I want to create AIR applications for TV. Where do I get more information?

You can get more information from the following locations:

What is Adobe AIR 2.5.1 for TV?

Adobe AIR for TV enables the creation and delivery of rich, expressive applications, video, and content for TV. With AIR for TV, developers enjoy greater value for their investment in the Adobe Flash Platform and are able to participate in true multiscreen development as well as more easily monetize applications. AIR for TV takes advantage of hardware acceleration that is specific to TV-style devices (including Blu-ray disc players and set-top boxes), as well as hardware-decoded H.264 for cinematic-quality video playback. As with all other AIR platforms, ActionScript 3 is supported.

What is the Adobe Flash Platform for TV?

The Flash Platform for TV is an integrated set of tools, services, and device technologies that enable the creation and delivery of compelling web experiences, applications, games, and video to connected TVs, Blu-ray players, and set-top boxes.

How can I learn more about how to develop AIR for TV apps? Are there any examples of these apps today? What do I need to start developing AIR for TV apps?

Featured on the Adobe Developer Connection are tools, resources, and tutorials for developing AIR 2.5.1 for TV applications.

What tools do developers use to create AIR 2.5.1 apps for TVs?

Developers can use the following tools:

Note: Developers can use the AIR 2.6 SDK for developing apps for AIR 2.5.1 for TV. In Flash Professional, set the publish settings to Adobe AIR 2.5. In Flash Builder, set the AIR namespace to 2.5 in the app descriptor file:
<application xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/air/application/2.5">.
If you are using Flash Builder 4.5, you must do the following:

  1. Download the Flex 4.1.0.16076 SDK.
  2. Download the AIR 2.6 SDK.
  3. Copy each file from the AIR 2.6 SDK into the corresponding directory within the Flex 4.1 SDK, replacing the Flex original variants.
  4. To use this SDK within Flash Builder, select your project in the Flash Builder package explorer.
  5. Choose Project > Properties to open the project's Properties dialog box.
  6. Select Flex Compiler in the list and then click the "Configure Flex SDKs" link to open the Preferences dialog box.
  7. Click the Add button, browse to the SDK, and then click OK until you get back to the project's Properties dialog box.
  8. Click the "Use a specific SDK" option and then pick Flex 4.1 from the drop-down menu.

You must also replace the default WindowedApplication element with Application in your project's MXML file.

When will Samsung TVs with support for AIR 2.5.1 apps be available in the U.S.? Worldwide?

Samsung Smart TVs with AIR 2.5.1 integration will be available in the first half of 2011 in the U.S. and later in 2011 worldwide.

How do I know if my AIR applications are compatible with a specific television?

Developers and consumers do not have to worry about AIR apps system compatibility with a specific television for the following reasons:

  • Television manufactures and chip vendors will be responsible for certification of Adobe AIR on their hardware. This certification requires that all functional and performance tests pass, so developers can rest assured they have a baseline level of performance and "horsepower" to work with.
  • During the app development process, all that is required of developers is that they select the correct TV device profile when compiling their apps. Also, testing on a device is a critical part of the development workflow to ensure that all the appropriate tips, tricks, and techniques for developing for televisions are taken in to account.

What other TV manufacturers will deliver support for Adobe AIR 2.5.1?

Adobe is excited that the Samsung Smart TV platform will be the first platform to be enabled with AIR 2.5.1. Adobe looks forward to announcing additional TV partners next year.

What is the difference between Flash support on Google TV and AIR support in Samsung Smart TVs?

Google TV has integrated Adobe Flash Player, a browser plug-in that enables rich web experiences and video to be extended to the TV screen. AIR for TV allows for the delivery of rich, immersive applications to the TV screen.

    What tools do developers use to create AIR 2.5.1 apps for TVs?

    I have followed every step desribed on this question, and still, when I replace 2.6 with 2.5 in the namespace descriptor, and save the file, Flex Builder still signals me an error, and won't build anything...

    I have been trying different workarounds, like using only the 4.1.0 SDK, but then if I describe my namespace as /2.5 it won't even debug because the 4.1 SKD is set for 2.0 applications...

    Leave the namespace as 2.6 during development and then only change it to 2.5 after you have exported your release build.

    Hope that helps. Mike G.
