SAN JOSE, CA — Software giant Adobe Systems is using its new open source media framework player on Adobe.TV, the company’s new video site.  The site launched in September.

Adobe, Akamai, and others have been working on a open source video player, which is easily customized and deployed. 

The implementation of the player on Adobe.TV is the industry’s first.  The back-end is powered by Coldfusion 9.

We caught up with Adobe’s Bob Donlon last month at the Streaming Media West conference in San Jose.

In addition to explaining the infrastructure of Adobe.TV, Donlon gives a great overview of the power of online video for corporations for internal and external communications.

I’ve pasted the open source player below.

Earlier today, we published a story about how Intel is using video for corporate communications.
