Display PostScript (or DPS ) is a graphical user interface (GUI) system for computers which uses the PostScript (PS) imaging model and language (originally developed for computer printing ) to generate on-screen graphics. To the basic PS system, DPS adds a number of features intended to ease working with bitmapped displays and improve performance of some common tasks. Early versions of PostScript display systems were developed at Adobe Systems .
The NeXTcube was a high-end workstation computer developed, manufactured and sold by NeXT from 1990 until 1993. It superseded the original NeXT Computer workstation and was housed in a similar cube-shaped magnesium enclosure. The workstation ran the NeXTSTEP operating system .
IRIX is a computer operating system developed by Silicon Graphics, Inc. (SGI) to run natively on their MIPS architecture workstations and servers.
OpenGL ( Open G raphics L ibrary) [ 3 ] is a cross-language , multi-platform API for rendering 2D and 3D computer graphics . The API is typically used to interact with a GPU , to achieve hardware-accelerated rendering. OpenGL was developed by Silicon Graphics Inc. in 1992 [ 4 ] and is widely used in CAD , virtual reality , scientific visualization, information visualization, flight simulation , and video games .
