Adobe today announced the Open Screen Project, supported by a group of industry leaders, which aims to drive consistent rich Internet experiences across televisions, personal computers, mobile devices, and consumer electronics.
The Open Screen Project is working to enable a consistent runtime environment -- taking advantage of Adobe Flash Player and, in the future, Adobe AIR, that will remove barriers for developers and designers as they publish content and applications across desktops and devices, including phones, mobile Internet devices (MIDs), and set top boxes.
