New and Improved: Altia Design 9.2, PhotoProto 2.0 and FlowProto 1.5

Altia rolled out Altia Design 9.2 DeepScreen 6.0, PhotoProto 2.0 and FlowProto 1.5 HMI engineering tools for embedded systems. The tools enable engineers to build user interface models. Altia Design 9.2 DeepScreen 6.0 now supports targets like OpenGL ES 2.x, OpenVG and Linux Framebuffer. FlowProto 1.5 pulls logic and structure out of Microsoft Visio and converts it to XML. PhotoProto 2.0 now features enhanced exporting options, integration capabilities with other tools and improved animation capabilities.
