MIPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores, today announced it is participating in the Open Screen Project, an industry-wide initiative led by Adobe to enable the delivery of rich Internet experiences across mobile phones, televisions, set-top boxes, and other consumer electronics and devices through the Adobe® Flash® Platform.
MIPS Technologies and Adobe are collaborating as part of the Open Screen Project to optimize Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for the MIPS® architecture.
Existing Flash technology already runs on a number of SoC platforms based on the MIPS architecture, and was originally demonstrated at the International Consumer Electronics Show in January 2009.
In October, MIPS Technologies announced the release of a MIPS-optimized version of the ActionScript™ virtual machine (VM) that is used in Adobe Flash Player.
Now MIPS and Adobe are further demonstrating their commitment to providing Flash Player 10.1 support for the MIPS architecture.
“MIPS Technologies is committed to supporting key platforms that will enable the next-generation of connected multimedia devices, and Adobe Flash Player is an essential element of the rich web experience in these products,” said Art Swift, vice president of marketing, MIPS Technologies.
“We are seeing growing demand among our customer base for Flash Platform support on MIPS, the leading processor architecture for digital home devices.”
“Bringing Flash technology to the digital home is a priority for Adobe, as we believe it will fundamentally change the way consumers view and engage with content on their televisions and other devices,” said Ricky Liversidge, vice president, product marketing, Platform Business at Adobe.
“We are pleased to have MIPS Technologies participate in the Open Screen Project. With support for MIPS, Flash Player will provide great benefits to MIPS licensees as they build SoCs for DTV, set-top boxes and beyond.”
