Hyperion Entertainment brings 3D graphics to PDA's
Hyperion Entertainment is very pleased to announce that it has finalised an initial version of its "Warp3D" technology, a mature, small foot-print, feature-rich yet very fast 3D solution for ElateTM/ Amiga DETM based devices.

Warp3D allows content-creators to effortlessly deploy 3D graphics on low-end devices such as PDA's, web-tablets and 3G phones and is the product of years of development in response to concrete performance challenges and 3D technology.

Hyperion intends to showcase the Warp3D technology by producing several PDA oriented games.

"A lot of the PDA content we are seeing now is a throw-back to the earlier days of entertainment software and whilst this is not necessarily a bad thing, we do believe that users would like to enjoy sophisticated 3D content on these devices as well. Our contract-work for LithTech Inc. also means we were able to incorporate extensive research and expertise in the field of software rendering which resulted in one of the fastest software renderers in the industry - the only viable solution on a non 3D-accelerated PDA. Add to that a highly optimised subset of OpenGL which is nonetheless capable of running industry-standard 3D engines like Quake IITM and LithTechTM and you have a piece of very compelling technology indeed."

Warp3D was already successfully field-tested on the SH3 powered version of Sharp's Zaurus PDA and is due for imminent release.

The technology will remain in continuous development and will be licensed to interested parties.
