Adobe Flash Platform to spread across desktops and mobile devices
Posted on 5-Oct-2009 20:30. | Tags Filed under: News.



Adobe Systems Incorporated have announced further advancements to the Adobe Flash Platform, by unveiling Flash Player 10.1, enabling rich Web content, video and applications to reach more users across a broader set of devices.

In addition, Adobe announced new HTTP streaming technology for video delivered on the Flash Platform, demonstrated upcoming features of Adobe AIR 2 software, released a second beta of Adobe Flash Builder and Flash Catalyst software, and made available new Adobe Flash Platform Services for collaboration.

“We’re excited to be launching such a broad spectrum of advancements to the Flash Platform at Adobe MAX 2009,” said Kevin Lynch, chief technology officer at Adobe. “By delivering rapid innovation across tools, runtimes, services and servers, we are enabling the large and vibrant ecosystem of designers and developers to drive the Web forward with rich content and applications.”

Flash Player 10.1 provides a consistent runtime across desktops and mobile devices and is supported by close to 50 participants in the Open Screen Project. Flash Player 10.1 support is expected to be available for a series of mobile platforms including Google Android, Blackberry, Symbian, Palm webOS and Windows Mobile.

The browser-based runtime leverages the power of the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) for accelerated video and graphics while conserving battery life and minimizing resource utilization. New mobile-ready features that take advantage of native device capabilities include support for multi-touch, gestures, mobile input models, accelerometer and screen orientation bringing unprecedented creative control and expressiveness to the mobile browsing experience.

Adobe AIR 1.0, the Flash Platform runtime for delivering Web applications outside the browser, has significantly expanded its penetration with over 200 million installs since its release last year. Adobe AIR 2, previewed today at MAX 2009 and available in beta later this year, will allow for entirely new applications in the desktop context, providing developers with more features to take advantage of desktop operating systems, such as enhanced support for mass storage devices, peer to peer networking and UDP networking.

Adobe has also unveiled plans to add new protocol support for media delivery with HTTP streaming on the Flash Platform, including integration of content protection powered by Flash Access 2.0 software. Code-named Zeri, the HTTP technologies will be an open format based on industry standards and will provide content publishers, distributors and partners the tools they need to utilize HTTP infrastructures for high-quality media delivery in Flash Player 10.1 and AIR 2 both on desktops and devices.

Zeri will support all available media codecs supported today and will continue to support high quality live and recorded media with adaptive bit-rate and network DVR support to the Flash player. With Project Zeri and Flash Media Server 3.5, the Flash Platform delivers the next generation of high quality media experiences at scale.
