CQ5 DAM H.264 video output on Mac OS X Lion

I  just added an article to the Experience Delivers blog of Adobe on how to configure your Mac OS X Lion environment to ensure CQ5.5 will properly transcode videos to H.264 quality so you can play these on Safari and Apple devices like iPad, iPhone and Apple TV.

And now for something completely different…

It has been a while since I have blogged for Adobe. Busy with my day to day working life in Adobe Professional Services, delivering on our exciting technologies in demanding projects, I simply couldn’t find the time to update this blog after my MAX 2009 lab delivery. From a blogging perspective inexcusable, I know, but…

…Things have changed. First of all I changed roles. As you can see from the top of this blog, I moved into a pre-sales, solution consulting role in order to enable our partners in the region (Benelux, Nordics, Germany, Austria, Switzerland) on Adobe’s enterprise products. On top of that Adobe has made some recent changes with respect to their enterprise strategy (which is explained in more detail on the Adobe Enterprise Blog).

In line with the title of this blog post I will now focus in my daily job as well in this blog on our Digital Marketing products: CQ5 and the Omniture suite of products. So expect a revitalization of this blog with some different content than what you would expect from past articles, but please still reach out in case you do have questions on ADEP, LiveCycle, Flex, etc. If I cannot answer these right away, I am sure I will find someone who can.

As a token of the revitalization of my blogging efforts, I just refer to an article I published recently on the Adobe Enterprise Blog (no need to duplicate efforts here, right?). Happy reading and blog to you soon…

MAX 2009 lab available

As promised in my previous post, you will find details below to run the MAX 2009 lab titled ‘LiveCycle for Service Orchestration’ on your own environment. Obviously this requires some preparation on your end and we assume your environment is Windows 2003 (the lab has not been tested and/or deployed on any other environment):

  1. Install LiveCycle ES2 JBoss Turnkey on your environment. Visit the Adobe prerelease site in case you don’t have the prerelease version
  2. Install Acrobat 9.x on your environment
  3. Install Eclipse (the ‘Ganymede’ version)
  4. Install MySQL 5.x Tools (note that the MySQL database server itself comes with the LiveCycle ES prerelease)
  5. Install Baretail in case you want to monitor your log files

Adobe MAX2007 Schedule

Here is my personal Adobe MAX2007 session schedule. Bear in mind there are lots of other activities going on in between these sessions and in the evenings, like general sessions and sneak peaks. And even activities Adobe Consulting is hosting, like Chalk Talks and a “Adobe Consulting knows everything about Flex, LiveCycle ES and User Experience Design” BOF. Read all about it on Steven Webster’s blog.

About Me – An Introduction

It’s finally here, my public blog for Adobe. I started just about 5 months ago working for Adobe in the Netherlands in what looks like a very exciting period in both my career and Adobe’s history (both are not necessarily connected b.t.w.) and sofar I’ve been that busy, I have not yet had the time to properly set up this blog.

I joined Adobe as a technical architect after having worked for the last couple of years for PTC/Arbortext as solution architect, mainly focusing on enterprise publishing solutions. Before that, I worked most of my career at HP, focusing on middleware technologies and business process management. Within that HP period, I even stepped out for a year to work for Macromedia (we’re talking beginning of the century) but enterprise business was not yet high on Macromedia’s radar screen, hence my return to HP in 2001.
