GARMIN Adopts DiSTI’s GL Studio for High Fidelity Digital Clusters

GARMIN and DiSTI highlight the adoption of GL Studio for automotive digital clusters at CES 2019.

Las Vegas, NV (January 7, 2019) – The DiSTI Corporation, a leading provider of graphical user interface software to the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries announces that Garmin and DiSTI have partnered in the development of high-fidelity digital instrument clusters for automotive OEM applications. Garmin will utilize DiSTI’s GL Studio platform to enhance the development of 2D and 3D graphical interfaces for standalone instrument clusters.

“The flexible GL Studio development tools allow our developers to create rich graphical interfaces without sacrificing performance,” said Matt Munn, Managing Director Automotive OEM.

DiSTI’s GL Studio is a comprehensive UI development tool for seamlessly creating cross platform 2D and 3D user interface content. GL Studio streamlines UI asset creation to implementation readiness in one platform without compromise. By consuming industry standard file formats such as Photoshop and 3ds Max into the GL Studio Designer, the graphics artist drives the user experience with the UI designer-centric workflow significantly reducing the time to market.

“DiSTI is honored by Garmin’s adoption of our GL Studio UI tools,” said Christopher Giordano, Vice President UX/UI Technology “Rapid iteration workflow, high runtime performance and native safety critical capabilities are our sweet spots, and we are delighted to see Garmin taking full advantage of all three. Their management team, designers and engineers are highly skilled and have been great. We look forward to many more years of collaboration.”
