The Open Screen project will concentrate on porting existing Flash technology to Intel's CE 3100 media processor which will allow the viewing of web-based content and video on consumer electronics.

The two companies are working together to make consistent approach to viewing media across a wide range of gadgets using Adobe's Flash Player and Flash Player Lite.
