Device manufacturers achieve unprecedented user interface differentiation in record time with photorealistic 3D content
Rightware®, the leader in embedded 3D user interface (UI) technologies, today announced that it will release Android 3D Homescreen Template to radically shorten the development time of 3D user interfaces on Android devices. Rightware’s ready-made 3D homescreen design template enables industry’s fastest creation, interaction testing and deployment of photorealistic – and even stereoscopic – 3D homescreens on Android devices.
Rightware’s Android 3D Homescreen Template is powered by Kanzi® UI Solution and provides a comprehensive design tool with a design template for creating feature-rich 3D homescreens. The 3D Homescreen Template can be used with Android 2.x, 3.x and 4.0.x. Rightware has optimized the Kanzi UI Solution for latest CPUs and GPUs to ensure optimal performance. The 3D Homescreen Template is provided with native OpenGL ES support and is capable of powering stereoscopic 3D user interface elements and homescreen entities with extreme swiftness.
Android 3D Homescreen template will be an integral part of Kanzi UI Solution –industry’s the most modern and advanced design software for Android 3D user interface creation. Since Kanzi was first released in January 2011, it has helped manufacturers of mobile phones, automotive and consumer devices to differentiate their user interfaces and stand out from the masses.
“Since the launch of our stereoscopic 3D homescreen with diverse customization capabilities at MWC last year, we have been recognized as a unique and compelling 3D user interface technology provider. By offering this 3D homescreen template as an integral part of Kanzi Studio, we’re yet again demonstrating committed product leadership and we’re determined to continue building industry’s leading technology to equip our customers with even better, faster, feature-rich 3D homescreens in their new Android devices,” said Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Rightware.
Kanzi UI Solution consists of two product components: Kanzi Studio and Kanzi Engine. Kanzi Engine is an integral part of a device’s software platform, whereas Kanzi Studio is a standalone UI design software enabling rapid creation of innovative 3D user interfaces. Kanzi Studio works seamlessly with leading 3D content creation tools, such as Autodesk 3DS Max, Maya and XSI and Blender. Once built, modifying and deploying UI designs to new devices and platforms can be done seamlessly and without additional engineering effort. Given its long work in field of graphics performance testing, Rightware has been able to optimize Kanzi Engine to make it capable of executing comprehensive UI designs with superior performance.
As well as providing the industry’s most cutting-edge user interface technologies, Rightware also provides its customers with a range of UI services, including UI design and implementation.
