Flash, HTML5 and Scene7
You may have recently heard the news that Adobe plans to increase its efforts on HTML5, and to focus Flash on mobile applications (packaged with AIR) and PC browsing with an emphasis on use cases not yet addressed by HTML5, including premium video and console-quality gaming; and thus, will no longer develop Flash Player for mobile web browsers. Now, you may be wondering how this will affect Adobe Scene7.
Simply, the Adobe Scene7 dynamic media delivery solutions are aligned with this strategy. The current and future roadmap investments focus on standardizing on HTML5 to deliver engaging visual experiences on mobile screens. With the recent launch of Adobe Scene7 5.5, we added a new HTML5 SDK for developing custom viewers for zoom and spin. We plan to continue building on this foundation to extend to other viewer types and add more visually-rich capabilities to our HTML5-based viewers. More details about the Scene7 HTML5 SDK are available in latest Scene7 product release notice.
