An open source solution to activate type across embedded environments
M-Kit™ modules deliver font rendering IP technology for any open source environment that uses FreeType libraries – including Android devices – and the popular text shaping tool Harfbuzz.
Deliver crisp, dynamic text and anti-aliasing with our edge-tuning, hinting and grayscale rendering technology in 2D and 3D environments — and enhance responsiveness to viewing conditions — in real time.
Make your on-screen type extraordinarily efficient by linking a font into several sets and only loading data once — whether in multiple languages, regions, or scale.
Monotype’s in-house embedded type expertise offers optimal rasterization parameters
Minimal storage and power use help you keep a small footprint and low overhead, even in the smallest, most memory-constrained devices
M–Kit’s support for open source libraries expands integration even further, to popular text shaping tool HarfBuzz
Put an end to multiple SKUs for the same product, even in multiple languages or versions. Build once, and M–Kit handles variations in type
M–Kit allows your UI to stay true to your intended vision, keeping your brand intact on billions of devices and displays
Tight appearance handling and pin-sharp text give both design engineers and brands more control over how text looks, even in suboptimal conditions, giving end-users the best possible UX experience
Deliver a compelling, on-brand user interface that includes global font support, and reach a cross-platform, worldwide audience with a single application
Subsequent releases (or after-market inventory) won’t require new development or a redesign to display new content. Create your text once, and you’re good to go-to-market
