This week in PDF: Adobe transfers responsibility for its 3D SDK

This week in PDF has seen a web-based solution for capturing sales leads launched, a developer kit updated, and a free webinar announced. Meanwhile, Adobe has inked a deal to transfer development and support responsibilities for its 3D SDK.

First up, Vitrium Systems recently announced the official launch of PDFSalesLeads at SIIA NetGain Conference and Road Trip for Innovation. PDFSalesLeads is a web-based application that allows publishers to capture qualified sales leads through interactive forms embedded within documents. Specifically, the software captures sales lead data when readers interact with documents. The embedded interactive forms send information to the publisher in real time when documents are read, shared or passed along.

In update news, Accusoft Pegasus recently updated its PDF Xpress SDK. The new version adds support for 64-bit environments in the new AnyCPU .NET toolkit. Additionally, version 4 now supports the latest PDF standards allowing the software to create files in accordance with the most recent PDF definitions and to render the most recent PDF files, created by Adobe Acrobat or other applications.

On the education front, Visual Integrity has announced a free webinar to help people learn about vector and raster PDF files. The webinar will be held on Wednesday, June 9, 2010, from 1 – 2 PM, US EDT. Interested parties can reserve their spots at the webinar’s registration page.

Finally, 3D component provider Tech Soft 3D has signed an agreement with Adobe to take over development and support of Adobe’s 3D SDK, along with related technologies, employees and resources. Consisting of a 3D CAD translation suite and PDF publishing SDK, the technology allows OEM development teams to create applications that access data from popular 3D file formats, and to publish rich 3D PDF files in the industry-standard PRC and U3D formats. Adobe will continue to support viewing of and interaction with 3D data within its applicable products, including the free Adobe Reader software. Moving forward, Tech Soft 3D will continue to make updated CAD translators available to end users as plug-ins to applicable Adobe software for reading and outputting 3D PDF.
