A popular media distribution technology from Adobe.
Adobe Flash is a multimedia technology developed and distributed by Adobe Systems. Flash is used primarily for two purposes:
- adding animation and interactivity to web pages, including advertisements and games (via a scripting language called ActionScript);
- integrating streaming audio and video into web pages.
- use Flash animation and ActionScript to design advanced screen layouts for broadcasting purposes: animated graphics, dynamic content (news tickers, weather, currencies, etc.) - with the Flash Overlay DirectShow Filter;
- import Flash media (SWF and FLV files) into broadcasting applications, so that Flash content can be delivered to the consumer via traditional channels - see Flash DirectShow Source Filter.
