Adobe Connect technical advantages


Adobe Connect is a web conferencing system that allows users to have secure online meetings, training and online webinars accessible through any web browser. It allows anyone to easily create online meetings and web communications including voice, video, animation and interactive multimedia without any prior technical prowess.

It makes enterprise-wide online meetings a reality and is the perfect choice for organizations that need online web meetings to support a wide range of needs and applications. All of this can be accredited for its technical structure and functionality.

Here are some technical aspects of Adobe Connect that make it superior:

Modular architecture

Adobe Connect’s architecture is highly scalable, secure, and flexible, allowing users to collaborate in real time, wherever they are. Participants in online web meetings can easily join meetings instantly without the need to download additional software, as Adobe Connect is based on Adobe Flash® technology that is already installed on all computers connected to the Internet.

People can also access training materials, sales and more at their convenience on demand with thousands of concurrent users. It is designed as an open platform and can be extended and integrated with other systems with a set of APIs.

Server architecture

Adobe Connect segregates all logical functions on different independent servers. Thus, functions such as presentation, application processing, and data management all occur on the servers. This tiered system makes Adobe Connect ideal for large businesses as it works efficiently for big data and reduces server load and latency.

Its application server can manage users, groups, on-demand content, and client sessions, among other tasks, and its streaming server acts as a meeting server. It provides real-time audio and video streaming and data synchronization. The wide range of collaboration capabilities it offers can be easily used and allows users to have better streaming experience.


Statistics play an important role in understanding the results of any activity. Attendance at a meeting, the answer to a question asked or the number of participants in a training program, etc. help determine the impact and behavior of participants.

The Adobe Connect server offers detailed audience reports on their behavior and participation, as well as session analysis using the hosted service Adobe SiteCatalyst. They track the number of views on landing pages; the different answers to the registration questions; participation in meetings or webinars; and even participating in polls, Q&A, and file upload activities during meetings.

Multimedia transcoding

Maintaining high quality media in meetings is imperative for an enjoyable experience for all participants. Adobe Connect Server automatically converts all popular document formats into the highest quality files that can be viewed in the meeting room for quality viewing.

It provides several file conversion utilities such as PowerPoint files (PPT, PPTX) are converted to small vector files. This conversion provides the highest quality display that is resolution independent for all participants. The conversion also reproduces the hyperlinks and all the original animations of each slide ensuring a synchronized display for all viewers.

Extensibility and custom integration

Adobe Connect can be easily customized with support for brand, system and meeting customization, etc.

Organizations can easily configure meeting room layouts using standard or custom templates, control participant roles, and even communicate privately behind the scenes with other presenters. Using published APIs, organizations can also incorporate external data and extend the functionality of any meeting room, seminar room, or virtual classroom; create multi-user applications such as games. All of this can work collaboratively from within the meeting.


Adobe Connect apps make it easy to deploy training even on mobile phones, not just desktops. It’s a great option as a secure and flexible interface for web conferencing, training, and meetings.
