Mobile Media Developer podcast #1: OpenKODE

The Khronos Group has launched the first episode in the Mobile Media Developer podcast series. In this new series, the developers behind the industry standards for 3D, 2D, video and audio for mobile devices describe how the new technologies work and how they can be used by developers, carriers and manufacturers to create applications for mobile phone, handhelds and game consoles.

The first podcast previews the new OpenKODE APIs. OpenKODE provides functionally similar to DirectX on the desktop, except it is cross-platform, royalty-free and streamlined for handheld devices. The goal of OpenKODE is to make it easier for developers (and carriers) to deploy rich media applications on mobile phones, by providing system abstraction so that develoeprs don’t have to worry about the underlying handset hardware or OS. It also offers state-of-the-art media acceleration technologies as well as access to operating system resources, input devices and displays.
