Adobe Air 3 has added functionality to bring 7.1 Dolby Digital Plus and DTS Surround Sound compatibility to Flash based applications.
Flash apps on Smart TV platforms will now be able to bring HD sound alongside HD visuals.
“Dolby Digital Plus in AIR 3 will further extend the availability of high-quality entertainment across screens,” said John Couling, Vice President, Products and Platforms, Dolby Laboratories.
“Dolby is committed to bringing a cinema-quality experience to the home on a wide range of devices. Now consumers will be able to enjoy premium surround sound from more applications in their living rooms.
“Flash is the technology of choice for delivering rich, high-end media experiences. Media companies and content distributors can leverage AIR to deliver and monetize premium video applications with pristine sound while consumers can enjoy HD video paired with HD audio delivered directly to the TV.”
The Adobe Max conference is currently underway, bringing with it new versions of Air and Flash, as well as further Flash integration on TVs.
