Flash Media Gateway – VoIP For Flash

Adobe just announced a new server platform called Flash Media Gateway that will enable Flash and AIR developers to communicate with traditional telephone networks. In addition to regular voice calls, Flash Media Server will support video calls, flexible telephony APIs, customizable call flow, audio mixing, and real time transcoding. Using the Flash Media Gateway will require using a Flash Media Server and an SIP account to connect to the telephone network.

This is a great development for the Flash platform as it will now allow Flash developers to make a wide set of new communication applications.
