How CORA Could Reimagine Computing

The term Create Once Reach All (CORA) refers to methods and frameworks that deliver consistent high-end user experiences on diversely powered client devices.  They achieve this by leveraging the combined ecosystems of client devices, cloud services, content development, and broadband infrastructure.  The desired outcomes are for content to run equally well on multiple client device solutions by supplementing their capabilities with cloud computing, and to ease the process for application makers to support cross-platform.

Why CORA Approaches Matter to Content & Application Makers

GROW
the Audience

Grow Audience Size

CORA could grow market sizes because:

  • Cloud-enhanced devices can do more.
  • Reduced up-front costs for users to take advantage.
  • Lower cost + better products = bigger audience!

DO
More

Do More

CORA approaches could enable:

  • Higher quality graphics and processor-intensive applications.
  • Maximized performance in all form factors.
  • Immediate user-wide compute technology upgrades.

STREAMLINE
Development

Streamline Content Development

CORA could simplify content development by:

  • Distributing compute resources to a wider audience.
  • Clearing bottlenecks and horsepower restrictions
  • Reducing the amount of optimization needed between client devices.

  • PC is always ahead of the pack.
  • Console is 3-5 years behind PC.
  • Mobile is 10 years behind PC.

With a CORA framework, all platforms are equally powered!

Project CORA Logo

CORA approaches are entering their next generation of development.  Project CORA (Create Once Reach All) is TIFCA’s CORA 2.0 proposal to enable a single piece of content to run on diversely powered client devices with a consistent high-end user experience.  Project CORA aims to enable this vision by taking advantage of the capabilities of each client device, and leveraging a client, cloud, and hybrid client-cloud workload balanced compute ecosystem framework.

This bridge is a dynamic model that changes between:

  • Localized compute at the client device level
  • Remote computing where the content is streamed 100% from the cloud
  • Hybrid where client and cloud share a threshold of processing responsibilities

With gaming as Project CORA’s first use case to examine, TIFCA aims to enhance the bridge between client and cloud so that a game is playable on a wide market of devices while delivering a consistently premium user experience.  TIFCA is inviting industry leaders, architects, and engineers to collaborate on this effort.
