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.

Intel Mesa Vulkan driver now supports shaderInt16

The Vulkan specification includes a number of optional features that drivers may or may not support, as described in chapter 30.1 Features. Application developers can query the driver for supported features via vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures() and then...

ir3/nir: Set up image_dims consts for image_deref_size intrinsic too

`nir_intrinsic_image_deref_size` is not being considered during scan for driver constants, so image constants are not emitted if a shader only ever query the size of an image (no load, store, atomic op, etc). This is unlikely, but...
