Network World conducted side-by-side comparisons of eight of the leading web conferencing vendors and ranked Adobe Connect in a tie for first. The Network World web conferencing vendor test ranked the services according to four scenarios ranging from meetings of two to five people to large scale webinars.
Adobe was excited to see the areas where the review praised Adobe Connect, including the ability to host large-scale webinars calling it a “post-conferencing reporting powerhouse.” Network World also noted “Connect also has the strongest features when it came to measuring audience engagement and supporting archival meeting content.” Other areas where Network World positioned Adobe Connect above other offerings were the recording options available, including the ability to record the chats and participants names, and its mobile client, noting its “consistent user interfaces and clean look.”
In addition, the review discussed persistent URLs for Adobe Connect meeting rooms, calling them “handy when a team is working over a period of time on a set of documents.” As our customers know, this feature is also useful for setting up last-minute, ad hoc meetings.
Another area the review considered was the audio options each service provides. Adobe’s own Alistair Lee recently blogged about the Universal Voice feature, which lets users leverage VoIP or their audio provider of choice.

Announcement Affecting Connect 7.5.x on-premise customers:
As of June 1, 2012, the Universal Voice (UV) feature will no longer function in Adobe Connect 7.5.x with on-premise installations, which are accounts where customers have installed Connect on their own servers to run locally. This loss of functionality is due to the expiry of the Flash Media Gateway (FMG) license. To fix this issue, a FMG License patch needs to be applied. Details about the patch and how to apply it can be found here. We apologize for any inconvenience. Customers who have upgraded and are running Connect 8.x are not affected. Please contact Adobe Platinum Support at 866.335.2256 if you are running an affected on-premise account and need help, or contact your GetConnect sales rep.
Adobe Connect has begun to post some sneak peaks of some of the new features that engineering is working on for future versions of Adobe Connect. Some of these features are incredibly exciting. Check out the blog and video from Alistair Lee of Adobe Connect for all the exciting details.
