Adobe to open flash platform messaging protocol

By : |January 22, 2009 0

NEW DELHI, INDIA: Adobe Systems Incorporated, a provider in technology and software solutions announced the plans to publish the Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) specification, which is designed for high-performance transmission of audio, video, and data between Adobe Flash Platform technologies.

Providing developers and companies open and free access to RTMP is the latest advancement of the Open Screen Project, said a press release.

The initiative would enable the delivery of rich multi-screen experiences built on a consistent runtime environment for Web browsing and standalone applications across personal computers, mobile devices, and consumer electronics, the release added.

“With the RTMP specification, developers and companies will be able to provide users with optimized audio, video and data streaming, no matter what kind of device the user is on or where the content is coming from,” said Kevin Lynch, CTO, Adobe.

Developers and companies will have free and open access to the documented RTMP specification to help enable unparalleled delivery of video, audio and data in the open AMF, SWF, FLV and F4V formats compatible with Adobe Flash Player, the release added.

For the customers who want to protect their content, the open RTMP specification will not include Adobe’s unique secure RTMP measures, nor will the license that accompanies the specification allow developers to circumvent such measures. However, developers will be free to use their own technological measures to secure content, Adobe said.

The RTMP specification is expected to be posted on the Adobe Developer Connection in the first half of 2009.

The Open Screen Project is an initiative with 20 major industry partners who are working together to provide a consistent runtime environment for Web browsing and standalone applications, taking advantage of Adobe Flash.

Adobe system had also recently launched the eAdobe Technical Communication Suite 2 and Adobe eLearning Suite.

Technical Communication Suite 2 is an upgrade of its solution for authoring, reviewing, managing, and publishing rich technical information and training content across multiple channels.

The eLearning suite is a new content-authoring solution for learning professionals, educators and trainers to create rich learning experiences that can be delivered via the Web, desktop, mobile devices and learning management systems.
