Khronos Selects Hooked for OpenGL® ES 2.0 Conformance Tests

Hooked to define conformance standards for the embedded graphics industry

Los Altos Hills, CA – March 6, 2006, For immediate release:

Hooked Wireless, Inc., and the Khronos Group announced today that Hooked will write the conformance tests for OpenGL ES 2.0, in consultation with Khronos and the working group for the OpenGL ES standard. The tests are slated for release in mid-summer, 2006.

"We're extremely pleased to be given the opportunity to work on this project, and to be approved by the working group", says Mike Bruno, CEO of Hooked. "With OpenGL ES almost universally accepted as the API for 3D graphics on cell phones, and with phone handsets so dominant in mobile and embedded electronics, these tests will set the driver conformance bar for most of the embedded graphics industry.

Hooked Wireless is dedicated to the production of carrier-grade technology for the software stack of cell phones, mp3-players and other handheld devices. It was formed by industry veterans John Airey and Mike Bruno in September of 2004

The Khronos Group is a member-funded industry consortium focused on the creation of open standards to enable the authoring and acceleration of dynamic media on a wide variety of platforms and devices. All Khronos members are able to contribute to the development of Khronos specifications, are empowered to vote at various stages before public deployment, and are able to accelerate the delivery of their cutting-edge media platforms and applications through early access to specification drafts and conformance tests.
