What makes Storyboard different from other solutions?
There are lots of great choices out there. Here's what we believe makes us the best choice.
Adobe Flash is effective for graphical displays on the desktop because that's what it was designed for. It wasn't designed for the performance constraints of an embedded platform. Storyboard was architected exclusively for embedded systems, which have the unique challenges of bringing a rich user interface experience to resource-constrained embedded devices.
Microsoft Silverlight is effective for embedded systems on the Microsoft Windows platform. Most manufacturers don't want to handcuff themselves to one platform though.
Flash and Silverlight only scale down so far, basically requiring an embedded device that has a lot of horsepower, so neither are suitable for devices below certain price points.
Are other solutions hardware- and OS-agnostic? Storyboard runs on Windows, Windows CE, Linux, Linux/X11, MAC OS X, Symbian S60—and supports any hardware that your OS supports.
Bottom line: Choosing the right UI development suite for your product roadmap will deliver long-term competitive advantage.
