Sess 4: Next-Generation Review & Collaboration Work-flows in Tech Comm ›


Sess 1: Top Five Factors to Consider When Choosing Your Tech Comm Toolkit

Ask any general contractor or construction worker: Does it make sense to use the best tools? Most will tell you that while skill is important, having reliable tools is a big part of getting the job done right. Join Matt Sullivan for a one-hour discussion on how TCS 5 gives you:

  • unmatched cross-product integration fueling higher productivity
  • user-friendly authoring XML or non-XML – the choice is yours
  • any-time any-where publishing with a single click
  • ability to make technical documentation engaging and interactive by adding eLearning videos and 3D-models and graphics
  • powerful review and collaboration workflows fostering efficiency
  • a strong and vibrant user community
  • more responsive and knowledgeable customer support
  • ‘value for money’ with 54% cost savings rather than buying individual products separately

Make sure you don’t miss this one! Matt will show you the very best parts of the TCS 5 integration story, and leave you wanting to sign up for the following 3 sessions in this series, webinars related to rich media, mobile delivery, and new workgroup authoring and collaboration.

Sess 2: Making Technical Documentation More Interactive
Good tech comm is about engagement. Whether it’s an interactive training scenario, a video, or embedded 3D, Adobe Tech Comm Suite 5 handles rich media quickly and easily. Join Matt Sullivan for a one-hour discussion of rich media creation and placement using TCS 5 applications. You will see examples of:

  • Captivate output linked in FrameMaker and RoboHelp projects
  • Creation and placement of Adobe Presenter output
  • Creation and placement of Adobe Presenter Video Express output and other video formats you won’t want to miss this one!
  • Placement of U3D for working 3D models in output

Matt will also show existing deep integration with native Illustrator and Photoshop documents. In short, if you have graphics in your tech comm, you won’t want to miss this.  

Sess 3: Publishing Your Technical Content on Mobile was Never This Easy

FrameMaker 12 now natively creates the most popular electronic formats! Join Matt Sullivan for a one-hour discussion on how easy it is to create the formats directly from FrameMaker:

  • output to 5 common online formats
  • the basics for setting up output, including customizing responsive HTML5 skins

Sess 4: Next-Generation Review & Collaboration Work-flows in Tech Comm

  • The freedom to edit content during shared reviews
  • Approving/rejecting comments from reviews
  • Review on the go with mobile PDF review options
