A few quick notes. It looks like Adobe Media Server 5.0.1 has been released to the public. Check out more info on that here. Closed captioning, multiple audio tracks and more content protection are the bigger points on this release.
While we rarely see any more work involving AMS, they do seem to be getting some very big names in on it like the Mars Rover and BBC Olympics coverage. They even point out that their target is no longer the everyday developer and smaller shops by saying “Adobe Media Server is targeted for Broadcasters, Enterprises and Governments across the world”. So that explains a lot I think.
All in all, forward movement is great. I look forward to seeing what else they do with the product. Hopefully more groundbreaking stuff that will set them apart from their main competition as these two are quite comparable in some ways..
