Convergence - Web 2.0::Television 2.0

Today is an important milestone in the journey to converge digital media streaming through the Internet. Adobe announced it upgraded its Flash Player with support for the H.264 video-encoding standard and improved audio-compression technology. The changes are astounding! Don't believe me, click on the screen below to experience it. You may have to download the new player first.

Code named "Moviestar," the Flash Player upgrade permits the playback of video encoded using the same standard deployed in Blu-ray and HD DVD high-definition video players for increased compression without quality degradation. It is currently available in beta as a free download, and the final version is expected this fall.

What this means:

Full-screen, TV broadcast quality images over the Internet. It really has to be experienced to be believed.
