This morning at IBC in Amsterdam Adobe launched Flash Media Server 4.

There will be 3 editions (Streaming, Interactive and Enterprise) + the free Developers edition. Check out the comparison matrix to see what’s included in each!

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 will offer rtmfp/p2p support as standard in their hosting offers.
