Adobe Connect upgraded to offer conference recording and mobile streaming
Although Adobe is a household name when it comes to computer software, it hasn't made serious inroads in the world of videoconferencing services, despite being on the ninth version of�Adobe Connect, its flagship Web conferencing system. In this world, Webex and Citrix remain synonymous with online video communication, education, and training.
Today Adobe is rolling out some impressive upgrades that it hopes will increase its competitiveness in this space, with the release of Adobe Connect 9.1.
Adobe senior product marketing manager Rocky Mitarai gave me a personal demo of the new version of the service and it's looking good. The focus of the system is on "going above and beyond basic screen sharing," says Mitarai, "with a particular eye on things like training and webinars," which require more sophisticated videoconferencing environments.
Adobe Connect is optimized for mobile clients, and this is one of the key areas in which Connect is getting an upgrade in version 9.1. Now even more of the service's desktop features are available on mobile platforms, including the ability to stream recordings across any mobile device. (Formerly, pre-recorded streams were only viewable on desktop clients.) The new version also offers support for multipoint videoconferencing with two live and unlimited paused webcams. Mobile platforms can also now be branded with a customized background (like your company logo), and more advanced features like interactive quizzes are now supported on mobile devices, too.
