Storyboard on Fujitsu Jade

Feb 23, 2012 10:10:52 PM

We have been working closely with Fujitsu to support their graphics platforms. The first one to be released is the Jade platform. This is a great ARM platform which can be accelerated using the Fujitsu VO3 library. This library allows Storyboard to be fully accelerated on the Jade platform and give high quality animation effects and great framerates on a lower end platform. Our flexible achitecture allowed us to fully accelerate the graphics pipeline on the Jade. The next step is to integrate our 3D model rendering plugin included in Storyboard 2.0.

Here is a video clip of Storyboard running on the Jade platform using the QNX operating system (excuse the odd pulse of the LCD as the timings are not quite right).

Brian co-founded Crank Software in 2007, after leading the graphics development group at QNX Software Systems where he spent the majority of his career working and consulting on UI design, embedded software architecture, and web browser technology. As he watched embedded graphics teams struggle, he developed an acute understanding of the common workflow problem between the designers and engineers. Brian built Crank Storyboard out of this need to help these teams collaborate more effectively, optimize for exceptional performance, and get their award-winning touch screens to market, close to 50% faster. A triathlon and mountain biking enthusiast (explaining the name Crank Software), Brian is a regular Ironman and cyclocross participant, and can often be found biking the trails with his co-founders behind the Crank offices in Kanata, Ottawa. Brian holds an Electrical Engineering degree from the Technical University of Nova Scotia.
