Colorado Springs, CO (OPENPRESS) April 23, 2008 -- Altia, Inc. announces the release of the OpenGL ES target for the Altia DeepScreen code generator.
Altia DeepScreen is an embedded software tool that automatically generates tight, deployable C graphics code from the Altia Design graphical user interface (GUI) builder used for creating custom Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs). DeepScreen supports many embedded platforms -- including VxWorks, QNX, X11, miniGL and now OpenGL ES.
OpenGL ES is a royalty-free, cross-platform API for full-function 2D and 3D graphics on embedded systems. It consists of well-defined subsets of desktop OpenGL, creating a flexible and powerful low-level interface between software and graphics acceleration.
The new Altia OpenGL ES DeepScreen target is OS independent and may be ported to any environment with or without an OS. This target is suitable for both high and low end systems that have OpenGL. The OpenGL ES target is very lightweight and takes advantage of hardware acceleration wherever possible (for example, when rotating or scaling images). It all adds up to exceptional embedded target performance. Together, Altia and OpenGL ES offer a package that gets cutting-edge, animated, custom GUIs on the lowest cost hardware in the shortest time.
