NVIDIA Corporation today announced that it is demonstrating the world’s
first prototype implementation of the Khronos OpenKODE
1.0 specification and using this new open standard to accelerate an intuitive
user interface concept design at the 3GSM 2007 World Congress in Barcelona. The
demo showcases:
• Multi-tasking in a multi-windowed environment
• Fully accelerated translucent window compositing
• Innovative 3D user interface with transition effects

The demonstration on the booth of NVIDIA (Hall 1, Stand IC34)
coincides with the Khronos Group’s official release of the provisional
specification for OpenKODE 1.0. This demonstration highlights how OpenKODE enables
advanced user interfaces and accelerates multiple media types using a standardized
set of APIs to revolutionise how consumers interact with handheld devices.

NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable
graphics processor technologies, today announced that it is demonstrating the
world’s first prototype implementation of the Khronos OpenKODE™ 1.0
specification and using this new open standard to accelerate an intuitive user
interface concept design at the 3GSM 2007 World Congress in Barcelona. The demo
showcases:

• Multi-tasking in a multi-windowed environment

This demonstration highlights how OpenKODE enables advanced user interfaces and
accelerates multiple media types using a standardized set of APIs to
revolutionise how consumers interact with handheld devices.

“NVIDIA is a strong supporter of the Khronos Group and is committed to promoting
open standards for the mobile industry to reduce software fragmentation and
enable truly compelling handheld rich media to make its way into the hands of
consumers,” said Neil Trevett, vice president of embedded content at NVIDIA and
chairman of the Khronos Group. “NVIDIA is strongly focused on supporting Khronos
standards to expose its advanced media acceleration capabilities to the software
developer community while helping to drive the industry towards mass acceptance
of such open standards to enable a new generation of innovative mobile content.”

NVIDIA® GoForce® solutions will offer full support for OpenKODE 1.0 including
OpenGL® ES 1.1, OpenVG™ 1.0 and OpenKODE Core 1.0 with full EGL functionality
mandated by OpenKODE to enable sophisticated mixed mode 2D and 3D graphics.

OpenKODE is a royalty-free, cross-platform standard that combines a set of
native APIs into a comprehensive media stack specification for accelerating rich
media and graphics applications. For more details on OpenKODE, please visit
