New York Website Development Firm Says That “Flash” is the Innovation of the Decade

Leading Manhattan website development expert explains that the introduction of Flash has changed the face of the Internet and says that all business website owners should consider integrating Flash elements into their website design.

“The launch of the Flash-rich media platform has helped revolutionize website design,” says Peter Crisafi, Vice President of dzine it, Inc., a leading New York website design and website development firm with clients around the world. “Flash is a great way to bring new life to an existing business website and, more and more, business website owners are learning the power of Flash.”

According to Crisafi, Flash refers to Adobe Flash, which was first introduced in 1996. It is a multimedia platform, he says, that is commonly used to add animation and interactivity to web pages.

“Flash is used to create a wide range of interactive web components including advertisements, integrated video, games and various Internet applications,” says Crisafi. “Flash is quite versatile because once the created content is saved and distributed, it can be displayed on several types of computer systems and devices, using Adobe Flash Player, which is available free for most common web browsers, some mobile phones and for other electronic devices.”

It really wasn’t until Flash video capabilities were integrated into the Flash authoring tool in Flash Player 6 and Flash MX 2002 that Flash truly made its mark, Crisafi says. This was an important milestone, he explains, because it allowed web developers to easily add video content to websites, rather than having to embed a video player.

"Without the development of video capabilities in Flash,” Crisafi explains, “YouTube would not be what it is today and the Internet would be a very different place."

That doesn’t mean however that Flash components on websites have not been abused, Crisafi notes.

“A good web developer knows that there needs to be a balance when it comes to a website,” Crisafi says. “Using too much Flash can be a detriment to the user experience and search engine optimization. At dzine it, our staff of Flash and online video experts know exactly what it takes to create a successful website while harnessing the power of Flash interactivity.”
