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:

OpenKCam - Advanced camera and sensor control - CALL for Industry Participation

OpenKCam is a royalty-free standard for advanced, low-level control of mobile and embedded cameras and sensors. Mobile and embedded devices are increasingly being equipped with the sensors and processing power for advanced camera-based applications such as computational photography, face and gesture processing, augmented reality and 3D object and scene reconstruction; While Khronos is defining APIs for vision and image processing the industry still lacks a camera API with low-level control of the camera sensor, lens and flash to generate the input image stream needed by cutting-edge computational photography and computer vision; The OpenKCam working group will drive industry consensus to create a cross-platform API that provides functionality such as: burst control over sensor, flash and lens, system wide time stamping of sensor samples, multiple sensor control, output format and resolution selection, region of interest extraction, and consistent device and frame metadata.

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.

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.

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.
