Bitstream integrates Font Fusion with Symbian OS
Posted on 2-Aug-2005 11:23. | Tags Filed under: News.



Bitstream Inc. has integrated Font Fusion 3.0, the company's small font rasterizing engine with Symbian OS, an operating system used in some popular smartphones by Nokia, Sony Ericsson and other brands.

Font Fusion is engineered for small embedded systems. The source code can be compiled in as little as 36 KB. Using Font Fusion, 100 MIPS CPUs can render between 2,400 to 3,300 characters per second.

According to the company, Bitstream's Font Fusion renders high-quality characters in any format, at any resolution, on any platform or device. Font Fusion supports all international languages. In addition to bitmaps, Font Fusion can render scalable outline and stroke-based characters.

"Symbian OS is the leading development platform for data-enabled mobile phones and smartphones worldwide. Now hardware manufacturers and software developers can expand their font technology solutions and provide their customers with high-quality, scalable text," said Anna Chagnon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bitstream Inc. "Scalable font rendering adds significant value to mobile and smart phones. Font Fusion, our premier font rendering engine, delivers outstanding scalable technology in a very small footprint. Bitstream's Font Fusion will play a key role in delivering high-quality text display on smartphones. We are pleased to be working with Symbian in this high-growth market segment."

Available as an SDK (Software Developers' Kit), Font Fusion renders a wide variety of industry-standard and compact font formats: OpenType, TrueType, Type 1, CFF/Type2, T2K Latin, T2K Asian, TrueDoc PFR (portable font resource), Bitstream Speedo, and Font Fusion stroke (FFS) format, as well as embedded bitmaps.

Developers can also license a number of different suites of fonts, including delta-hinted screen fonts, stroke-based Asian fonts, the Tiresias Screenfont, the CCTV Font Set, and the TV Font Pack.
