Flash Video Takes the Web By Storm

Flash Video Takes the Web By Storm

Flash video, which enables companies to deliver custom branded video experiences directly in their Web site, is beginning to sweep the Web.

With Flash video interactive content can be delivered across a high-performance, reliable content delivery network to Macromedia Flash Player. This means that approximately 500 million Web users - the installed base of Flash Player - can in turn immediately experience the video content without downloading special plug-ins or media players.

Macromedia has set up here a "Flash Video Gallery" containing additional customer examples.

Examples abound. Since the launch of "The Fan" in November 2003, video usage on Comcast.net has increased by a factor of 10. Comcast uses Flash video to deliver an interactive broadband portal to its high-speed Internet customers that in addition to "The Fan" broadband multimedia player includes "The Assistant," a personalized toolbar with always-on utilities, "Comcast Rhapsody," the country's leading Internet jukebox service, and additional broadband content from leading providers such as E!, G4, The Weather Channel, The Knot, Planeta Networks, Expedia, Scripps Networks, Major League Baseball, and others.

Meantime Carat Interactive used Flash video to deliver the "Impossible is Nothing" campaign for adidas featuring female boxer Laila Ali and her legendary father, Muhammad Ali. The video ad delivered more than one million plays in a single day.

"Flash video is a great way to bring the impact of a successful television and print campaign online," said Geene Keenan, director of technology innovation, Carat Interactive. "With the resonance Flash brings a campaign, to the reliability of the Flash Video Streaming Service for the delivery, this was an obvious choice for us."

Integrated video experiences look like being the wave of the future. MXDJ News Desk will continue to monitor the continued adoption of Macromedia Flash to deliver streaming video to millions of users.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
