"Century Software Embedded Technologies, a leading developer of applications technologies for embedded Linux, today announced the port of its ViewML Internet Browser and core multimedia technologies to the Applied Data Systems Graphics Client platform. Applied Data Systems (ADS), a leading developer of application-ready embedded systems, manufactures the Graphics Client, a popular StrongARM SA-1110 based single board computer system, which features a large flatpanel color display for use in embedded applications. These technologies will be shown at next week's Linux Expo Show in ADS's booth #1214."

"The availability of Century Software's high-quality embedded web browser and multimedia solutions allows the ADS Graphics Client to be used in an increasing number of embedded Linux applications, including those requiring audio and video output, as well as server-based interactive applications," said Robert Olsen, President and CEO of Applied Data Systems. Using the large 640 x 480 full color display and touchpanel, OEMs can now offer connectivity with web-based services and interaction with other systems. MPEG-1 video and MP3 audio data can be streamed from the Internet, played from local flash RAM, and controlled in a programmed manner using Century Software's embedded multimedia technologies."

"The ViewML Browser is a small memory footprint, high-quality web browser targeting the needs of the rapidly growing embedded Linux market. ViewML provides HTML v3.2 display in only 800k ROM and 2Mb RAM, and is the first open source, royalty free web browser specifically targeted towards the embedded Linux market. "We're very pleased to be making available our browser and multimedia technologies on the ADS platform, since the Graphics Client is ideally situated to capitalize on the rapidly growing demand for lower-cost, high-quality single board embedded systems requiring easily readable flatpanel displays," said Gregory Haerr, CEO of Century Software."
