Adobe Unveils Adobe Flash Access 2.0
Adobe Systems announced Adobe Flash Access 2.0 at the 2009 IBC tradeshow. It provides a way to combine the reach and interactivity of the Adobe Flash Platform with robust security and flexible usage rules. It is scheduled to ship early next year.
New in this release, content protected with Flash Access 2.0 will play back securely on an upcoming version of Adobe Flash Player software – the cross-operating system browser plug-in that is available on more than 98 percent of Internet-connected desktops worldwide.
Adobe Flash Access 2.0 will provide robust protection of audiovisual content and flexible usage rules to support a wide range of business models, including electronic sell-through, rental and video on-demand, for streaming or download. Adobe will demonstrate Flash Access 2.0 during the IBC 2009 Exhibition at its stand in the RAI Convention Center, Sept. 11-15.
Jim Guerard, vice president and general manager of Dynamic Media at Adobe, said: “As the No. 1 software for delivering video on the Web, the Adobe Flash Platform has enabled millions of users to enjoy high-quality content, with Adobe Flash Access 2.0, media publishers can rely on robust protection for premium content to support new, emerging business models for rich, interactive online experiences.”
