Headsets, Chat, VoIP, Internal Microphones, Webcam Microphones, and External Phone Calls are the most popular ways in which people use to communicate inside Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro. For individuals with a hosted Connect Pro account or for the fortunate ones who have their own Connect Pro Server Cluster, telephone integration with Connect Pro is the way to go. Go ahead and put the headsets away and contact a company like MeetingOne: http://www.meetingone.com/us/ and get your Adobe Connect Pro Meeting Room configured to call your educator’s cell phone or office phone automatically. Yes, the Connect Pro Meeting Room will call you and get you right into the meeting room with up to 50 other individuals. Just contact MeetingOne and set-up the “Conference Room Number” and “Host Access Code,” then login into your Adobe Connect Pro account and go to “My Profile” and then “Edit My Preferences” save the information, open up your room, and turn on the internal telephone bridge and start talking and sharing in real time. It even gets better, the telephone integration works with the recording feature inside Adobe Acrobat Connect Professional. Anyone can now turn on the recording while talking on the phone and retrieve the audio and presentation from the Meeting Room. In addition, I watched the keynote from Adobe MAX 2009 and saw in amazement how cell phones will be able to host a Connect Pro Meeting. So basically, you can be inside your car, looking at the ocean, open up a Connect Pro Meeting Room on your cell phone and have the meeting room call the cell phone sitting in your hand, what is Adobe going to think of next?
