Broadcom and Adobe Systems have announced the integration of the Adobe Flash Platform into Broadcom’s latest DTV and set-top box system-on-a-chip (SoC) platforms. The collaboration is intended to pave the way for Flash-based entertainment experiences on TV sets that offer viewers new options for accessing Web content.

With Adobe Flash Lite 3 software supported in the Broadcom BCM3549, BCM3556, BCM7400 and BCM7405 SoC solutions, TV viewers will be able to view Flash-based content and applications from online providers and entertainment sites. Broadcom DTV and set-top platforms with integrated Adobe Flash support are expected to be available to manufacturers in the first half of 2009. Broadcom will demonstrate Adobe Flash support on its BCM7405 and BCM3549 solutions at this week’s 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show.
