Due to the large volume of news generated by the IFA, IBC and CEDIA trade shows--and because the [itvt] editorial team has been working on TVOT NYC Intensive 2011--we are covering stories in this issue in round-up/summary format. We anticipate that it will take us several days to catch up with all the recent news: so if your company has sent us a press release or briefed us on an announcement, and you don't yet see your news covered in this issue, please bear with us.
Adobe announced Wednesday that over 20 companies are "embracing" its recently announced open framework for building media players (note: for more on the new framework, see the article posted on itvt.com April 21st). The company bills the framework, code-named "Strobe," as helping establish an open industry standard for media players and as offering production-ready software components to streamline the development of custom media players, thus reducing the time content publishers spend creating their own playback technologies.
