In this presentation, we present how open source technologies, DirectFB and ilixi compositor, can be used to build a new application management system for intuitive and efficient application management for IVI. DirectFB is well-known graphics middleware that can support multiple display layers, GPU accelerations with full software fallbacks. ilixi compositor is an application/window manager that compose windows of multiple DIrectFB  applications. By using ilixi compositor multiple full-screen apps can run simultaneously, and user can switch applications by looking at their thumbnails. Applications don't need to be aware of ilixi compositor, and therefore Qt apps can also be managed without any modifications. The audiences will see technical details for this architecture. A demo running on embedded platform will also be shown. Engineering background recommended but not required.
