Symbio and drawElements to Improve Graphics Platform Reliability on Android and Windows Phone 7 Series
BEIJING and HELSINKI, Finland, Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Symbio, a leading provider of R&D innovation services and outsourced product development solutions today announced it has partnered with drawElements, the expert in computer graphics technologies for embedded devices, to enable next generation high-end graphics in Android and Windows Phone 7 Series smartphones.
With the strategic partnership with drawElements, Symbio further expands its product development service offering in the area of graphics and multimedia on Android and Windows Phone 7 Series. Symbio will provide services built on top of the recently launched drawElements Quality Program (dEQP) that puts OpenGL ES 2.0 drivers to the test.
Symbio’s dEQP services benefit everyone involved in making high-end graphics a reality in the embedded space; from the GPU design team and silicon providers, to the device manufacturers and application developers. In addition to delivering quality assurance and providing test results of the strengths, weaknesses, and incompatibilities of OpenGL ES 2.0 implementations, Symbio provides product design and engineering consulting services to transform those test results into better and more reliable applications and devices that delight end users.
“Graphics and multimedia capabilities are clearly mission critical for mobile applications. To succeed in today’s highly competitive marketplace, device manufacturers and software developers need to provide the best user experience, and that requires laser focus on providing rock solid stability and the best possible graphics implementations,” explained Jacob Hsu, CEO of Symbio. “With services built on top of the dEQP tool, we help our clients attract consumers by ensuring their devices and applications are best-in-class.”
“dEQP was born from our noble plans to make the world a somewhat better place for our fellow developers. With dEQP, the industry will have a standard way to measure the quality of the multimedia APIs and continuously improve their quality. In the future, dEQP will be expanded to cover all major upcoming multimedia APIs and continue to support the latest standards,” explains Panu Wilska, CEO of drawElements.
Symbio will showcase its graphics and multimedia services and product engineering expertise at Mobile World Congress 2011. The Symbio team will be present at the Axel Technologies Hospitality Suite, 3.1HS157.
