Digital Airways Makes 3D Mobile Graphics a Reality

Mobile user experience software specialist, Digital Airways, introduces Kaleido 3D, an advanced graphic rendering solution for mobile phones. Building on the Kaleido UI software solution, Kaleido 3D allows 2G and 3G handsets manufacturers to create full 3D user interfaces quickly and cost effectively.

Taking advantage of the OpenGL-ES standard, Kaleido 3D responds to handset manufacturers’ challenges in developing sophisticated 3D graphics for user interfaces and product positioning by providing a multiplatform UI framework and a library of pre-integrated customizable and extendable functions all aimed at simplifying the creation of any sort of innovative animation. The solution takes full advantage of platform resources such as graphic accelerator, 2D/3D engines, as well as image codecs.

As the undeniable trend for advanced graphics in mobile user experience takes hold, handset makers seek efficient UI solutions to compete in the high-end mobile handset game. “Creating 3D user interfaces with traditional programming solutions, however, is technically difficult”, says Philippe Silberzahn, Digital Airways’ CEO. “The unique benefit of Kaleido 3D is to extend Kaleido’s recognized ease of creating 2D user experiences to the 3D world.”

Kaleido 3D completes and extends Kaleido Animator, introduced by Digital Airways earlier this year. Together, they facilitate the creation of animated backgrounds, 3D moving objects (e.g. buttons, indicators), splash screens, wizards (e.g. help, notification of events), dynamic menus, transition between contexts (e.g. sliding, fading in and out, torsion), management of layers (alpha blending), etc. Kaleido 3D is part of the Kaleido user experience solution that powers millions of devices worldwide.
