Adobe Upgrades, Renames Rich Media Content Controller
Adobe Systems is renaming Adobe Flash Media Rights Management Server, which controls access to streams of rich media content,
Adobe Flash Access 2.0 is being introduced on Thursday at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam.
"We can protect downloaded content so you can have the file on our hard drive instead of just streaming it. But that file can be restricted by the publisher so that the user can be limited in the number of copies they can make," said Mark Randall, chief strategist for the dynamic media organization at Adobe.
Flash Media Rights Management Server has been used for showing content such as sports, TV shows, and movies.
"You can now secure that video in an enterprise scenario," said Randall.
Adobe at the conference also will show a screen-writing tool, Adobe Story, for writing searchable scripts for video and multimedia productions. A beta version will be available on Adobe Labs, with general release planned for next year.
"Now you can have the entire script as searchable content," in any search engine, Randall said. Metadata is captured from scripts.
