Khronos Group Prioritizes China’s Participation in Creation of Key International Technology Standards

The Khronos™ Group, an international industry consortium creating open standards for the acceleration of graphics, parallel computing, dynamic media and sensor processing, today commenced the opening events of its most recent tour to Beijing and Shanghai. The Khronos Board of Directors, including AMD, Apple, ARM, Epic, Ericsson, Freescale, Imagination Technologies, Intel, Nokia, NVIDIA, Oracle, Qualcomm, Samsung, SONY and Texas Instruments, has made engaging the participation of Chinese industry a priority and has committed significant financial and staffing resources to Chinese activities. Khronos standards include OpenGL™ ES, the 3D graphics API used to power the user interface, games and applications on almost every smartphone in the world, OpenCL® for heterogeneous parallel computation and WebGL™ for 3D graphics for HTML5.

Khronos provides a forum for open, international industry cooperation to create royalty-free standards that enable leading-edge operating systems and applications to access advanced computing and acceleration silicon. Khronos standards enable the silicon community to define future acceleration functionality to drive market growth and industry momentum. Khronos provides a state-of-the-art Intellectual property framework that protects both member IP and products shipping using conformant implementations of Khronos specifications.

Khronos launched a pan-Asian outreach tour in Beijing in December 2010 to encourage further Asian cooperation. One outcome is that the Korean Government has made a significant financial investment to build the 3D Fusion Technology Center to be managed by Kyungpook National University that will be at the center of Khronos activities in Korea. In February 2012, Taiwan selected one of their leading University professors to lead educational activities in Taipei and Khronos has been invited to return to meet with Taiwanese industry and academic members at Computex.

“We recognize China as a key player in the global mobile industry and therefore have prioritized the participation of the Chinese technology industry to contribute to the development of mobile acceleration standards,” said Neil Trevett, president of Khronos and vice president of mobile content at NVIDIA. “The royalty-free ecosystem of Khronos API standards continues to be shaped through international participation, and is ideal for expanding global market opportunities. Chinese companies will benefit significantly from Khronos participation and standards development will, in return, reflect Chinese industry requirements and priorities.”

Khronos has a series of free training and outreach events here in China this week, where any interested companies, universities or students are welcome to attend a day of lectures by Khronos technology experts. The sessions feature an industry analysis by Dr. Jon Peddie, President of JPR, a leading graphics consultancy, and a panel session conducted by Kathleen Maher, senior analyst at JPR. Details on the Beijing DevU on March 14th are here: http://www.khronos.org/news/events/beijing-china-devu-2012. Details on the Shanghai event on March 17th are here: http://www.khronos.org/news/events/shanghai-china-2012.

Khronos has created a Chinese language technical forum at cn.khronos.org, and is requesting volunteers who are fluent in Chinese and English and possess a firm understanding of the technical aspects of our APIs to apply to help moderate the forum. If you are interested in applying, please email [email protected].

Continuing the Khronos commitment to engaging with the China technology industry, the Khronos Group will exhibit at the China Game Developer Conference on July 25-27, 2012, in Shanghai, where guests are invited see Khronos members demonstrate Khronos-based products in the “Khronos Pavilion” and learn about Khronos APIs at “Developer University.” More details at: http://www.khronos.org/news/events/cgdc-2012#devu.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
