Testimonials for SVG 1.2 Tiny Recommendation

These testimonials are in support of the publication of the W3C Recommendation Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Tiny 1.2 Specification.


IKIVO is proud to have taken part in re-enforcing W3C's commitment to open graphics communication through the SVG 1.2 Tiny specification. The standardization of SVG mobile profiles continues to speed up the acceptance of SVG as a basis for visual mobile communication. SVG 1.2 Tiny helps enable a richer more dynamic User Experience for an increasingly diverse range of mobile devices. We are particularly encouraged by the SVG based application capabilities, like Mobile TV, made possible with the addition to the specification of audio, video and scripting features. The IKIVO Enrich family of products, including the Enrich Player and Enrich Tools, provide SVG mobile-compliant software solutions for rich SVG content for mass-market mobile phones and other devices. With a proven track record from numerous RTOS and Symbian-based platforms, IKIVO Enrich requires a minimum of memory and CPU, and is easily integrated.

Motorola is using SVG Tiny 1.2 in a XML-based UI framework to build many of the experiences in its latest phones, including the popular ROKR E8. SVG and CSS empower Motorola’s designers to completely change the look and feel of the user interface without having to request software changes. SVG enables designers to build user interfaces that can be used in all parts of the world with a variety of languages. We are excited that the SVG Tiny 1.2 spec has made it to Proposed Recommendation.

Opera Software, steadfast supporter of open web standards, is thrilled to see SVG 1.2 Tiny become a W3C Recommendation. We welcome the internationalization work done by the SVG WG in collaboration with the i18n and CSS Working Groups to make SVG content work better in right-to-left script systems, such as Arabic and Hebrew. Opera Software's acclaimed SVG engine is currently being shipped in Opera products for mobiles, desktops and embedded systems worldwide. With a focus of becoming better integrated with other W3C web technologies, such as WAI-ARIA, RDFa and others, we think that the new SVG 1.2 Tiny specification will meet market requirements as well as provide users with an accessible, visually exciting and interactive experience on any device.

Quickoffice has been heavily involved in the ratification process for SVG 1.2 and we're extremely excited to have worked so closely with the W3C in the undertaking of standardizing SVG 1.2 Tiny. This standard is a critical part of our BitFlash 6.7 Rich Media Engine and radically transforms mobile 2D viewing. We're looking forward to continually support the W3C in future standards, bringing this cutting edge technology to our customers.
