Imagination Technologies reports that, with over 100 products from a wide range of leading OEMs now shipping using its POWERVR SGX graphics acceleration technology 2010 will be the year in which OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics overtakes OpenGL ES 1.1 devices in terms of new deployments. Says Dr. Jon Peddie, president, Jon Peddie Research: “Simply put: Imagination’s POWERVR is the standard for mobile 3D graphics. The company has built an enviable lead, but more than that it has created an opportunity for both its customers, and the wider developer ecosystem to build a market that for applications alone will be worth more than $5 billion dollars in 2010. However it’s their overall capabilities in all aspects of multimedia that impresses.”
Esports and other virtual events have a loyal fan base, just as live events like the NBA or NFL have. To bring the excitement levels up a notch or two for fans and audiences within live events, sports, or esports broadcasts, producers are increasingly turning to real-time options to enhance their graphics and image content.
