Adobe wins Emmy for Flash
Adobe has been awarded an Emmy for its Flash Video technology, emulating Apple and Sony.
The US National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences said that the award recognises the software’s pivotal role in bringing television content to the Internet.
‘Flash Video is fundamentally changing the role of video on the Internet, and this prestigious award is further proof of this technology’s profound impact on how broadcasters deliver their content,’ said Shantanu Narayen, president and chief operating officer at Adobe. ‘ABC and NBC and pop culture phenomena like YouTube and MySpace are relying on Adobe technologies to reach new audiences.’
Apple has two Emmy’s – one for FireWire and the other for its Final Cut Pro video editing software – while Sony picked one up last year in recognition of the PlayStation’s role in pioneering 3D polygon-based gaming.
