Adobe today announced the Adobe Flash Media Solution Provider (FMSP) scheme.

This is a consortium of professional streaming solution providers and publishers offering consultation and implementation services for Flash Media Server.

Essentially it is a gathering of authorised partners for those wishing to set up live broadcasting solutions using Flash, for example. Inaugural members include The FeedRoom; Multicast Media Technologies, stimTV and others.

FMSP partner services include on-site set up, encoding, hosting, reporting and promotion.

“The market for live and on-demand streaming applications continues to grow as companies realize the power and efficiency of using the Internet and Flash to deliver high-impact communications through video,” said Jim Guerard, vice president and general manager, Dynamic Media at Adobe.

“The new FMSP program enables organisation to deliver innovative streaming solutions via the Flash player to large audiences even if they don't have Flash expertise in-house."
