See the hottest new technologies from startups that are transforming computing. In a lively and fast-paced exchange, the Emerging Companies Summit CEO on Stage sessions will feature CEOs from three startups who will each have 15 minutes to introduce their companies and interact with a panel of leading venture capitalists, technology executives, and industry analysts.
Standards such as Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), PostScript, TrueType outline fonts, and immersive web content such as Flash depend on a resolution-independent 2D rendering paradigm that GPUs have not traditionally accelerated. This tutorial explains a new opportunity to greatly accelerate vector graphics, path rendering, and immersive web standards using the GPU. By attending, you will learn how to write OpenGL applications that accelerate the full range of path rendering functionality. Not only will you learn how to render sophisticated 2D graphics with OpenGL, you will learn to mix such resolution-independent 2D rendering with 3D rendering and do so at dynamic, real-time rates.
