DMP has announced a new two day getting start GLSL Programming training course on February 18th and 19th 2010. This course introduces the world of programmable pipeline by explaining basic topics of the GLSL(OpenGL Shading Language) which is a core feature of OpenGL ES 2.x and OpenGL 2.x. The course is offered in Japan in Japanese.
ALT Software has released optimized OpenGL ES 1.1 and OpenVG 1.1 graphics drivers for Imagination Technologies POWERVR MBX graphics core. The drivers are designed to work on Wind River’s VxWorks and Wind River Linux operating systems.
DMP is proud to announce two all new OpenGL ES programming training courses. For those who have taken past courses, these are two new courses. OpenGL ES programming training I and II will run January 14-15 and January 21-22 2010. Complete details are available online for the Training I and Training II course in english, or Japanese.
Following their successful participation in SIGGRAPH Asia 2008, The Khronos Group is again hosting a “Developer University” as well as expanding their activities by exhibiting on the show floor. The Khronos Group is proud to invite you to Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan at booth C12. Updates will be given on all of the major Khronos API's including OpenGL, OpenCL, COLLADA, OpenMAX, OpenVG and OpenGLES, as well, some major announces surrounding WebGL. Complete details as they become available are online.
Imagination Technologies will start to deliver IP for its POWERVR SGX543MP multi-processor graphics cores in early December. The POWERVR SGX543MP features scalable GP-GPU compute power, which can be fully utilised through all Khronos APIs including OpenGL ES 2.0/1.1, OpenVG™ 1.x and OpenCL™.
The Open Toolkit library is an advanced, low-level C# wrapper around OpenGL, OpenCL and OpenAL. It is suitable for games, scientific applications and any other project that requires 3D graphics, audio or compute functionality. Version 1.0 beta-1 introduces type-safe OpenGL ES 2.0 binding and a large number of new OpenGL tutorials on triangle picking, shaders, cubemaps and vertex buffer objects. It also contains a significant number of bug- and stability fixes; improves multi-monitor support; and improves support for multi-threading. Due to the amount and impact of the included bug fixes, users of previous versions are strongly encouraged to upgrade.
Freescales i.MX51 processors for automotive applications, and industrial and consumer applications, incorporates dedicated OpenVG™ and OpenGL®-ES hardware acceleration that is vital for popular customer requirements like Adobe Flash. "In combination with the QNX Aviage Middleware, customers can easily develop rich multimedia products with highly advanced human-machine interfaces imperative to the automotive infotainment space” said Romain Saha, business development manager at QNX Software Systems. Supported frameworks include DirectShow for Windows Embedded, GStreamer for GNOME™ and the Ubuntu OS, and OpenMAX™ for Android. Optimized graphics middleware for X Window System, OpenGL-ES and OpenVG graphics engines are also provided to enable rich user interfaces and graphics.
The latest version of VMWare Fusion, a virtualization application for Mac was released today. Fusion 3 now offersOpenGL acceleration for Windows machines (OpenGL 1.4 in Windows 7; OpenGL 2.1 in Windows XP) and better DirectX support, which allows for Windows’ Aero 3D effects in both Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Renesas Technology announced the SH7777 (SH-NaviJ3), the third product in the SH-NaviJ Series of system-on-chip (SoC) devices for compact portable navigation and infotainment systems and low- and mid-priced dashboard-mounted car navigation and infotainment systems. It speeds up development through OpenGL ES 1.1 support and offers enhanced multimedia functions such as terrestrial digital TV broadcast support.
