Adobe's Open Screen Project plans for Flash content on your television have got a step closer.

Connected digital home devices with the "optimised implementation" of Flash technology that will deliver high definition video and "rich" applications will include Internet-connected televisions, set-top boxes and Blu-ray players.

These Flash technology-based applications will mean users can switch between television programming and Web content on their televisions.

Adobe says major System on Chips vendors, OEMs, cable operators and content providers including Atlantic Records, Broadcom, Comcast, Disney, Intel, Netflix, STMicroelectronics, The New York Times Company, NXP Semiconductors, Sigma Designs, "and others" have now announced support for the optimised Flash technology.

Products with the support for the optimised Flash technology are expected to start shipping in the second half of 2009.
