The original incentive of OmniGraphics project is creating an easy-to-use, human-intuitive and reusable graphics library for software developer, to quickly create interactive, rich graphics application and game software. After years of evolution, more functionalities for 2D and 3D graphics manipulation have been implemented, and more programming language, operating system and hardware acceleration support have been added.
Particularly, seeing the significant popularity of
mobile device in consumer electronic market in recent year, OmniGraphics has
been regrouped into different editions to support vast variety devices, such as
desktop PC, handheld PDA, or cell-phone.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Powered by object-oriented programming language and advanced software development technologies, OmniGraphics is constructed with high-level graphics commands which hides the tenebrous low-level graphics routine calling for developer, and changes the codes into descriptive instructions.
Powered by advanced 2D and 3D graphics technology and hardware acceleration, OmniGraphics is suitable for creating any graphics application requiring maximum performance, from 2D image to 3D real-time animation, CAD/CAM/CAE, medical imaging, entertainment or any kind of visual simulation. Also for a specific device, OmniGraphics always tries to gain maximum performance by exploiting the device-specific optimization techniques.
OmniGraphics is constructed with high-level graphics commands and provides developer a consistent and intuitive programming interface in portable languages such as C++ and Java, for different device ranging from Desktop PC to PDA ( Windows Mobile, Palm ) and cell-phone. As a result, after finish one version of application, the developers can quickly derive a new version running on different device. OmniGraphics is a cost-effective solutions for graphics-intensive application.
