OpenKODE to define a mobile media application development environment

The OpenKODE™ (Khronos Open Development Environment) initiative will create a coherent development and deployment platform to enable and encourage the development of portable, high-performance media applications for mobile handsets. OpenKODE will bring together the family of Khronos Media Application Programming Interfaces (APIs): OpenGL® ES for 3D graphics, OpenMAX™ for streaming media, OpenVG™ for vector 2D graphics and OpenSL ES™ for audio; and will define a new user-input API and potentially add new APIs for access to functionality such as multi-player networking and operating system resources to create a complete, coherently designed, reliably available platform that can be implemented across a wide variety of mobile and embedded devices.
