Device Central CS4 info

Adobe has provided details on another component of its newly-announced Creative Suite 4, Device Central CS4. The software is used to test and preview "rich" CS4 content meant for cellphones and other mobile hardware, such as Flash-compatible videos. Over 450 continuously-updated device profiles are included, with access to an online library containing information from handset makers.

The program also includes a new automated testing environment, which simulates different network environments and can run a series of actions through the use of a script. Scripts can be applied across devices, and testing sequences can be exported in the form of screenshots or H.264 video. Content can subsequently uploaded to an FTP, or directly to a device through Bluetooth.

Device Central is included with all editions of CS4, and applies to apps such as Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator and Premiere Pro.
