Kaleido 3D, from Digital Airways, is an advanced graphic rendering solution for mobile phones. Kaleido 3D enables 2G and 3G handsets manufacturers to create full 3D user interfaces quickly and cost effectively. Kaleido 3D, together with Kaleido Animator, facilitate the creation of animated backgrounds, 3D moving objects (buttons, indicators…), splash screens, wizards (help, notification of events…), dynamic menus, transition between contexts (sliding, fading in and out, torsion…), management of layers (alpha blending), etc.
Taking advantage of the OpenGL-ES standard, Kaleido 3D responds to handset manufacturers’ challenges in developing sophisticated 3D graphics for user interfaces and product positioning by providing a multi-platform UI framework and a library of pre-integrated customizable functions all aimed at simplifying the creation of such UIs. These functions can be used as is, or rapidly extended to create any sort of innovative animation. The solution takes full advantage of platform resources such as graphic accelerator, 2D/3D engines, as well as image codecs.
