VeriSign and Adobe have announced their intent to collaborate on integrating Adobe Flash technologies with VeriSign’s peer assisted content distribution technology. The first phase of the expected collaboration consists of VeriSign incorporating Adobe Flash Media Server 2 into its new globally deployed Intelligent Content Delivery Network (CDN), letting publishers deliver high fidelity video on-demand and MP3 audio streaming services across a high-performance, more secure and reliable CDN.

The two companies expect to work together to integrate future versions of next generation media technologies leveraging VeriSign’s Kontiki peer-to-peer technology and Adobe’s Flash Video software. The combined services will allow companies to deliver customized interactive Flash Video experiences, including movies, TV shows, broadcast media, and user interface technologies.

“VeriSign’s global reach and leadership in intelligent infrastructure services will give content providers the ability to deliver truly innovative and more secure Flash Video experiences to the widest possible audience worldwide,” said Bruce Chizen, chief executive officer at Adobe. “The ubiquity and power of Adobe Flash, combined with advanced streaming and media technologies from VeriSign, fundamentally changes how rich media content is deployed to consumers.”

“With its technology and products reaching hundreds of millions of installations on PC and Mac platforms, Adobe has established an incredible reach on a global scale,” said Stratton Sclavos, chief executive officer at VeriSign. “By combining forces, we will offer customers a simpler, more cost effective way to create, manage and distribute high-quality, long form video content, revolutionizing the creation and distribution of rich media content online.”
