Watch Adobe MAX Kenotes powered by Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5


Adobe MAX is our annual developer conference held in Los Angeles at the Nokia theatre at LA Live (the same venue as the MTV Music Awards, Grammy Awards and other great events). This year we will be streaming the Keynotes live using Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5. The main HD feed will be delivered to browsers that support Adobe Flash 10.1 using HTTP Dynamic Streaming (Adobe’s HTTP streaming format) and to Apple iPad and other devices using the HLS streaming format. We also will have a secondary feed streamed using P2P technology, RTMFP also from Flash Media Server 4.5. P2P technology allows us to delivery live video at very low delivery costs.

The live streams will be fed directly from the stage and beamed to our production facilities at AEG Digital Media where the live broadcast will be encoded into multiple bitrates and use Flash Media Server 4.5 hosted at All Digital to create both the HDS and HLS files to be delivered over HTTP by our Content Delivery Network partner, Akamai. The MAX online player is using AEG’s Tremolo player built for Flash using the Open Source Media Framework version 1.6 (released earlier this month).

The Adobe MAX keynotes are the best place to learn what Adobe has been working on, and to discover and be inspired by the talents of our developer community who combine our products to produce truly creative works that drive their businesses. You can also learn about the latest tools and products from Adobe and get sneak peaks what we are working on.
