Adobes Open Screen Project nieuwe standaard

Vorig artikel Volgend artikel

Adobe had eerder al aangekondigd haar Flash Platform als nieuwe standaard te kunnen neerzetten. Dat hebben ze gedaan onder de naam Open Screen Project. Ook hierbij weer veel partners onder de operators en handset fabrikanten. Opvallend daar is de naam van Nokia, die niet vaak meedoet aan "alliances". Ook opvallend is het meedoen van omroepen zoals BBC en MTV networks. Op het MWC is nu bekend geworden dat ook Palm zich heeft aangesloten bij dit platform.

Weer een nieuwe standaard, maar wel een die we veel gaan gebruiken.

Het Open Screen Project gaat er om dat mensen het web kunnen bekijken met rijke content (video) op diverse schermen, van mobiel tot super HD breedbeeld. Door de huidige fragmentatie onder operators, handset makers en broadcasters wordt de gebruiker (maar ook de content maker) gek van alle formats die ondersteund moeten worden. De vraag is of Adobe die standaard kan maken.

Voor de volledigeheid de tekst in het Engels van Adobe zelf:

The number and diversity of devices in our lives is exploding. Consumers want and demand the total Internet, with open access to websites, applications, and services using all devices. The challenge is that fragmentation across devices, operating systems, and browsers hinders innovation. The result? Consumer demands are not being met. The Open Screen Project was established to meet these challenges and expectations. It is an industry-wide initiative, led by Adobe with the participation of other industry leaders, to enable the delivery of rich multiscreen experiences built on a consistent runtime environment for open web browsing and standalone applications.

Establishing a consistent runtime environment

With a consistent and broadly adopted runtime, stakeholders can focus more closely on developing the next-generation experiences that will differentiate their devices, software, and services. Consumers ultimately win with richer, more interactive, and universal user experiences across devices.

The Adobe® Flash® Platform will provide the consistent runtime environment envisioned by Open Screen Project partners. This technology was chosen because it has the widest reach in the world across operating systems and devices, a community of more than one million developers, and leading authoring tools.

Innovation through industry collaboration

Realizing their common vision — to enable consumers to engage with rich Internet experiences seamlessly across any device, anywhere — requires collaboration among operators, OEMs, chipset vendors, content providers, and developers. No one player can do it alone. Working together, Open Screen Project partners will:

  • Give consumers greater choice by making implementations of the next major releases of the Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR® runtimes open and addressable by third-party developers
  • Mitigate technology fragmentation by allowing Flash Player and AIR to be updated almost seamlessly over the network
  • Unleash the creative potential of designers and developers around the world by enabling them to easily publish content and applications across connected devices
