Adobe Adds Utility and Security to Flash Video Streaming

Posted Thu Jan 27, 2011 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

A new partnership with thePlatform allows for simpler delivery of streaming content.

Adobe is a big name in the streaming world. The top 10 video streaming sites in the world - including YouTube, Hulu, and NBC Universal - all use Flash, created by Adobe for the purpose.

Thanks to a new partnership with a Seattle-based company called thePlatform, Flash is getting some added features. Adobe's going to be using the company's video management software to allow for easier streaming to multiple platforms.

The new implementation will also help companies keep their content secure, and to better monetize their videos.

John Vartanian, the Chief Technology Officer over at iN Demand, is excited for the addition. "The alliance of thePlatform and Adobe will result in a significant upgrade of the video management and distribution capabilities for our online video product."
