Lineo has announced a partnership with the Tao Group to enable Lineo to include high-performance, compact embedded Java solutions for multimedia platforms within their Embedix SDK developer tools.

Embedded features will include 2D and 3D graphics, fonts, and streaming video and audio in devices such as smart phones, set tops, cameras and web pads. According to Lineo, the partnership will also include a strong emphasis on enabling manufacturers to differentiate by the incorporation of their own technologies on to the platform and the provision of on-screen branding.

The partnership between Lineo and Tao will integrate Lineo's engineering, support, sales and embedded Linux expertise with the Tao 'intent' software platform. The 'intent' software platform is incorporated into several products to be released worldwide in 2001.
