AZTEQ mobile, an advanced provider console-class gaming solutions for mobile devices and Tokyo-based Acrodea, a leader in the mobile middleware space providing products such as VIVID UI and X-Forge, have announced their collaboration effort to commercialize OpenKODE. Developed by the Khronos Group, OpenKODE is a royalty-free, cross-platform standard that combines a set of native APIs into a comprehensive media stack specification for accelerating rich media and graphics applications. See full press release Here.
OpenKODE aims to make advanced media capabilities consistently available across multiple devices for increased native source portability and reduced mobile platform fragmentation. Acrodea continues to play a leading role in the development of the OpenKODE specification while AZTEQ, as a new member of Khronos Group, will bring its deep insight of game service deployment, and extensive content developer relationships to accelerate the industry adoption of OpenKODE.
Through this collaboration, AZTEQ will utilize the OpenKODE solution provided by Acrodea on its AZMA handset client software. AZMA is a complete, pre-integrated and tested software offering for mobile gaming. This collaboration will enable popular, console-class game titles to be offered on mobile devices with significantly lowered porting costs and an accelerated time to market.
