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.
- HTML acceleration
- Graphical toolkits
- Graphical libraries

I have been quite busy with various things in the last few weeks, but I have finally found some time to clean up and upload the code of the OpenGL terrain render demo to Github. Since this was intended as … Continue reading →
Lately I have been working on a simple terrain OpenGL renderer demo, mostly to have a playground where I could try some techniques like shadow mapping and water rendering in a scenario with a non trivial amount of geometry, and … Continue reading...
Changes During the last year and something, my work at Igalia was focused on the Intel i965 driver for Mesa, the open source OpenGL implementation. Iago and Samuel were working for some time, then joined Edu and Antía, and then I joined myself, as the...
In case you haven’t heard yet, with the recently announced Mesa 12.0 release, Intel gen8+ GPUs expose OpenGL 4.3, which is quite a big leap from the previous OpenGL 3.3! Although this might surprise some, the truth is that even if the i965 driver...
Introduction The recent big news on the Igalia work on Mesa was that our effort getting the ARB_gpu_shader_fp64 and ARB_vertex_attrib_64bit extensions implemented for Intel Gen8+, allowed to expose OpenGL 4.2 for Gen8+. But I will let other igalians to...
This patch reverts 57bab6708f2bbc1ab8a3d202e9a467963596d462, which was causing issues with ILK and earlier VS programs. 1. brw_nir.c: Revert "i965/vec4/nir: vec4 also needs to remap vs attributes" Do not perform a remap in vec4 backend. Rather, do...Juan A. Suárez13/01/2017

This patch simplifies x11_surface_get_formats(). It is actually just a readability improvement over the patch I provided earlier this week (750d8cad72). Reviewed-by: Eric EngestromEduardo Lima28/10/2016
x11_surface_get_present_modes() is currently asserting that the number of elements in pPresentModeCount must be greater than or equal to the number of present modes available. This is buggy because pPresentModeCount elements are later copied from the...Eduardo Lima28/10/2016
