Try the new Adobe Connect for Webinars solution – Limited Public Beta now open

As we kick off an exciting new year, we are pleased to announce the limited public beta for the next version of Adobe Connect for Webinars solution (codename Maple). We have been working on the release for months with the focus on helping our customers deliver compelling, immersive webinars, maximize event attendance, and measure results to optimize workflows – and ultimately improve the ROI of campaigns and events.

We will be accepting 100 beta participants on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested in joining the beta, please fill out the beta interest form.

From the Maple beta you will also be able to try out the beta version of Adobe Connect Mobile for Android. This beta version significantly expands the amount of controls and rich capabilities available for Adobe Connect users on mobile phones and tablets.  Note that we currently have leading mobile applications for Android, iOS, and Blackberry Playbook now available as well – you can check them out here.

This is certainly an exciting time for Adobe Connect and we are thrilled to share with you the latest beta versions of our solutions for your feedback. Stay tuned for more news from us and don’t forget to follow us on @AdobeConnect for the latest updates.

We wish you all a terrific 2012.

    An easy access to the Internet can be upgraded in Adobe.

    I’ve been accepted to the beta, but there doesn’t seem to be any support (no replies to emails). I thought I’d try asking a few things here:

    1) What is the maximum capacity for the seminar rooms?
    2) How long will the beta testing period be?

    Thank you.

      Thanks for your note. You can post all your beta queries on the beta forums in the prerelease site. The product teams respond to all the queries, typically within a day.

    I’d be very interested in this testing opportunity. I lead the virtual classroom CoE in my organisation and we are very interested in replacing the exisitng Live Meeting platform with Adobe Connect for our large events too.

    Will version 9 finally fix the mouse pointer bug? That’s the bug that substitutes a generic mouse pointer, so that participants can’t see how the presenter’s pointer changes on his own screen. I don’t see how it’s possible to use Connect for application training until that gets fixed.

      Thanks for your note Bob. Please Stay tuned :-)

    Looks like I missed the chance.
    If you find testers who are not giving you feedback , or want to expand. I have a am conducting trainings weekly with users across multiple platforms utilizing multiple presenters and several active pods at a time.
    Happy to help and provide feedback.
