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.

Just yesterday, Vulkan 1.0.54 was released. Among other things, it includes the specification for a new extension, VK_KHR_16bit_storage. And just yesterday, we sent to mesa-dev the implementation of this extension for Intel gen8+ GPUs, that is the outcome...
Some time ago I promised to write a bit more about how shadow mapping works. It has taken me a while to bring myself to actually deliver on that front, but I have finally decided to put together some posts … Continue reading →
We, at Igalia, have been involved in enabling ARB_gpu_shader_fp64 extension to different Intel generations: first Broadwell and later, then Haswell. Now IvyBridge support is finished and landed Mesa’s master branch. This feature was the last one to...

Since beginning last year, our team at Igalia has been involved in enabling ARB_gpu_shader_fp64 extension to different Intel generations: first Broadwell and later, then Haswell, now IvyBridge (still under review); so working on supporting Vulkan’s...
SAMPLES and NUM_SAMPLE_COUNTS queries accept internalformats which are defined as color-, depth- or stencil-renderable. RGB9_E5 is marked as non color-renderable in OpenGL 4.6, however if the EXT_texture_shared_exponent extension is exposed it must be...Antía Puentes20/02/2018

If extensions GL_KHR_texture_compression_astc_hdr or GL_KHR_texture_compression_astc_sliced_3d are implemented then ASTC format are supported in CompressedTex*Îmage3D. Fixes KHR-GLES2.texture_3d.* with this format. CC: Eric Anholt Reviewed-by: Eric...Juan A. Suárez05/02/2018
Although seems somewhat too specific, with mesa HEAD at: 766589d89a211e67f313e8cb38f2d05b09975f96 this test crashes, so it would be good to include a test for this. v2: Added comments that clarify the array index used (Fabian) Reviewed-by: Fabian BielerAlejandro Piñeiro24/01/2018
vk_error() is a macro that calls __vk_errorf() with instance == NULL. Then, __vk_errorf() passes a pointer to instance->debug_report_callbacks to vk_debug_error(), which segfaults as this pointer is invalid but not NULL. Fixes: e5b1bd6ab8 "vulkan:...Samuel Iglesias19/01/2018
