Mazatech releases the second AmanithVG technology preview.

AmanithVG is a crossplatform implementation of OpenVG, the new API for hardware accelerated 2D vector and raster graphics. Differently from any other OpenVG implementation, AmanithVG is entirely built on top of OpenGL (from 1.1 to 2.0, using extensions where available) and OpenGL|ES (1.1 and 2.0) APIs. Benchmarks show that AmanithVG rendering engine outperforms the other OpenVG implementations and GDI+.

OpenVG is an open standard maintained by the Khronos Group. It defines a low-level API for vector graphics libraries, such as those associated with Macromedia Flash, or the W3C's SVG (scalable vector graphics) specification. OpenVG enables fluidly interactive 2D performance at very low power levels, Khronos says, and targets small-screen devices with user interfaces based on vector graphics.
