Luxoft announced the creation of its Professional VP9 Codec Software Development Kit (SDK). Luxoft’s codec is designed to help video content providers, cloud servers, and live-streaming companies produce effective, real-time 4K/UltraHD encoding and video streaming. As a result of utilizing the OpenCL standard, the SDK also offers a significant time-to-market advantage for todays hardware architectures such including CPUs, GPUs, and heterogeneous computing systems. VP9 4K SDK is ready for beta evaluation.
Khronos OpenROAD is an animated video featuring all the royalty-free Khronos APIs working together in an open ecosystem. We started with an idea: a simple sketch of a sports car–and then show how Khronos APIs make it a reality. Our technology powers everything from the initial CAD design and simulation using OpenGL and OpenCL, to the in-car entertainment and communications using OpenSL ES, OpenMAX, and OpenVX, to its starring role in a mobile game using WebGL and WebCL.
