Acrobat 9

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

Adobe have released the public beta of Acrobat 9 and Acrobat 9 Reader. There are three great new features very relevant to the work we do.

  • Acrobat 9 has the flash engine built in. Flash and therefore Flex, can be embedded into PDFs. 
    This means there is now a third way to distribute flex applications: by emailing PDF files.
  • Video can also be embedded in a PDF: both H264 and flv formats.
  • And finally PDF annotation support has been added for both flash and video.

For a media  company like Tag: that has large TV and interactive capabilities, this makes the PDF format even more compelling and useful.
