“Our licensing deals have strict guidelines around content protection,” said Hiroaki Teraoka, Project Lead of Video Platform Project at Yahoo! Japan. “The Flash Access implementation will allow us to protect content while making it available to our users across multiple devices.”

Adobe has seen an overall 100 percent year-over-year growth in video streaming via Flash, reaching 120 petabytes a month according to ComScore.
