Adobe Systems is the company that invented Postscript, the page description language
that is the magic behind the desktop publishing and font industry. The same postscript
file can be sent to a $500 dollar postscript inkjet printer or a $100,000 typesetter and
will render exactly the same (except for resolution). Adobe Reader technology brings this same
uniformity to the video monitors of a variety of computers. Adobe supplies free viewers
for Unix, Windows, Macintosh, and others so that each will display a book exactly the
same as the printed version.
- Acrobat is the software standard for electronic books
- The same document file is readable by Windows, Mac, UNIX, and others
- Adobe Reader software is free
- Adobe Reader books can be distributed on diskette, CD, or via the Internet
- Documents display graphics and fonts exactly as the paper document and in many cases
graphics are zoomable to better clarity than is possible on paper
- Adobe Reader documents are easily updated and supported and they can be password protected
- The existence of an Adobe Reader version of a book generally enhances the sales of paper
editions and it penetrates into markets that paper books do not.
