Flash is making a splash in the device market, says an engineering services firm deputized by Macromedia to resell embedded Flash technology to low-volume licensees. Vibren says Flash is coming to POS (point-of-sales/service) terminals, personal organizers, PC replacements, small-screen airline entertainment devices, real-time securities trading terminals, digital signs, and more.

Vibrens deal with Macromedia last June made it the primary source for Embedded Macromedia Flash Player licenses in North America for companies requiring fewer than 200,000 licenses. Previously, the Player carried a minimum order volume of 100,000, according to Vibren. Vibren reports that since June, it has helped a growing number of device designers integrate Flash technology in projects such as: * A system based on one of the worlds fastest microprocessors * Tablet PCs used as research devices, personal organizers, and PC replacements * Price checking systems that double as POS information stations that cross-sell complimentary products and alert shoppers to sales of similar products * Mobile research and trading devices for traders on the stock market floor * LCD signs enabling business to address customers with targeted, time-sensitive messages * Kids toys The company adds that it is currently working on a project related to small-screen entertainment devices for airplanes. In addition to Flash licenses, Vibren offers Flash integration and verification services, on Linux, Windows CE, and QNX, as well as consultation and verification services for companies porting the Flash player to other operating systems. Vibren also offers embedded Linux development services, and a range of other engineering services.
