AIR for TV apps documentation available

If you are developing AIR applications for Adobe AIR for TV, or want to be, check out this Adobe Developer Connection page:  Flash Platform for TV.  You’ll find FAQs, tutorials, demos, and documentation to get you going.

A few documentation highlights include:

The StageVideo class

AIR for TV profile support

A device profile defines the set of APIs and capabilities typically supported on a particular class of device.  Your AIR for TV applications will use either the tv or extendedTV profile.  To get an overview of what’s supported in these profiles, see Building Adobe AIR Applications — Device profiles.
