Imagination Technologies debuts accelerated OpenVGTM technology on the PowerVR MBX Family at 3GSM 2006

Imagination Technologies, a leader in system-on-chip intellectual property (SoC IP), is debuting PowerVR support for the OpenVG API on the company’s stand at the 3GSM World Congress 2006 in Barcelona, Spain from 13-16 February 2006.

PowerVR MBX, the leading mobile graphics acceleration solution, offers full acceleration for OpenVG, achieving many times the performance of software implementations with significantly reduced power consumption.

OpenVG is an industry-standard, cross-platform API that provides a low-level hardware acceleration interface for vector graphics libraries such as SVG. OpenVG is targeted at handheld devices that require portable acceleration of high-quality vector graphics for compelling user interfaces and text on small screen devices.

Says David McBrien, VP business development, Imagination Technologies: “”;Mobile devices need the smooth, high-quality 2D vector graphics to enable high-quality user interfaces and ultra-readable text on small screens. With support for OpenVG PowerVR can provide a low-power consumption solution with a high level of acceleration for 2D graphics such as SVG, PDF and Postscript. This accelerated, scalable anti-aliased vector graphics solution opens up new possibilities for advanced UI, navigation applications, games, e-books, screensavers and multimedia content.””;

PowerVR SGX, Imagination’s new generation PowerVR shader based graphics and video technology family, newly available for licensing, also supports OpenVG.
