New members Monotype Imaging, Scaleform, & TAT join to develop OpenVG; Hardware accelerated demos at GDC

• Tags:

OpenVG enables hardware acceleration of libraries such as such as Flash and SVG, enabling high-quality, anti-aliased, scalable 2D vector graphics on embedded and handheld devices with highly interactive performance and low levels of power consumption. The OpenVG standard has been designed to seamlessly interoperate with OpenGL ES 3D graphics; creating a high-performance, fully integrated 2D and 3D embedded graphics acceleration environment. New Khronos members Monotype Imaging, Scaleform, & TAT have joined to participate in ongoing development of the OpenVG API. At GDC there are demonstrations of hardware accelerated OpenVG from Bitboys, Hybrid Graphics, Scaleform, and PowerVR, as well as software implementations from HUONE and IkivoRead More
