Graphics Pipeline and Rendering Technologies

High framerates, smooth animations, and quality display are key to user interaction. Igalia has years of experience building and optimizing many different parts of the graphics stack.

Companies developing software for mobile, embedded or desktop environments often find the graphics and rendering software stack to be one of their greatest challenges. The most successful devices and software platforms have optimized, frictionless user experience, including fast rendering and fluid touch interfaces.

At Igalia we have been creating high performance user interfaces and middleware for the past decade. Along the way, we've built accelerated compositors, eliminated hardware bottlenecks, optimized rendering of web browsers, and perfected font display.

Open source work is a part of our company culture, so we are long time contributors to and integrators of toolkits and APIs like Mesa, OpenGL, GTK+, EFL, Qt, Clutter/Cogl and Wayland. Some of our work includes:

  • Implementation of new standards such as WebGL and WebAudio, multimedia acceleration and GStreamer integration in WebKit
  • Maintenance of GStreamer support in WebKit
  • Accelerated large drop-shadows in web engines
  • Building cross-process graphics architectures and compositors for projects like WebKit2

We can help you ensure that your users have a compelling experience powered by an optimized graphics software stack.

Debugging graphics code using replacement shaders (Linux, Mesa)

Sometimes, when working with the mesa drivers, modifying or replacing a shader might be extremely useful for debugging. Mesa allows users to replace their shaders at runtime without having to change the original code by providing these environment...
