Inlet Couples HD Spinnaker 7000 with Adobe Flash

Inlet Technologies (not to be confused with Intel) is rolling out its new live HD H.264 video streaming capabilities, designed to work in tandem with Adobe’s Flash Media Server.

Inlet’s appliance, the Spinnaker 7000, streams HD video in real time using with Adobe’s Flash Media Server 3 to deliver content to Adobe Flash Player 9 users. Inlet said its goal is to allow content creators to begin offering viewers and PC users a “living room” experience via Internet broadband. The Spinnaker 7000 (first unveiled in May prior to its synergy with Adobe) allows content creators to distribute live HD content for viewing over IP networks in real time.

Adobe Flash, for the most part, is one of the Internet’s most ubiquitous formats, and Inlet said tapping into the H.264 video streaming standard and using the Flash Media Server allows for video approaching 720p quality online (depending, as always, on the computer and computer monitor, and the online connection).

Inlet, which is based in Raleigh, N.C., said its Spinnaker series is one of the first professional streaming appliances that can output Adobe Flash H.264, VP6, VC-1 and Silverlight streams simultaneously, allowing content providers to reach virtually any user on any device.
