Adobe Systems Incorporated and Intel Corporation have announced plans to collaborate on the development to port and optimize Adobe Flash technology for the Intel Media Processor CE 3100.
The companies expected to provide consumers with seamless Web-based and video viewing experiences through Intel-based cable set-top boxes, Blu-ray Disc players, digital TVs and retail connected AV devices.
The high-definition capabilities of the Adobe Flash Platform, together with the Intel Media Processor CE 3100, the first in a new family of purpose-built Intel System on Chips (SoCs) for Consumer Electronics (CE) devices, creates an entertainment platform capable of delivering rich Web content and Adobe Flash based applications to an array of Internet-connected CE devices.
Intel plans to ship the first CE3100 with support for an optimized implementation of Adobe Flash Lite before mid-2009.
Both companies are founding members of the Open Screen Project. Announced in May 2008, the Open Screen Project is designed to enable a consistent runtime environment across screens. The initiative has 20 major industry partners and is dedicated to enable Web content, standalone applications and full Web browsing across televisions, set-top boxes, mobile devices and other consumer electronics that take advantage of Adobe AIR and Adobe Flash capabilities.
Both companies are also working on bringing an optimized implementation of Adobe AIR technology to Intelís digital home platform in the future.
