New Acrobat can produce .PDFs that contain Flash

AN JOSE, Calif. --
Adobe Systems Inc. is launching a new version of its document sharing software Acrobat on Monday, and this time it can package videos.

Acrobat allows users to package documents so they can be read across different hardware and operating systems.

Acrobat 9 comes with Adobe's video-enabling software Flash. Users can include Flash-based videos when they create and share documents with the portable document format, commonly known as PDF.

With a professional version of Acrobat 9, for example, users could package a Power Point presentation not just with images, but also with an audio of the presenter's voice.
