Dennis Interactive Rolls Out Flash Publishing System

New York-based i-shop Dennis Interactive on Wednesday announced the in-house development of its Flash Publishing System (FPS), a system that eases the process of creating, editing and changing content on Flash-enabled Web sites.

The new system, which was created by Dennis programmers over the past 12 months, will allow most developers, even those without Flash installed on their computers, to change and post new content to a Flash-enabled Web site.

According to a company news release, FPS reduces a project’s initial build time by more than 50 percent and reduces the cost of maintenance after the initial build. Also, because the system is HTML-based, features such as bookmarks, text searches, pop-up links and polls can still be used.

Dennis programmers said that because of the increased ease of use, the new system will allow for and encourage content-heavy Web sites, such as online magazines, to utilize Flash, a widely used multimedia application created by San Francisco-based Macromedia.
