Aerial 1.1 Now Available

Simultaneous Release With Adobe Acrobat 3.0 Works With Adobe Acrobat Exchange

Or Reader; Free for Personal Use or 30-Day Evaluation for Corporate Users

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Ambia(TM) Corporation, a Software Partners Company, today announced the immediate availability of Aerial(TM) 1.1, a new version of the navigation, text extraction and print utility product for Adobe(R) Acrobat(R) 3.0 from Adobe Systems Incorporated. The new release supports Adobe Acrobat Exchange(TM) 3.0 an Windows(R) 3.11, Windows 95 and Windows NT(R). With this new release, Aerial also supports Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0, the free Adobe Acrobat viewer available through the Internet or bundled with products and services from a variety of software and hardware vendors. All tools in Aerial that do not require saving an Adobe Acrobat document, work with Acrobat Reader.

"With Adobe Acrobat 3.0, plug-ins like Aerial can be built for Acrobat Reader as well," said Kevin Wandryk, Director of Business Development of the Internet Products Division at Adobe Systems Incorporated. "Aerial's robust tool set offers a fast and easy solution for navigating through documents created with Acrobat. And users can take advantage of all the features of Aerial by upgrading to Acrobat Exchange."

Aerial is now available free for personal, non-commercial use. Corporate and government users can use the product free during a 30-day evaluation period. Aerial can be downloaded from Ambia's World Wide Web site.

"With the explosive growth of Internet and Intranets, the number of electronic documents have grown as well," explained Razi Mohiuddin, Vice President at Ambia Corporation. "However, until Aerial, there has been no tool to easily organize the vast collection of electronic documents." Aerial's navigational tools includes Quick Tags to catalog commonly referenced documents and pages. Users can also paper clip frequently accessed pages and cycle through them at a later time.

Aerial also includes the popular "Go To Document Page" tool to jump to the actual page number of a document. This enables users to quickly go to pages marked ii, iv, C-1, and 4-17 rather than simply paging down one page at a time. The text extraction tools included in Aerial enable users to copy tabular data into spreadsheets, and extract text and graphics in RTF format for use by Microsoft Word, Lotus Notes and other applications.

The print view tool prints selected areas of large documents such as schematic drawings or large spreadsheets, or prints multiple pages two- or four-up on a single printed page. Users can even customize the number of pages to print horizontally and vertically on each page, as well as scale and fit to size of the page.

Pricing and System Requirements

Aerial 1.1 is free for personal, non-commercial use. Corporate, business and government users can use Aerial free during a 30-day evaluation period. After the 30-day evaluation period, Aerial is available for $49.95 for a single user copy. Quantity discounts are available. Minimum system requirements for Aerial 1.1 software are Windows 3.11, Windows 95 or Windows NT running Adobe Acrobat Exchange 3.0 or Acrobat Reader 3.0.
