Creating multimedia content for the Blackberry platform
A subsidiary of Research In Motion (RIM), Plazmic, will introduce the Plazmic Content Developer's Kit v.3.7 for the BlackBerry wireless platform. The Plazmic Content Developer's Kit will provide a suite of tools that allow content developers to create interactive and animated content to enhance applications for BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds. The company will be showing the new tool during the CTIA Wireless 2004 show in Atlanta.

"The Plazmic Content Developer's Kit for BlackBerry will provide developers with the ability to create rich and interactive graphics," said Julian Paas, Director, Content Planning at Plazmic. "With the Plazmic Content Developer's Kit, developers will be provided with the powerful tools needed for creating rich, browser-based content to enhance their applications for BlackBerry."

The Plazmic Content Developer's Kit for BlackBerry will include a fully integrated content development environment and advanced simulation tools that significantly ease the content creation process for RIM's award-winning BlackBerry platform. Developers, graphic artists, and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) will be able to use this suite of tools to simplify the authoring of rich wireless content and web-based applications that leverage the high-resolution screens of color BlackBerry handhelds.

The Plazmic Content Developer's Kit will generate content in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), the W3C XML-based standard for rich media content. Additional features of the Plazmic Content Developer's Kit for BlackBerry will include:

  • Composer, a graphical authoring tool for SVG content
  • SWF Conversion Utility, transcoder for Macromedia Flash (SWF) files into SVG
  • Media Engine Simulator, provides testing and debugging features for animated content
  • BlackBerry Handheld Simulator, featuring a full copy of the BlackBerry Java Virtual Machine, allowing developers to test and monitor the performance of their content
  • SVG Transcoding Utility, a utility for transcoding SVG into a format optimized for delivery and use on wireless devices

    The Plazmic Content Developer's kit for BlackBerry is expected to be available in April free of charge to registered developers, graphic artists, enterprise customers and ISV's.
