Toshiba Information Systems (JAPAN) initiates Strategic Partnership with DiSTI Corporation in Japan

Orlando, FL (February 20, 2019) – The DiSTI Corporation, a leading provider of graphical user interface software, and Toshiba Information Systems (JAPAN), provider of advanced embedded solutions, including automotive, today announced their collaboration.

DiSTI’s GL Studio is a comprehensive UI development tool for seamlessly creating cross-platform 2D and 3D user interface content without sacrificing the performance, safety, and reliability required of the embedded system. GL Studio streamlines UI asset creation through implementation readiness in one platform without compromising the original designer’s vision. By consuming industry standards file formats such as Photoshop and 3D Studio Max, the graphic artist drives the user experience while the implementation engineers deploy the embedded system with the UX/UI workflow. GL Studio enables development efficiency reducing the time to market and cost.

The GL Studio runtime library has been developed for functional safety certification to DO-178 up to level A for aviation, and has also been pre-certified to ISO 26262 up to ASIL D in automotive, as well as IEC 62304 for Class II medical. GL Studio has proven itself safe and highly reliable.

“Japan is a highly skilled and technical market for embedded technology, and automotive which is a perfect fit for our award-winning GL Studio”, said Christopher Giordano, Vice President of UX/UI Technology at the DiSTI Corporation. “As this collaboration continues to grow DiSTI is honored to be working in close cooperation with such a prestigious company as Toshiba Information Systems (JAPAN) to support the local Japan market.”

The GL Studio design tool supports a series of rapid iteration development processes from product concept to prototype and mass production. The highly functional and flexible WYSIWYG UI development environment promotes cooperation between UI designers and programmers, improving development efficiency to a maximum, making it possible to shorten the time to market.

* Importers that support industry-standard file formats such as Photoshop and 3ds Max
* Native C++ code generators that eliminates the need to write low-level graphical code
* State machine function that enables implementing UI control by drag-and-drop elements
* Settings and tools that can easily customized development workflow, including extensible third-party integration and cross-platform build procedures for One Touch Deployment
