Last month, I attended the 2009 Adobe Max conference and wanted to share a few exciting developments at Atlantic Records in conjunction with Adobe and the Flash platform. We were nominated for a Max Award and showcased two new products, one for connected TVs and set top boxes and another for the connected car.
Below is the booth where David Brown from Agencynet and I answered questions about our award nominated mobile application, Fanbase Mobile, for the conference attendees prior to final voting.

While we’ve been working on a prototype of Fanbase for connected TVs with developer Rhett Woods for a few months now, this was the first time I got to see the app running on a device. This is on a Vizio TV running Stagecraft, Adobe’s Flash Lite implementation for the digital home. Right now connected home products are pretty hard to come by, so it was really exciting to see a working demo of our app.

I was also able to see the QNX connected car for the first time. This is another partner (along with Alcatel-Lucent) and I built this version of Fanbase for a custom implementation of Flash Lite 3.1 they have running in the car. I had seen it in emulators and on demo boxes, but there is no comparison to see the app running on a 4G network in the car.
