Adobe TV Online

Posted by Sravan | October 8, 2008 .

Fuelled by Lyora MacRae’s moderate success with the Adobe Flextv on Youtube, Adobe has taken video presentations to the next level with its Adobe TV. Or so we would’ve thought had I not traced this six-month-old press release in Adobe’s archives.

I’m guessing that Adobe TV has remained undiscovered by most of the world, because even Lyora herself hasn’t once mentioned its existence. Apparently, it is also available through the Adobe Media Player and is “the perfect showcase for Adobe’s broadcast video technologies in action.”

Adobe TV is a free channel (for the lack of a better word) that contains both instructional and inspirational material about various Adobe products. It has sub-channels aimed at designers, photographers, video professionals and developers, and videos cover twenty-three products! I saw some of the Adobe product names for the first-time on the channel here. The videos are made by Adobe evangelists, leading trainers, subject matter experts, and others behind the products.

The channel has, of course, a pleasant and simple look reminding us of any Adobe AIR app. Once you reach any video thumbnail index, videos can be further filtered product-wise, release-wise, skill level-wise, and topic-wise.

Currently, there are no videos of any kind on Flex Builder and AIR (nor on Lightroom, Device Central, Ultra, Version Cue, and Audition). There are also only tutorials available. No videos under “demos”, “tips and tricks” or “inspiration”. Perhaps, Adobe doesn’t add to this site actively. It could have something to do with the channel’s popularity, which I blame on the lack of promotion by Adobe.

But read this: there are 16 videos in the “Learning Flash Professional CS4 – Getting Started” series by Todd Perkins, the Adobe Certified Instructor. Sorry, I can’t give you direct HTML links from this Flex site but they are the most recently added videos, so you don’t need to even search.
