Begin and end meetings, advance slides and control animations, share documents and other media-rich content, take shared notes, run polls, and drive meetings with active tools and pods.
Be confident that invitees will be able to join your meetings easily, without needing an additional download. Adobe Flash® Player software is already installed on virtually all Internet-connected computers.
Allow even first-time users to actively participate in meetings without training. Adobe Connect makes sophisticated capabilities visible to users as they need them, reducing the potential for confusion when attempting simple tasks.
Adobe Connect enables you to provide rich multimedia experiences for participants, with integrated audio and video conferencing. Unlimited webcam streams at DVD quality, integration with video teleconferencing systems, and the ability to share rich media without requiring any codec or player downloads, ensure that you can meet face-to-face and deliver your ideas most effectively.
Enable participants to share unlimited webcam video streams into meetings at DVD quality with active speaker indication, to truly collaborate face-to-face with all participants. Bring a single speaker into focus, or enable a grid mode to view all streams at the same time.
Share a variety of content types including animated presentations, images, audio, video, and more. Because anyone in your meeting is already using Adobe Flash Player, attendees can view any content without additional plug-ins.
Manage meetings far more effectively leveraging meeting environments, content, and URLs that persist even when your meeting ends. Create your own customized URLs for your digital meetings. Leverage templates to quickly create additional meeting rooms and use them for specific types of meetings. Completely brand the environment, and securely store all of your files, documents, layouts and notes in a persistent manner – where they will stay exactly as you last left them at the end of the day, ready for immediate reuse at any time.
Set up any number of individual meeting rooms and store work-in-process in each room so that teams can pick up immediately where they left off. Users define their own persistent URLs for meeting rooms, rather than using complicated system-generated URLs.
Conduct content preparation, whiteboarding, private chat, and layout customization with multiple presenters before and during meetings. A special presenter-only area allows sharing of content that cannot be seen by other participants.
Activate rich, functional "pods" as needed during meetings. Standard pods include attendee, share, note, video, file share, whiteboard, web links, poll, and Q&A pods. Organizations can create custom pods as well.
Use standard meeting room templates or adjust the meeting environment to suit your specific needs. Hosts can add, delete, move, or resize meeting "pods" as needed in seconds before meetings and in real time during meetings.
Provide single-click URL access to log-in screens for attendees inside and outside of your firewall. Hosts can manage a full range of participant meeting privileges in real time, including such aspects as roles, sharing, chatting, and submitting questions.
Within meetings, create multiple breakout rooms, each with its own private VoIP or telephone conference call. Customize rooms or use default templates and easily monitor breakout sessions, move between rooms, or broadcast messages to participants across room boundaries.
