We've collected some of the more interesting items from this event for you:
“Following our successful participation in SIGGRAPH Asia 2008, The Khronos Group is again hosting “Developer University” and expanding our activities in 2009 by exhibiting on the show floor. SIGGRAPH ASIA is an ideal opportunity for international standards bodies such as Khronos to effectively outreach to the Asian graphics community. The response from our members to demonstrate and lecture at SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 has been extremely positive and we expect a successful event in Yokohama.”
Neil Trevett, President, The Khronos Group

|Company||Demo spot description|
|DMP||OpenGL ES 2.0 shader-based graphics IP core "SMAPH-S" and "SMAPH-F" (High-performance vector graphics IP core) which meet the demands of various embedded UI (User Interface) applications.|
An OpenGL ES 1.0/1.1 compliant 3D engine that achieved a dramatically improved processing speed and quality. It is highly portable.
A cost-effective, complete software implementation of OpenGL ES, the industry standard for embedded 3D graphics API. It enables manufacturers to support the industry standard OpenGL ES 1.1 at low cost without GPU.
a 2D vector graphic solution for embedded systems. This is based on OpenVG and SVG which are standard of vector graphic and improves performance of graphic on mobile application programs and services.
a 3D graphic solution based on OpenGL ES and COLLADA for embedded systems.
|Imagination Technologies||The latest demos of POWERVR SGX & POWERVR MBX supporting OpenGL-ES1.1/2.0 and OpenVG1.1|
|NEC & NEC Systems Technologies||GA88 series IWAYAG achieves high function, high performance vector graphics for digital home appliances, car navigation systems and other visual display functions installed embedded devices.|
|TAKUMI||GSHARK-TAKUMI series - TAKUMI's Graphics accelerator IP core of the smallest class in the industry offers graphics solutions that enrich the display devices of various embedded and mobile systems.|
