Adobe Announces Adobe Connect 9.5. Featuring HTML5 support and offline MP4 conversion.

This fall Adobe will begin rolling out version 9.5 of Adobe Connect. Customers will find many improvements, both technical and visual, including support for HTML5 and local MP4 video conversion.

HTML5 Support In 9.5, Adobe has put a lot of emphasis into better support for web standards. Adobe Connect users will now be able to import your HTML5 learning content from Adobe Captivate and Presenter into an Adobe Connect virtual classroom. Instructors who have moved from Flash eLearning content to HTML5 can continue to import their courses into their virtual classrooms.

Offline MP4 Conversion Adobe Connect has always allowed hosts to export their recordings as FLV files, and in doing so retain the full interactivity of the original meeting and any handouts or links provided to the original attendees. In 2013 Adobe recognized that sometimes hosts also need to export their recordings as MP4, and provided an extra hosted conversion services for those needs. Now in version 9.5, Adobe is bringing every Adobe Connect account the ability to locally export their recordings as MP4 video files in a range of resolutions. From mobile ready to full HD, these recordings will be saved directly to their computer. The hosted option for MP4 conversion will still be available to customers who prefer that, as well as the more interactive FLV conversions.

Smarter webcams Users can also look forward to improvements to their webcam video experience. Version 9.5 introduces a smarter video pod that recognizes when to adjust webcam usage, freeing up bandwidth, and providing an enhanced experience to your video conferencing with unlimited webcams.

Adobe Connect 9.5 rolls out this fall, but if you would like to hear more about Adobe Connect version 9.5, contact us at info@clarix.com.
