Broadcom and Adobe announce the integration of the Adobe Flash Platform into Broadcom's latest DTV and STB system-on-a-chip platforms. The collaboration paves the way for rich Flash based entertainment experiences on televisions that offer viewers new options for accessing web content on their TVs.
With Adobe Flash Lite 3 software supported in the Broadcom BCM3549, BCM3556, BCM7400 and BCM7405 SoC solutions, TV viewers will be able to view Flash based content and applications from popular online providers and entertainment sites. Broadcom DTV and STB platforms with integrated Adobe Flash support are expected to be available to manufacturers in the first half of 2009. Broadcom will demonstrate Adobe Flash support on its BCM7405 and BCM3549 solutions at this week's 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show.
