Metagraphics MetaWINDOW is a high performance graphics
programming toolkit that combines speed, functionality, quality and support
into an integrated graphics development system.
Designed for developers programming OEM, embedded and
real-time applications, MetaWINDOW provides a powerful suite of drawing
functions, top-rated performance, and direct runtime
support for virtually every popular graphics card and chipset available.
MetaWINDOW turns the promise and power of computer graphics into reality.
MetaWINDOW provides all the capabilities of low level compiler
graphic libraries, plus much, much more! Off-screen memory
bitmaps, hardcopy output, keyboard and mouse event
services, automatic cursor tracking and flexible bitmap
text are basic features of MetaWINDOW. MetaWINDOW also
includes scalable vector text, hit detection,
rounded-corner rectangles, dynamic font facing, marker

style drawing pens, international fonts, plus even more.
Benchmarked as one the fastest PC graphics toolkit in the world,
MetaWINDOW defines the meaning of high performance
graphics. Optimized entirely in assembly language for
fast, tight code, MetaWINDOW executes over 2 to 8 times
faster than other graphic libraries.
MetaWINDOW provides uncompromising pixel perfect drawing
quality and accuracy, fully retraceable drawing and
clipping of all graphic elements and text, plus perfect
alignment and edge meshing of all objects.
MetaWINDOW has been honored with PC Tech Journal's
Product of the Month award for
excellance in design, and is one of the most powerful
graphic programming tools available for application
MetaWINDOW provides total direct support for virtually every mode of
HGA, CGA, EGA, VGA and SuperVGA available - up to
1280x1024 - monochrome, 16-color and 256-color. Over 300+
graphic cards and display modes are supported directly
by MetaWINDOW. MetaWINDOW tools also support full VESA
standards, insuring compatibility with future graphics
technology. Add-on companion products, MetACCEL
and MetHICOLOR, expand support even further for
hardware accelerated SuperVGA's, such as from Diamond
Multimedia and ATI, plus 16 bit per pixel
high-color SuperVGA's with up to 65,536
