About Screen

Screen Graphics Subsystem is a compositing windowing system that can composite graphics from several different rendering technologies.

Screen allows developers to create specific vertical applications using industry-standard tools in a UI development environment. UI technologies that Screen can combine include HTML5, Elektrobit GUIDE, Crank Storyboard, Qt, and native (e.g., OpenGL ES) code.

Figure 1. Screen

Screen enables developers to create separate windows for the output of each rendering technology (e.g., HTML5, Qt, Video, or OpenGL ES) so that each window can be transformed (e.g., scaling, translation, rotation, alpha blending, etc.) to build the final scene for display.
