Not clear about revMedia vs revEnterprise

I have a question:

It was my understanding that Revolution Media used to be a $49  
application, similar to Studio and Enterprise but lacking many of  
advanced and professional features.

Now, is the new RevMedia just for the web? Or is it still a  
development environment where you can create stacks that will run from  
the desktop (with the appropriate "player")?
