The Khronos Group was founded in January 2000 by a number of leading media-centric companies, including 3Dlabs, ATI, Discreet, Evans & Sutherland, Intel, NVIDIA, SGI and Sun Microsystems, dedicated to creating open standard APIs to enable the authoring and playback of rich media on a wide variety of platforms and devices.
The Khronos Group is a not for profit, member-funded consortium focused on the creation of royalty-free open standards for parallel computing, graphics and dynamic media on a wide variety of platforms and devices. All Khronos members are able to contribute to the development of Khronos API specifications, are empowered to vote at various stages before public deployment, and are able to accelerate the delivery of their cutting-edge 3D platforms and applications through early access to specification drafts and conformance tests.
Today the Khronos Group has roughly 100 member companies, over 30 adopters, and twenty-four conforming members. Members include Apple, Google, Intel, Motorola, Mozilla, Nokia, Samsung, Sony, and Oracle.
The groups Khronos manages includes OpenGL, OpenCL, OpenSl, and WebGL.
Neil Trevett is currently the President of the Khronos Group.
