Adobe has won the Emmy Award in the Technology and Engineering category, an award given by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for its Flash Video technology. The Video Streaming Architecture and Components award will be officially presented at the CES show that will take place in January 2007 in Las Vegas.
Right now television series such as Lost, Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy and Friday Night Lights are broadcast online thanks to Flash Video technology. Similarly, this technology also allows the proliferation of video websites like YouTube and MySpace.
With Flash Video technology, users can view high-quality, interactive videos online as a true, seamless, instant video experience. Flash Video is played with Adobe’s Flash Player, making it possible to capture the widest possible audience on the Web regardless of the type of browser or operating system they use. Flash Player is installed on more than 700 million Internet-connected computers and mobile devices.
