Khronos Releases OpenVX 1.2 Specification

• Tags: API Specification OpenVX Khronos Releases OpenVX 1.2 Specification

The Khronos Group announces the immediate release of the OpenVX 1.2 specification for cross-platform acceleration of computer vision applications and libraries. OpenVX is a high-level, graph-based API targeted at real-time mobile and embedded platforms. This open, cross-platform, royalty-free standard enables performance-portable, power-optimized computer vision applications such as face, body, and gesture tracking, smart video surveillance, autonomous driver assistance systems, visual inspection, and robotics. Core OpenVX 1.2 has significantly expanded functionality, including conditional execution, feature detection, and classification operations.   Read More

Khronos Finalizes glTF 1.0 Specification

• Tags: Specification glTF WebGL Press Release Khronos Finalizes glTF 1.0 Specification

Khronos announced that the glTF™ 1.0 (GL Transmission Format ) royalty-free specification for transmission and loading of 3D content has been finalized for Ratification and is immediately available for use by tools and application vendors. glTF is an efficient, interoperable asset delivery format that compresses the size of 3D scenes and models, and minimizes runtime processing by applications using WebGL™ and other APIs. glTF also defines a common publishing format for 3D content tools and services.    Read More

Khronos Releases Standardized Data Format Specification

• Tags: Specification Press Release

The Khronos Group today announced the ratification and public release of the Khronos Data Format Specification 1.0. This new standard provides precise mechanisms to generate machine-readable format descriptions of repetitive data, such as pixels, enabling standards and software to cleanly communicate and interoperate. This royalty-free specification will be used across multiple Khronos API initiatives, and is open to be used by third party standards and applications.   Read More

Khronos Group releases the SPIR 2.0 provisional specification

• Tags: API Specification SPIR OpenCL

The Khronos Group today announced the ratification and public release of the SPIR 2.0 provisional specification that provides a non-source encoding, and binary level portability, for OpenCL 2.0 device programs. SPIR (Standard Portable Intermediate Representation) is the industry's first open, cross-platform Intermediate Representation standard for portable heterogeneous parallel computing and is based on LLVM IR. SPIR enables developers to avoid exposing sensitive kernel source and enables a diversity of language front-ends to easily target OpenCL platforms and devices in addition to OpenCL C. Visit the SPIR specification in the OpenCL registry.   Read More

Khronos Releases OpenGL ES 3.0 Specification 
to Bring Mobile 3D Graphics to the Next Level

• Tags: GPU 3D graphics Mobile Specification OpenGL OpenGL ES

The Khronos Group today announced the immediate release of the OpenGL® ES 3.0 specification, bringing significant functionality and portability enhancements to the industry-leading, royalty-free 3D graphics API that is used on the majority of the world’s smartphones and tablets. OpenGL ES 3.0 provides access to state-of-the-art GPU functionality with portability across diverse mobile and embedded operating systems and platforms. OpenGL ES 3.0 is backwards compatible with OpenGL ES 2.0, enabling applications to incrementally add new visual features to applications. The full specification and reference materials are available for immediate download at http://www.khronos.org/registry/gles/.   Read More

Khronos Releases ASTC Next-Generation 
Texture Compression Specification

• Tags: 3D API graphics Specification OpenGL OpenGL ES

The Khronos Group today announced the immediate release of the royalty-free, Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression (ASTC™) LDR extension specification, defining a new, highly flexible texture compression scheme for developers using both the OpenGL® ES and OpenGL® 3D graphics APIs. ASTC is an exceptionally efficient compression technology which allows encoding of for a wide variety of texture formats at bit-rates of 8 bits per pixel to below 1 bit per pixel. ASTC is published as a Khronos extension, KHR_compressed_texture_astc_ldr, which is available from the Khronos website.   Read More

Khronos Group Releases OpenMAX IL 1.2 Provisional Specification

• Tags: API OpenMAX Specification

The Khronos Group today announced the release of OpenMAX™ IL 1.2 as a provisional specification. OpenMAX IL is a royalty-free, cross-platform C-language API for integration of multimedia components into media frameworks to simplify deployment of audio/video encoders/decoders, camera control, and audio, video and image processing algorithms across diverse platforms. OpenMAX IL 1.2 is a backward compatible upgrade that includes dynamic buffer allocation, improved media graph management, in-band signaling, enhanced audio video synchronization, a wider range of standard components and enhanced camera control capabilities together with many other improvements and clarifications to increase interoperability between media processing components. The specification has been released in provisional form to enable developers and implementers to provide feedback before specification finalization. The OpenMAX IL 1.2 provisional specification is available for immediate download.   Read More

OpenMAX AL version 1.0.1 has been released
