PC-grade sophistication and high-speed rendering on embedded devices
DMP MAESTRO technology is an advanced rendering extension that implements various modeled CG algorithms in hardware. DMP MAESTRO technology allows beautiful graphics and reduced content size plus memory bandwidth in addition to reduced power consumption at the system level.
Tools for efficient content creation
DMP provides PICA emulators for PC environments plus “ShaderBox®” tool that is an authoring support tool for DMP extensions, and content execution environments (engines). All these tools support the industry standard COLLADA specification, allowing for seamless workflow from major CG tools as well as efficient and low-cost production of contents that make full use of DMP extensions.
