Our new Edge360™ Technology brings advanced textual effects to 2D and 3D user interfaces, applications and games. For example, text can be zoomed in and out very quickly without having to re-render the text at the end of the zoom process. Text can be rotated in three dimensions – all while retaining clarity throughout the process.

Edge360 works with iType® 5.0 on devices equipped with OpenGL® ES-based hardware acceleration technology, such as smartphones and tablets. With Edge360, which uses patented rendering techniques of our Edge™ Technology, you’re able to integrate effects that can be handled in the GPU (graphics processor unit), which frees the main processor to complete other tasks. Text effects include the ability to:

  • Zoom in and out
  • Rotate
  • Apply outline effects such as “glow”
  • Fine-tune rendered text output to meet specific device characteristics

To view video in HD, select a higher playback setting in the player window.

Contact us to learn more about Edge360 and how it can help you bring text to a whole new level of interactivity and engagement.
