Adobe Flash Platform Messaging Protocol Update

by CXOtoday Staff    Jan 22, 2009


Adobe Systems announced plans to publish the Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) specification, which is customized 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 Adobe’s latest Open Screen Project initiative. The project involves 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

"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, Adobe CTO.

The RTMP specification does not provide any requirement or restrictions on a developer’s own measures to secure content. "Our ongoing commitment to openness is accelerating adoption of the Flash Platform by developers and resulting in a new generation of Web applications, content and video experiences that run reliably across operating systems and devices," said Lynch.

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