Adobe and Intel are working together to port and optimise Adobe's Flash technology to the Intel Media Processor CE 3100. The aim is to bring Flash content to devices such as set-top boxes, digital TVs and connected audio-visual devices.
The two companies claim to be uniquely positioned to support consistent internet content across both traditional PC systems and TV platforms. The move is intended to provide better video and web content across the full breadth of consumer devices.
"Our effort with Adobe will provide consumers with access to a growing number of Flash-based applications that will ultimately be enjoyed across a number of screens seamlessly, from the laptop to a mobile internet device and now the TV, " said William Leszinske, general manager of Intel's Digital Home Group.
Announced in August 2008, Intel's CE 3100 is a system-on-a-chip combining an 800MHz Pentium M core with graphics functions and video decoder circuitry.
The chip enables developers to target growth areas such as consumer electronics using the familiar Intel architecture.
