  14. 14. Project Experience Examples I Graphics performance optimisation of a tablet of an Asian OEM. Description: Several weeks before production start of the customer's new tablet, there was a major problem with the device performance. We provided on-site support, resolved the major technical problems and significantly increased the system performance. Optimisations where done in the GPU drivers, in power management modules and in the OS. The product was launched in the scheduled time. Development of a Qt based SmartTV platform integrating a SurfaceFlinger graphics composition system for a European TV OEM. Description: We headed the development of a Qt based SmartTV platform. To support the legacy graphics libraries and integrate it with the new UI, we developed a SurfaceFlinger based graphics composer. This allowed the simultaneous composition of surfaces/windows from different graphics frameworks like Qt, Android, DirectFB and display it on the same screen. Using this innovative idea, the customer was able to leverage from the high level of maturity of SurfaceFlinger and from the availability of Android baseports on popular chipsets.
