Part of the Flash Media Server family, the new Flash Media Encoding Server (FMES) will allow you to do the following:
- Take your catalog of archived materials and convert them easily into Flash compatible formats
- Integrate the server into your production workflow by offloading the encoding process from your editors' machines to a dedicated server
- Ingest user-generated content from a variety of formats and prepare it to stream through Flash Player
- Encode high-quality video files into multiple bitrates to accommodate changing network conditions
In a nutshell, FMES provides a fast and scalable, customizable server solution for preparing your content from a vast range of formats for delivery through the ubiquitous Flash Player, Adobe Flash Lite (mobile), and Adobe Media Player.
Flash Media Encoding Server is being introduced for US$6000. It will be available later this year.
