Candera Integrates Monotype’s iType® Across CGI Studio
Flexible Font Rendering Solution Delivers Improved Performance and Flexibility for Pin-Sharp HMIs.
Linz/Austria, May 2020 — Candera GmbH in Linz, Austria, is excited to announce that it is enhancing its CGI Studio through an integration with Monotype, the world’s largest type foundry.
CGI Studio customers will have access to Monotype’s premium font rendering engine, iType®. Optimized for efficiency and speed across numerous display environments, iType preserves clarity and legibility for on-screen characters. In addition to the embedded solution, customers will receive access to Monotype’s WorldType® ShaperTM and global customer support network.
Flexible Font Rendering Solution Delivers Improved Performance and Flexibility for Pin-Sharp HMIs
Based on our 20 years of experience in the embedded software development together with our broad customer base we have created a mature feature-rich and customizable product. In fact, CGI Studio today covers all aspects of automotive GUI development and beyond. Furthermore, we’re closely working together with our customers and industry partners to provide solutions for present and future HMI needs.
High- quality fonts for brands and user interface (UI) comprise one element of Human Machine Interfaces (HMI). However, rendering speed is an equally critical component of integrating fonts in HMIs. While free font rendering engines are a cost-effective option for simple and basic HMI, a more professional and performant tool is required for sophisticated and complex HMI solutions, like those used across the automotive and industrial sectors. Monotype’s iType engine meets and exceeds such high standards for display, even in the smallest, most memory-constrained devices, and also delivers additional benefits such as: vast device compatibility; reduced font data, file size and bandwidth; and efficient and simplified OEM (original equipment manufacturer) integration.
To further meet the needs of its multilingual customers, Candera will also begin offering Monotype’s WorldType Shaper, which helps eliminate language barriers and provide intelligent character shaping and bi-directional reordering for non-Latin scripts. Apart from enabling customers to communicate across devices in their native language, WorldType prioritizes device memory and speed to power the most pristine and seamless user experience.
Specialized Customer Support Worldwide
As a complement to iType and WorldType, CGI Studio customers now have access to Monotype’s professional and reliable customer support team, which includes a robust stable of font specialists and engineers. Whereas alternative solutions on the market provide little to no technical support, Monotype has assigned a dedicated team to ensuring continued performance and excellence across its solutions.
