New Delhi, June 3 (ANI-Business Wire India): Adobe Systems Incorporated today introduced Adobe Acrobat 9 software, a significant upgrade that will transform the process of creating and sharing electronic documents.
Acrobat 9 delivers native support for Adobe Flash technology, the ability to unify a wide range of content in rich PDF Portfolios, and access to real-time capabilities for co-navigating a PDF document with colleagues.
"The expectations organizations and individuals have for communicating and collaborating in the workplace continues to grow significantly. The ability to break through and communicate a message in a compelling way has never been at a greater premium. Acrobat 9 is a response to this environment," said Sandeep Mehrotra, Director Sales, Adobe Systems.
For the first time, Acrobat 9 provides deep support for Adobe Flash technology, enabling users to include Adobe Flash Player compatible video and application files in PDF documents. Recipients simply need free Adobe Reader 9 software to consume the content. Now, static documents can come to life as dynamic communications.
Acrobat 9 also includes the ability to unify a wide range of content into a single document with the new concept of PDF Portfolios. PDF Portfolios enable business professionals to assemble multiple media types, such as documents, video, audio, and even 3D objects, into one, compressed PDF file.
Users can then choose among several professional layouts-or create their own-to quickly integrate content, define navigation, and add polish and branding.
As a result, communications such as sales proposals, legal documents, and product collateral can become far more customized and compelling.
In addition, Acrobat 9 provides access to capabilities for collaborating live within a PDF document-enabled by working with Acrobat.com, a new suite of hosted services Adobe introduced as public beta today.
The Acrobat 9 family consists of Acrobat 9 Standard, Acrobat 9 Pro, and the new Acrobat 9 Pro Extended software. The most comprehensive member of the family, Acrobat 9 Pro Extended, includes Adobe Presenter software for easily turning Microsoft(r) PowerPoint presentations into multimedia experiences that can be published as PDF files.
The Adobe Acrobat 9 series is priced between 99 dollars and 699 dollars.
