Veriskope SWITCH - the answer to migrating Flash to modern HTML 5 standards


The industry’s "only complete migration solution from Flash or Flex-based applications, including real-time media, to modern platforms that modernises your brand’s UI, look and feel to current standards" has launched, promising to give "businesses a boost with an array of advantages including speed, security, accessibility, and next-gen UI standards, preserving valuable IP while upgrading it for the Net of tomorrow."

Veriskope. The company is a provider of streaming media solutions, and an official Adobe partner, has released Veriskope SWITCH.

This software is billed as "the industry’s first complete migration service from Flash or Flex applications, including real-time media platforms, to a new rich media platform based on standard web browser technology such as HTML5, or Apache Royal."

Designed for businesses and organisations of any size, using Flash or Flex-based applications, Veriskope SWITCH provides them with all-around, fully scalable development services to migrate the existing codebase into a new modern HTML5 solution.

Naturally, this includes the cutting edge interactivity with video and data management capabilities you expect, accessible to anyone via mobile, laptop or new connected devices.

We're told that migrating Flash-based applications to new modern platforms "brings an array of business advantages, including long-term viability, higher speed, greater security, more accessibility, modern UI standards while opening new innovation opportunities."

All of this is an issue because, as of January 2021, Adobe began pushing an “uninstall script” to the vast majority of Flash users.

As a result, millions of businesses and organisations using Flash applications were left without support, and were no longer able to run Flash applications in the new versions of most web browsers, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari.

Veriskope SWITCH is the solution to the problem, especially with Veriskope being an official Adobe partner and the exclusive partner to provide continued sales and support for Adobe Media Seriver, Real-Time Messaging Protocol SDK, and Flash Media Live Encoder.

Versikope explains that its development service "helps you rebuild and migrate to a new solution, by either providing tools und guidance to IT admins, or by performing the development and migration service from A to Z for customers - even those without any IT expertise in this area at all."

And, while migration from Flash to SWITCH may seem like a complicated process, Veriskope says its experts guide you through "a fast, smooth, and cost-effective transition."

Robert Pierce, COO of Veriskope said: "Many companies have found temporary workarounds and continue to struggle with Adobe Flash and Flex solutions. With Veriskope SWITCH, any organisation can quickly migrate away from Flash and onto a long-term, enterprise-class HTML5 solution with minimal retooling and cost."

Offering a further explanation, Veriskope says its SWITCH product is "a fully customisable migration solution adapted to your company’s needs. Veriskope’s team analyses your existing Flash or Flex application and develops a plan to migrate your solution, modernising your UI as much as desired.

"Veriskope’s proven expertise in consumer real-time media platforms, such as video, audio, data streaming applications, and experience with WebRTC and RTMP for video and chat, ensures Veriskope SWITCH can add unique value by rebuilding real-time video, and additionally makes Veriskope especially skilled at migrating Flash or Flex media-centric applications.

"Veriskope can also redesign and reimagine the old Flash app with new, modern features. Based on open source solutions, Veriskope SWITCH gives users the ultimate flexibility, control, and confidence to adapt, strive and thrive in the future."

Here are the key Veriskope SWITCH benefits:

  • Complete migration service that moves Flash and Flex applications to modern HTML5 standards
