Adobe have announced that its flash based software will cease from December 2020. Support has thus been phased out for flash as the industry moves to platforms like HTML5. By December all flash software will be removed from systems via Microsoft updates, Apple updates and common web browsers, like Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Apple’s Safari Mozilla Firefox etc….
DigiLinx system hardware uses flash based software for programming and maintenance and as a result will no longer be able to be maintained nor upgraded after December 2020 with the latest operating systems.
This does not mean that your system will stop functioning immediately but it does mean updates and repairs will no longer be possible.
It may be sensible to be proactive and agree a plan with MODO Solutions to sort this problem out now before it fails without notice.
So what to do with your DigiLinx system?
MODO Solutions has a workaround to this. We have an update to your system that will migrate you to supported systems, updates and fixes. It will also provide you with an enhanced level of quality, speed of control and with the flexibility to add new sources and zones for more output whilst still providing superb sound quality across all your old cables. Unlike some regular AV engineers, our solution does not involve obtrusive, time consuming and costly replacement of your old cables and infrastructure.
Our workaround technology is being tested right now for projects both in the UK and abroad.
Contact us to see how we can help you refresh your Clearone DigiLinx residential or commercial install and get it running better than before.
*Adobe Flash Player ‘end-of-life’ general information
- When is the Flash Player end-of-life (EOL)?
As previously announced in July 2017, Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player after 31 December 2020 (“EOL Date”). We made this announcement in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – which issued complementary announcements with more technical detail on what the Flash Player EOL will mean for developers, enterprises, and consumers using their specific OS environments or browsers.
- Why did Adobe decide to EOL Flash Player and select the end of 2020 date?
