Imagination’s PowerVR GPU is first to pass OpenVX 1.1 conformance with Khronos

Imagination Technologies announces that a PowerVR GPU is the first to achieve Khronos OpenVX 1.1 conformance. With OpenVX, developers can run fully optimized vision algorithms on the highly parallel, power-efficient PowerVR GPUs that are at the heart of many of the world’s mobile, automotive and embedded devices. Frank Brill, chairman of the Khronos OpenVX working group, says: “The momentum we are seeing with OpenVX is strong and growing, with conformant OpenVX 1.0 implementations and tools shipping from numerous vendors. We congratulate Imagination on being the first adopter member to achieve OpenVX 1.1 conformance, enabling developers creating applications on Imagination’s popular PowerVR GPUs to take advantage of OpenVX 1.1’s expanded range of processing functions and enhanced flexibility.” View all products that are in conformance with OpenVX or learn more about becoming an OpenVX adopter.
