Adobe and NVIDIA Deliver Rich Mobile Web Experiences

GPU-accelerated Netbooks and devices from HP, Lenovo and Samsung support full Flash Player.

At Adobe MAX, Adobe’s developer conference, Adobe Systems Inc. and Nvidia Corp. announced a joint effort to bring rich mobile Web content to netbooks, smartphones, and smartbooks built with Nvidea GPUs.

Working closely as part of the Open Screen Project, the two companies are seeking to optimize and improve the performance of Flash Player 10.1 by taking advantage of GPU video and graphics acceleration on a wide range of mobile Internet devices.

Vendors embracing Flash Player 10.1 for their new devices include HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Acer, and Asus among others.

Users are expected to be able to download a beta of Flash Player 10.1 before the end of the year.

“The combination of Nvidia GPUs and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 enables device manufacturers to deliver uncompromised Web browsing of rich applications, interactive content, and HD video with substantially decreased power consumption,” states an Adobe Corp. press release. “With the support of the Nvidia GeForce, Nvidia ION and Tegra products, users will be able to enjoy a much smoother viewing experience.”

Dan Vivoli, senior vice president of Nvidia says customers want the best viewing experience from the Web regardless of the interface. “Our engineers have worked closely with Adobe to make this a reality,” he says.

David Wadhwani, general manager and vice president of the platform business unit at Adobe, says working together has enabled Adobe and Nvidia to “leverage the power of graphics processors.” He adds, “Adobe and NVIDIA are able to provide breakthrough Web experiences on a wide range of devices. This new development brings us a step closer to putting the power of a PC in your pocket.”

Nvidia ION-based netbooks and nettops–like the HP Mini 311, Lenovo IdeaPad S12, Samsung N510, Acer AspireRevo, and Asus eeeBox EB1012–and shipping now. Once Flash Player 10.1 is available, they will employ GPU-accelerated video decoding previously found only on PCs.

Tegra processor-based smartphones and smartbooks that start shipping later this year will accelerate vector graphics and video to enable feature-rich, full-screen Internet video and animation.

“HP is pleased to work with Nvidia and Adobe to give customers a compelling high-definition video experience,” says Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager of consumer notebooks at HP.

Lenovo vice president, North America channel partners, predicts that “as more and more consumers connect online for their entertainment, GPU acceleration with NVIDIA will enhance this experience.”
