Adobe Systems released Macromedia Flash Lite 2 software and Macromedia Flash Player SDK 7, tools for building rich, engaging mobile and device experiences based on Flash technology. Flash Lite 2 is a release of the Flash Player for non-PC devices, bringing rich user interfaces to mobile phones and consumer electronics devices. Flash Player SDK 7 is the Flash Player optimized for consumer electronics, enabling manufacturers, system integrators, and browser companies to create products and services with full Web browsing capabilities that leverage the Internet sites featuring Flash content.
The two technologies lets designers create customizable user interfaces, while delivering consistent consumer experiences across devices, operating systems, processors, and screen sizes. By leveraging the Flash ecosystem, which includes the Flash authoring tool, rendering engine, and a community of more than two million designers and developers, Flash Lite 2 and Flash Player SDK 7 can reduce deployment costs and deliver content and interfaces faster than competing solutions.
Both Flash Lite 2 and Flash Player SDK 7 are built on the ubiquitous Flash Player 7, and include ActionScript 2 support, Unicode support for international markets, tighter device integration, persistent data management, reduced memory consumption, and improved XML data handling.
