Create brilliant HMIs

One tool, multiple applications...

CGI Studio

CGI Studio is a scalable and hardware independent HMI and GUI design software. The open architecture allows deep integration and automatization into your company’s workflow. All this is accomplished with one tool while still retaining the necessities of fast bootup time, small footprints and the critical automotive standards and regulations of ASIL, MISRA and SPICE. The software enables creation of brilliant and customizable HMIs of all kinds for the automotive area and beyond.

Multiple GUI applications

Instrument Clusters

CGI Studio allows you to develop unique 2D/3D automotive clusters directly to your hardware of choice and into the market – as fast as possible.

IVI and rear seat entertainment

Infotainment systems (IVI), rear seat entertainment and much more – CGI Studio is the one-stop solution for all of your HMI ideas.

Head-up displays

With built-in warping and low latency of Candera Render Engine, CGI Studio is the perfect tool for dynamic applications like AR HuDs.

Home appliances

Create brilliant GUIs for the next generation of home appliances like induction stoves, refrigerators or innovative washing machines.

Scene Composer

Scene Composer is the central tool in the CGI Studio environment and is used to import graphical artwork from designers, create sceneries as they appear on the target system, combine sceneries with business logic, and finally to export content for the target hardware. The Scene Composer is capable to handle 2D and 3D content at ease and allows easy creation of modern HMIs including stunning animations.

Platform Support

Native support for all relevant automotive platforms



Scalable GUI from low-end 2D up to highly advanced 3D graphics rendering



Full support for OpenGL ES 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0 including extensions


Seamless automotive workflow from design to target


Highly optimized for runtime and memory performance


Integrated functional safety (ISO 26262)



Proven in many projects for
leading OEM and TIER1 customers


Very efficient variant handling for large-scale projects with a lot of different car types
