Yesterday, Adobe quietly launched two new HD websites that showcase High-Definition content using the Flash platform. As you saw earlier this week, Adobe announced an update to Flash player 9 to support HD contend and h.264 codec. content in HD quality using the Flash platform.
These launches seemed to coincided with the launch of a new product section located in the header of the main Adobe.com website. Different images and products are highlighted each time you load the page and one of them promotes "The fusion of TV and the Internet" and links to a site I had not seen until now at adobe.com/flashon. The flashon site contains HD movie trailers from some of the major studios as well as some other content.
As Dan Rayburn pointed out on The Streaming Media Blog - that the bad news is that if you want to see anything at 720p or higher, you need a fast machine. Adobe very clearly states the hardware requirements but most won't really have the power to watch the high-res content at 720p or 1080p.
Thanks to Dan Rayburn for pointing this out to ReelSEO.
