Other Khronos Group APIs and Technologies
The Khronos Group has worked on a number of Technologies over the years. Some of the other Khronos Technologies include the following:
OpenVG - The Standard for Vector Graphics Acceleration
OpenVG™ is a royalty-free, cross-platform API that provides a low-level hardware acceleration interface for vector graphics libraries such as Flash and SVG. OpenVG is targeted primarily at handheld devices that require portable acceleration of high-quality vector graphics for compelling user interfaces and text on small screen devices - while enabling hardware acceleration to provide fluidly interactive performance at very low power levels.
OpenGL SC - Safety Critical Profile
The open standard OpenGL® SC Safety Critical Profile is defined to meet the unique needs of the safety-critical market for avionics, industrial, military, medical and automotive applications including D0178-B certification. It simplifies safety-critical certification, guarantees repeatability, allows compliance with real-time requirements, and facilitates porting of legacy safety-critical applications.
OpenMAX DL - The Standard for Media Library Portability
OpenMAX™ is a royalty-free, cross-platform API that provides comprehensive streaming media codec and application portability by enabling accelerated multimedia components to be developed, integrated and programmed across multiple operating systems and silicon platforms. The OpenMAX API will be shipped with processors to enable library and codec implementers to rapidly and effectively make use of the full acceleration potential of new silicon - regardless of the underlying hardware architecture.
OpenWF - The Standard for building composited windowing systems
OpenWF™ is a royalty-free, cross-platform API that provides a low-level hardware abstraction interface for composited windowing systems to make use of composition and display hardware. OpenWF is targeted primarily at handheld devices that require portable acceleration of composition whilst minimizing memory bandwidth usage and power levels.
OpenKODE - Khronos Open Development Environment
OpenKODE® is a royalty-free, open standard that combines a set of native APIs to increase source portability for rich media and graphics applications. OpenKODE reduces mobile platform fragmentation by providing a cross-platform API for accessing operating system resources, and a media architecture for portable access to advanced mixed graphics acceleration.
OpenML - The Standard for Dynamic Media Authoring
OpenML is a cross-platform standard programming environment for capturing, transporting, processing, displaying, and synchronizing digital media (2D and 3D graphics, audio and video processing, I/O, and networking).
