LinuxPR: SGI Digital Media Software Development Kit Now Available To Open Source Community

“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.
