Edge Server has similar architecture as Flash Media Server (That’s why they call Origin and Edge) for data and video streaming.
It is used for distributed architecture for reducing bandwidth, transmission cost, server loading and O/S limitation (maximum number of network connection, memory, throughput, etc.).

Acrobat 8 hands on training (TC)

Here’s a training material (Traditional Chinese) for Acrobat 8 Professional.

(1) Guide (Presentation)
(2) How To (Step-by-step Hands on)

I hosted this training for four districts from Feb to Apr, 2008 talking the advanced usages of Acrobat 8.
(1) Engagement
(2) Long term Archiving — Special or Self-created characters can be embedded in PDF. That’s why PDF is portable and we need PDF to be ISO standard.
(3) PDF Package — Compressed files always bring virus / malware together. PDF can serve as a container that can contain PDF and other formats (Office, Image) into one PDF package.
(4) Project / Document Management — Downsizing from 30-MB source files becomes a small 3-MB PDF.
PDF has relatively high compression at Presentation, Photo, Scanned document, and 2D/3D CAD.
(5) Batch processing — Just one step to finish OCR, Numbering, Adding Watermark and Adding Security for multiple source files.
(6) Review — Done by Comments, Redaction and Digital Signature easily
(7) Form Design — for marketing survey and groupware workflow using Acrobat Professional and Reader only.
(8) Add Interaction — Embedded Flash and movies into one PDF. It’s really portable without any bad link.
(9) Tips — Support RSS, Adobe Labs (Digital Editions, Ads for Adobe PDF, Buzzword, SyncIn, Mars Project)
