The Core Graphics project seeks to integrate a variety of commercially released and experimental QSS proprietary, open source and third party technologies in order to deliver a broad range of graphics capabilities to embedded developers. In order to develop, use and ship devices that offer such functionality it is necessary to understand the various technology and content stakeholders and how to obtain the requisite intellectual property license rights. This can be a complicated picture. It will depend on a number of factors, including the device’s capabilities, its intended use(s), and the markets in which the device is to be manufactured, distributed and sold.
