Your friends might be digging out their swimmies and cleaning up the barbecue but if you’re reading this, summer means something else entirely to you. It means Siggraph and a wonderful week in sunny San Diego spent in dark rooms laughing at teapot jokes.
Siggraph, the world’s largest support group for graphics lovers kicked off August 5 and runs through August 9 at the San Diego Convention center. There are several very important themes this year for the Khronos Group as it enables multimedia development on every computer platform from handhelds to super computers.
- OpenGL The OpenGL ARB Unveils Details of Upcoming OpenGL 3
- COLLADA will have another great BOF this year, with demonstrations of FX Composer 2.0, C4 Engine, 3DS Max, Maya, AgentFX, Verse, Poser, XSI, Anark Studio, COLLADA RT and Photoshop CS3.
- OpenKODE is gaining traction as handheld developers look for ways to port their applications across the wide variety of handheld platforms out there.
- OpenMAX APIs are being further developed to address the multiple requirements of multimedia on multiple platforms.
In fact, almost every working group within Khronos has news.
