Intel plans to power its Media Processor CE 3100 with Adobe Flash technology to deliver web content to internet-connected consumer electronics devices, such as cable set-top boxes, Blu-ray Disc players, digital TVs and retail connected AV devices.
Launched in August 2008, Intel Media Processor CE 3100 is the first system on chips (SoC) from Intel for consumer electronics devices. It combines Intel Architecture (IA) processor core with multi-stream video decoding and processing hardware. CE 3100, combined with Adobe Flash, will support internet content across PCs, laptops, netbooks, mobile internet devices and the TV.
Adobe Flash is an integrated set of technologies that helps users create and deliver applications, content and video on various platforms. Adobe Flash Lite-powered CE 3100 is expected to be launched before mid-2009.
Intel and Adobe are part of the 20-member Open Screen Project designed to enable web content, standalone applications and full web browsing across televisions, set-top boxes, mobile devices and other consumer electronics that use Adobe AIR and Adobe Flash capabilities.
