On April 18, the AES LA Section was proud to welcome Adobe representatives senior computer scientist, Charles Van Winkle, and senior technical sales business development manager, Karl Soule, to talk about the game-changing innovation of Adobe’s CEP Extensions. These are script-based add-ons that are designed to be used with multiple Adobe products, not just audio-editing products like Audition, depending on the purpose.
CEP stands for Common Extensibility Platform. A CEP Extension extends the functionality of the host application in which they run (the Adobe product). The Extensions are based on Chromium, the same open-source standard upon which Google’s Chrome browser is based. Adobe has embedded Chromium in its Common Extensibility Platform, the framework fused or Extensions. They exist in the form of “panels.”
In their new Santa Monica facility, Karl heads a team that has engagements with specific productions who they write customized scripts for based on the production needs.
