Vector Graphics Acceleration Without the Need
for Special Hardware

Standards and Speed on your Existing GPU
OpenVG™ is an emerging standard for 2D vector graphic, bitmap and font rendering on mobile devices.  It is essentially a companion API for OpenGL® ES, the mobile industry standard for 3D graphics.  Both standards are managed by the Khronos Group.

Standards are good, of course, but a graphics standard is only valuable if it's fast enough to be useful.  In practice, that often requires hardware acceleration.

Hooked Wireless offers a way to accelerate vector graphics without the need for special OpenVG hardware.  We have layered vector graphics on top of OpenGL ES, enabling accelerated vector graphics on standard 3D hardware.

Now, you can have the best of both worlds - high-speed vector and bitmap manipulation, without the cost of OpenVG silicon.

Hooked VG-on-ES is one of the very few drivers that can approach vector graphics standards without sacrificing speed, and is based on both the 1.01 and 1.1 feature sets.
