Name: Adobe Systems, Inc,
Sector: Desktop Publishing

    Adobe Systems was founded in 1982 by Charles Geschke and John Warnock to develop PostScript, the device-independent programming language between PC and printer that could describe text, graphics and images on one page. PostScript, together with the Apple Macintosh graphical user interface and laser printers, began the desktop publishing revolution that has evolved into modern graphic arts, printing and publishing -- today's high-fidelity communications. Adobe provides software to create, manage, and deliver high-impact reliable digital content to consumers, creative professionals and enterprises. Almost every image we see -- on the web, on video screens, or translated to print -- has been touched by Adobe software.
