Adobe Systems Middle East has teamed up with HP Middle East for the launch of Adobe Creative Suite 5 (CS5) in the region.
Following its formal launch last weekend, the Arabic language version of the software suite is available this week.
Guests at a glitzy launch ceremony were given live demonstrations of the product's capabilities at a ‘Photography Island’, ‘Video Island’ and ‘Flash & Gaming Island’.
Abdallah Saqqa, General Manager of Adobe Systems Middle East, said: "We were delighted by the turn out from the industry and hope they enjoyed the first hand demonstration of CS5, which is already being shipped globally. This is the Middle East’s first glimpse of the product and I think the general consensus was that they can’t wait to own it, especially the Arabic version which will be available later this week."
Salim Ziade, general manager, HP Middle East Personal Systems Group, added: "We are excited about the launch of Adobe CS5 in the Middle East. The latest HP workstations and printers allow users of Adobe CS5 to fully experience optimum quality on-screen imagery and printing.
"The Adobe Beach Bash was the perfect opportunity for design industry professionals to witness the extraordinary performance of Adobe CS5 when combined with HP’s premium technology."
