Adobe Systems and HP are expanding their relationship to help technical professionals -including architects, engineers and construction (AEC) professionals - improve collaboration in their organizations and more effectively drive document-based work to completion.
The first outcome of this expanded relationship will be a new offering for customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) that bundles Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional software with HP Designjet large-format printers. The combination helps improve efficiency and reduce costs by allowing technical professionals to reliably share all the components of a design project, both electronically in Adobe PDF files and by accurately printing the files in large format.
Features of the Acrobat 7.0 Professional include the ability to generate high-quality, searchable and secure Adobe PDF files from any application, including CAD, technical diagramming, project scheduling and other business and technical software. PDF files created by Acrobat 7.0 Professional retain the look and feel of original application files, including layers, fonts, images, and formatting. In addition, Adobe PDF files can include added security, such as password-protection, so documents can be shared with confidence inside and outside the firewall.
