"SGI... has announced that the source code for its digital media software development kit (dmSDK) for the Linux operating environment is now available to the open source community. 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). The dmSDK source code is now available for download from SGI's open source developer Web site at: www.sgi.com/developers/oss/"

"dmSDK provides Linux developers with a proven, cross-platform digital media API and is a key enabler allowing digital media developers to deliver applications for this increasing popular operating system. The cross-platform capability of dmSDK creates an easy bridge for current SGI developers wanting to leverage their IRIX operating system software development to bring Linux products to market quickly."

"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 Pierre Bouchard, director of Product Development, Discreet.
