Adobe has released updates of Flash Media Server 4.5 and Flash Access 3.0 platforms for mobile devices. The Flash Media Server 4.5 upgrade will allow media publishers to bring their videos to iPad and iPhones while the Flash Access 3.0 platform upgrade is for the Android smartphones and tablets.
Flash Media Server is a proprietary media server from Adobe which works in combination with Flash Player to create rich Internet applications including videos which are then delivered to the mobile devices. Flash Access is a content protection system, which controls users’ access and allows users to watch video content when they make the payment.
Ben Rolling, vice president of development for AEG Digital Media, a leading provider of complete webcast management and media services for live streaming events and online video, says, “Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5 improves the stability of our video streams, decreases load times, and helps us better manage encoding and bitrates for an improved end-user experience on mobile devices and online. We can trust that it will deliver rock solid video streams and please our clients, advertisers and viewers, whether we’re streaming the royal wedding or the Grammy Awards.”
