A new application enables Adobe’s Flash Video to play smoothly on mobile phones. The transcoding system will be unveiled this week at 3GSM in Barcelona.The technology has been created by On2 Technologies, a video compression company based in the U.S.
The company’s video compression technology is licensed to Adobe for use in Flash 8 and 9. The video compression software is also sold directly to content developers and video sharing sites.
The new system for wireless transcoding is called Flix Engine 3GPP. It will initially support the H.263 and AMR-NB 3GPP formats. On2 has the exclusive rights to transcode Flash files.Content developers and carriers will have the ability to transcode Flash files and make them available directly to wireless users. The system provides compression of video files, making them as little as one quarter the size of the original files.
Making video files smaller is of crucial interest to wireless carriers, many who are daunted by the expected bandwidth demands of streaming video.
They shown clearly how video appears at different frame rate. Very intresting!
And definately a enormous growth in flash video.
