Macromedia Technology Announcement and Demonstration by Kevin Lynch, Chief Software Architect, and Jeremy Allaire, Chief Technology Officer
There’s some seriously cool stuff coming out very soon, and I think it will have a cumulative sledgehammer effect on your clients and potential clients. Much of the momentum we all get will depend on what they can see out of the gate — how the early projects are custom-fitted to a specific client need.

To try to connect the dots, lets look at the press release from the release of Flash MX:
For communication and collaboration solutions, developers will be able to use a new Macromedia communication server technology that will enable powerful capabilities including two-way audio and video as well as real-time data transfer with Macromedia Flash Player 6.
So thats for the rumors, it seems that the hard facts will be released at FlashForward 2002 NYC, which in many ways have become one of Macromedia’s favorite venues for releasing announcements about new products.
