Adobe announced the Flash Platform for Digital Home

Today Adobe announced the extension of the Adobe Flash Platform to digital home devices like hd-tv set, set-top-box, blu-ray players and the like.
It will be possible to access interactive on-line services and HD video directly from these devices without a browser.

This is a really good new. Finally Flash Player lands on the main stream media market and this is only the beginning of the Open Screen Project. Probably this is the first, effective, step to define a brand new generation of interactive HD TV service.

It is not clear if the platform is H.264 ready because the press release mention a generic FLV support. Obviously I hope it is, and in this case, DivX will have a new and tough competitor.

Adobe will show the technology during NAB this week.
