AtomFilms to Launch Studio for Online

Filed under: — Aviran Mordo

As the Internet has become the people’s stage and online video surges in popularity, AtomFilms is launching what could be among the first of many new studios dedicated to the production of video for online audiences.

The Internet video pioneer, which already runs a Web site for pre-produced video shorts or clips from independent creators, plans to keep banking on those projects, which it calls “atom-ized” pieces. But with AtomFilms Studio, it will finance select projects, investing upfront in the production of original content designed for Internet-based delivery.

The development house has six projects under production already - due for release in the spring - and as many as three dozen others planned for the studio’s first year. The initial round ranges from a Craigslist-inspired online dating reality series to a short film about a man who finds himself fighting for his life after a successful date.

Adobe Acrobat enters third dimension

Filed under: — Aviran Mordo

Adobe Systems has created a high-end version of Acrobat–aimed at boosting sales in the manufacturing industry–that displays three-dimensional images within PDF documents.

On Monday, the company is expected to release Acrobat 3D, which allows a person to create a PDF (Portable Document Format) with embedded images from computer-aided design (CAD) applications. Recipients of Acrobat 3D files need a point upgrade to the current Acrobat reader version 7 to view the documents, the company said.

Adobe developed the 3D product specifically for manufacturing customers who regularly exchange CAD files in the design process, said Rak Bhalla, senior marketing manager. Car manufacturers, for example, share their product descriptions and designs with their suppliers to get bids for component parts.
