With this release, Connect Pro Mobile offers users mobile access via an iPhone or iPod touch to rich communications including collaborative meetings, training sessions and Web seminars. Connect Pro Mobile was built using a pre-relesase version of Flash and was published as a native iPhone application. In fact, it's the first publicly available Adobe-authored application that uses this technology.
Plus, because Connect Pro Mobile was created using Flash, we will also be able to use the same code to deliver this application on AIR. So when we release AIR to other devices, this means that Connect Pro Mobile will be available on other mobile devices as well. In fact, last week at Mobile World Congress, we demo’d Connect Pro on a number of devices, including Android.
With Connect Pro Mobile, participants can watch and listen to live presentations including real-time meeting webcam video and screen sharing demonstrations. Mobile users can see who is in the meeting at any given time, and collaborate with others using live text chat. VoIP meeting audio will broadcast straight to iPhone or iPod touch devices over a WiFi or 3G connection. Meeting hosts also have the ability to give participants the option to join a telephone conference call, and even opt to have the conference dial out to the mobile user, eliminating the need to enter complex dialing codes.
