Rightware announces beta of Kanzi User Interface solution.

Worldwide Computer Products News-25 August 2010-Rightware announces beta of Kanzi User Interface solution(C)1995-2010 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

3D graphics specialist Rightware Oy announced on Wednesday that its Kanzi User Interface solution has reached beta and now supports devices with the Android operating system.

According to the company, Kanzi provides the missing link between 3D graphics content creation tools, such as 3DS Max, Maya and Softimage, and target devices. Artists can export their designs from these software packages to Kanzi Tool using COLLADA data format. Designers then compose the actual user interface application and apply 3D graphics effects within the Kanzi Tool itself.

A desktop windows version of the Kanzi runtime is embedded into the tool, bringing a real-time view of the final application directly to the desktop. This eliminates the need to continuously build the project to target a device during development in order to inspect it, shortening the design cycle.

Kanzi runtime can be integrated to a range of target devices, even those with different operating systems such as Android, MeeGo and Symbian.

The solution features a unified pipeline for OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenGL ES 1.x based 3D graphics and supports real-time streaming of data, vertex and fragment shaders, multi-texturing and dynamic lighting. There is also an animation framework supporting key frame animations such as vertex, object and bone-based animations.

Kanzi is available immediately for qualified customers. No pricing details were disclosed.
