Adobe
Systems
announced Adobe Flash Player 11 and Adobe AIR 3 software to
enable the next generation of immersive application experiences
across devices and platforms including Android, Apple iOS (via Adobe
AIR), BlackBerry Tablet OS, Mac OS, Windows operating systems,
connected TVs and others platforms. As the game console for the web,
Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 allow game publishers to instantly deliver
console-quality 2D and 3D games over the Internet to anyone with a
typical PC, tablet, smartphone or connected TV. Media companies can
take advantage of new features to seamlessly deliver protected
feature-length, cinema-quality HD video through the web, in mobile
apps, and complete with surround sound for connected TVs. As a
cross-device entertainment platform Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 enable
the best in online gaming and premium video, and help content
publishers to reach the broadest possible audience while streamlining
development.


Dozens
of new features in Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 allow developers to
deliver a new class of gaming and premium video application
experiences, as well as sophisticated, data-driven content with
back-end systems integration across devices, including the iPhone and
iPad via Adobe AIR. Native extensions add support for unique device
features and native code libraries, empowering developers to freely
choose the right mix of Flash, HTML5 and native code to provide a
powerful user experience across PCs and devices. Flash Player 11 and
AIR 3 will be publicly available in early October. Flash Builder and
Flex, Adobeʼs open source framework for building mobile, web and
desktop apps, will offer support for the new features in an upcoming
release before the end of the year.


Flash
continues to blaze a trail in what the world should expect from
high-impact web and mobile application experiences,” said Danny
Winokur, vice president and general manager, Platform at Adobe.
“Flash offers the best way for content owners to deliver their most
demanding experiences, including games, premium video and
sophisticated data- driven apps, to all of their users, while HTML 5
tools such as Adobe Edge and Dreamweaver are ideal to build
interactive web pages, rich ads, branded microsites and
general-purpose mobile applications.”

Native
Extensions: With
support for thousands of highly-optimized, open-source libraries,
developers are able to tap into unique software and hardware
capabilities including access to data and files on the device,
vibration control, magnetometers, light sensors, dual screens and
more. Support for native extensions also allows developers to more
deeply integrate business software into applications and access
hardware APIs like Near Field Communications.


Captive
Runtime: Developers can
automatically package AIR 3 with their application to simplify the
installation process on Android, Windows and Mac OS in addition to
Apple iOS operating systems. Users no longer have to download and
update the runtime separately. In addition, developers can manage
version updates to their application independent of general AIR
runtime updates by Adobe.


Content

video content delivered on mobile platforms can now be protected
using Adobe

Flash
Access 3.


HD
Video Quality
Across Platforms:
Full frame rate videos can now be displayed within Flash based
applications on Apple iOS devices using H.264 hardware decoding. Rich
applications on televisions are also able to deliver HD video with
7.1 channel surround sound.


Rental
and Subscriptions
Support: With support
for Adobe Flash Access and Adobe Pass, content publishers can take
advantage of rental and subscription options for more flexible
business models and offer TV Everywhere content to over 80 percent of
pay TV subscribers in the US.


Security
and Compatibility:
By leveraging cryptographically secure random number generation,
more secure applications can be created. Additionally, native support
for 64-bit operating systems and 64-bit web browsers on Linux, Mac OS
and Windows ensures a smooth browsing experience across platforms.
