(AMI) are pleased to announce a collaborative relationship to offer AMI's VGK platform, a collection of integrated software tools that extend Adobe's Flash product functionality by allowing the technology to operate in a wide variety of systems, from low-power embedded devices to high-end 3D computers, for Vivante's GPUs. Pairing Vivante's innovative ScalarMorphic GPU architecture with AMI's VGK platform will enable sophisticated UI tools to be used in embedded systems such as cameras, mobile devices, games, eReaders, netbooks, Set Top Boxes (STBs), home entertainment products, and toys. The VGK platform will be featured and performance tuned to Vivante's GPUs giving a competitive advantage to Vivante's licensees.
"Our customers are now asking for embedded Flash capabilities that can be easily scaled to meet the various display resolution requirements of their devices," said Wei-Jin Dai, Vivante President and CEO. "Animated Media's VGK platform allows stunning graphics and animations to be used on the small screens of mobile and handheld devices, and scaled to HD 1080p resolutions when connected to native or external displays. Artists can now use well known tools for both fast prototyping and production of User Interfaces."
