Earlier this week, at the Microsoft Windows 10 Event in New York, Microsoft shared their vision around 3D for everyone. As part of achieving that vision Microsoft announced they are joining the 3D Formats working group at Khronos to collaborate on its GL Transmission Format (glTF).
This webinar examines both the graphical and video content needed to drive the adoption of VR. The widespread uptake of VR will depend on the creation of compelling use cases for the consumer. We will focus on two main use cases today, immersive 360 degree video content creation and display, and high quality gaming.
What will you learn?
• How to create compelling 3D GFX content for VR applications
• Khronos APIs and extensions for VR graphics
• 360° video creation – encoding, stitching and playback
Don’t miss the Vulkan deep-dive webinar on Tuesday September 27th at 10am PDT. This one-hour webinar provides a detailed review of the Vulkan Validation Layers, how they are architected, how you use them, and why they are so important. The main presentation is followed by a Q&A session.
The Khronos Brisbane Chapter this time around will have distinguished speaker Dr Josh Bowden from CSIRO, talking about developing OpenCL applications for High Performance Computing, as a package in R, and Daniel Filonik who will talk about his DataChopin novel interface for collaborative visualisation. The meetup gets underway on September 8th in Brisbane. More details online.

Khronos Group is at SIGGRAPH this week. If you are going be sure to bookmark our SIGGRAPH event page containing our complete list of BOFs and Khronos related sessions. We'll have free t-shirts, a Chapters BOF on Tuesday, several Khronos Tech BOFs on Wednesday as well as our famous After Party BOF Blitz where you can meet, ask questions and eat with some of the folks behind the Khronos technologies. Our Wednesday line-up includes:
- OpenVX & OpenCL @ 10am
- OpenCL, SYCL, & SPIR-V @ 11:00am
- WebGL & glTF @ 1:00pm
- Vulkan, OpenGL, & OpenGL ES @ 2:30pm
- and the Khronos After Party @ 6:00pm
The schedules for the all-day Khronos BOF Blitz and famous BOF Blitz After Party are now online. Featuring four BOFs on Wednesday July 27th, and a 5th BOF on Tuesday July 26th for Khronos Chapters. We've also compiled a list of all the SIGGRAPH sessions, courses, workshops and BOFs that contain Khronos Technology. Unsurprisingly there is a ton of Vulkan stuff going on this year. Checkout the event page today. Hope to see lots of you in Anaheim during SIGGRAPH!
Learn more about this performance and power-optimized computer vision processing API directly from Khronos, the people who created it. In this 1-hour session, we will talk about the OpenVX API and will answer your questions.
If you were not in Cambridge England on May 26th and missed the "Moving to Vulkan" DevDay sponsored by ARM, you can now view the slides online. We will be posting video of the speakers within the next few days.
Khronos sponsored a day long course covering both the function-based API and the graph API that enable OpenVX developers to efficiently run computer vision algorithms on heterogeneous computing architectures. One section explains the tutorial exercises with a VirtualBox VM, which can be downloaded from the tutorial on Github. The Embedded Vision Summit schedule is located here, the tutorial is on Github and the associated videos from the day long tutorial are available on Youtube.
Google will be holding their annual developer festival with hands-on learning, technical talks, and a chance to hear more about Google’s latest developer products May 18-20 in Mountain View California. If you are going, be sure not to miss Hai Nguyen's talk on 'Make shinier, faster mobile games with Vulkan'.
YetiWare will be talking OpenCL at their booth at OCE Discovery in Toronto this week. OCE Discovery is Canada's leading innovation-to-commercialization conference showcasing leading-edge technologies, best practices and research in Ontario Canada.
Dominic Witczak from AMD is holding a meetup in Poland on May 7th to cover the most common mistakes developers make when using Vulkan. you may read more about this event in Polish on the event page and on Facebook. The event is listed on the Khronos website in english.
