LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CES 2013 -- Vivante Corporation, a global leader in graphics and GPU Compute technologies for consumer and embedded devices, today announced it has joined the GENIVI Alliance, an automotive and consumer electronics industry association driving the development and adoption of an open in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) reference platform. Vivante has rapidly expanded its footprint in the automotive market through partnerships with leading silicon vendors, automotive manufacturers, tier one suppliers, ISVs, and middleware providers that use the latest graphics and OpenCL features. Membership in the GENIVI Alliance allows Vivante to bring GPU expertise to the consortium and push forward innovations in IVI HMI displays.
IVI design and features are a major selling point and key differentiator for automobiles, and the first thing people notice when sitting in a car. An intuitive and beautifully designed IVI becomes an extension of driver and passenger outside the home, creating a comfort zone that combines consumer entertainment with real-time automobile information. IVI encompasses a wide range of applications like entertainment (games, music, news, movies, internet, and social media), radio, navigation, location services, telephony, gesture, and more.
GENIVI's mission is to simplify the development, testing, deployment, and field support of IVI platforms and enable fast time to market of GENIVI products. The platform is built on an open source, Linux-based, reusable solution that is unified across an automotive OEMs entire product line, from luxury to compact segments and across different makes and models. In a connected world where the car becomes a node in the IOT (internet-of-things), a standards body like GENIVI that facilitates development from concept to production will help accelerate mass adoption.
As a member of the GENIVI Alliance, Rightware® provides an HMI solution used by some of the top tier automotive OEMs to create visually stunning user interfaces. They stated the following: "The automotive industry has very high requirements for render quality in HMIs, they are looking for a solution that rids them of artifacts, fixes anti-aliasing issues, and improves the overall image quality. These features are important not only for safety reasons, but also as it strongly reflects to the overall quality image of the car," stated Ville Ilves, COO at Rightware®. "Rightware's Kanzi® Solution, which supports OpenGL ES 3.0, enables designers to take advantage of Vivante's OpenGL ES 3.0 hardware and continue pushing the envelope in graphical HMI quality. By combining these two technologies, automotive OEMs are able to deliver desktop-quality graphics and performance to the screens in your car."

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
