ITA Annual Meeting at GDC, UltraD Interview

There has been a lot of talk about open standards and what they mean.  The Khronos Group is the real deal when it comes to open standards development, and it’s thanks to their sponsorship that the alliance is hosting its next annual meeting at GDC 2015.

“The ITA is a unique forum for diverse companies to identify collaborative opportunities to accelerate the mainstream adoption of virtual and augmented reality. Consumer-ready VR and AR will require many interoperating standards, and Khronos looks forward to working with the ITA to help make that vision a reality.” – Neil Trevett, President, Khronos Group (makers of OpenGL).

The alliance has initiated open standards development, and we first announced this effort at CES 2015.  It’s very much a long-term effort, and we’ll talk about the alliance’s progress at GDC 2015 (offsite).

During the private portion of the meeting, we are also going to be talking about a new initiative designed to let content makers show off their work in retail stores across the US – perhaps internationally – at little to no cost.  We are discussing this during the private meeting portion because it will require some buy-in from the membership so we can have an effective follow-through.  We’re very excited about the potential of making this work and we hope to see you there.

A more complete announcement can be found at the ITA website.  Much more to come!

In the meantime, we have our interview with Stream Networks TV talking about their Ultra-D glasses-free technology at CES 2015.  Lots of fun!
