This morning at IBC in Amsterdam Adobe launched Flash Media Server 4.
Most notable improvements are:
- 64 bit support –> increased performance
- p2p/rtmfp support -> we’ll be able to do commercial p2p apps on top of FMIS4
Now the bad news:
- the price is the same, in the US the Streaming edition is about $995.00 and the Interactive edition is about $4500 .
- the p2p/rtmfp goodies are only available in the Enterprise edition (very expensive) but hopefully Adobe’s FMIS hosting partners like influxis.com will offer rtmfp/p2p support as standard in their hosting offers.
