"SGI, a leading provider of solutions for the digital media industry, today announced that it will soon release the source code for its SGI digital media software development kit (dmSDK) for the Linux operating environment. The dmSDK toolkit shortens the time required to create digital media applications across the SGI product line by allowing SGI software partners to write to a single application programming interface (API)."

"dmSDK provides developers with the first professional, comprehensive digital media API for Linux, making the toolkit a key enabler to allow people in the digital media industry to use this increasingly popular OS. Equally important, the cross-platform capability of dmSDK creates an easy bridge for current SGI developers wanting to leverage their IRIX operating system software development to quickly bring Linux products to market."

"The dual-platform capability of dmSDK is a very positive step toward our ability to develop applications that are IRIX and Linux cross-platform capable," said Michael Hughes, vice president of Product Development, Discreet."
