CJK - Chinese Outline Solution
Mobile Labs help you become successful in the Chinese market!
v-rocs Outline CJK is an
outline font solution for rendering of Chinese glyphs that is
optimized for low-end to mid-range mobile phones.
The complete font that
currently covers all glyphs in GB18030-2000 (Mainland China:
Simplified and Traditional) is less than 1 megabyte, and the
code is very fast: 3 times faster than rendering a normal
OpenType font via FreeType.
v-rocs Outline CJK is a
complementing product to v-rocs Outline, so
that rendering of CJK scripts can be provided in a seamless and
efficient manner without any extra integration effort.
Glyphs are 1 pixel wide
independent of scaling and automatically hinted and with
compensation for colliding strokes (stain), providing very easy
to read glyphs.
Mobile Labs has ported
v-rocs Outline CJK to Google Android by replacing FreeType and
by combining with Google's PinYin solution, for testing and
demos. This integration can be provided to potential customers
for evaluation purposes.
Other CJK scripts, including
Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japanese and Korean, will be supported in the
future, using the same core technology.
Please note that v-rocs
Outline can also be used for rendering Chinese glyphs, then
using existing TrueType/OpenType fonts, yet not as efficient in
terms of memory use and performance.
