American Megatrends Sponsors Successful Spring 2019 UEFI Plugfest in Bellevue, Washington

Wednesday: May 8, 2019

NORCROSS, GEORGIA - American Megatrends, International LLC (AMI), a global leader in BIOS, BMC and remote management tools and utilities, is pleased to report its successful attendance and co-sponsorship of the recent Spring 2019 UEFI Plugfest, held in Bellevue, Washington last month.

The semiannual UEFI Seminar and Plugfest events bring together leading experts and introduces the latest UEFI firmware advancements. They also represent an invaluable opportunity to meet with industry colleagues, test the latest platforms, devices and firmware, as well as learn about the newest UEFI enhancements.

During the latest Plugfest, AMI presented a track focused on the use of capsules for Firmware Configuration Update. While capsules have been used by UEFI for updating device firmware for several years, UEFI version 2.8 introduced a new feature where the firmware exposes Human Interface Infrastructure (HII) configuration information to the operating system. The operating system, or additional tools, can then in turn provide a capsule back to the firmware to update HII configuration settings. The presentation from AMI encompassed an overview of this new feature in UEFI v2.8 and explored real world use cases of the technology.
