    Discuss This!


Several digital media leaders, including 3dfx, IBM, SGI, and various others, announced the formation of the Khronos Special Interest Group, joining forces to create a standard API for graphics and audio. Check out the press release over here on Yahoo, or visit the Khronos web site for more details. Here's a clip from the press release:

" OpenML will eliminate the need for professional application developers to develop different and proprietary programming interfaces for various media input and output devices. In addition, implementations of the API across multiple operating systems will enable portability of software applications. Extensions to OpenGL that handle compositing of multiple graphics and video streams will make it easier to enable the direct implementation of mixing 2D, 3D audio, and video data to create dazzling effects in authored content. Other OpenGL extensions will relate to enabling high quality rendered output. "
