Adobe Connect Pro Adds Universal Voice Support

adobe-lqAdobe (s adbe) has launched a new version of its web conferencing app, Connect Pro, that adds the ability to integrate existing telephony/VoIP solutions. (Adobe calls this “Universal Voice.“) This feature should make Connect Pro more attractive to organizations with existing telephony packages in place, as it won’t add to phone costs. As well as being able to use any existing telephony service inside the app, you can record audio from telephone-based participants along with your web conference, and stream audio from them to those using VoIP. Other enhancements in this release include improved security controls and an increased maximum number of conference participants (now at a mammoth 80,000 users).

Adobe also has announced that it is working on various native mobile apps for Connect Pro, with an app for iPhone and iPod (s aapl) due to be released first.

Does Universal Voice make Connect Pro more attractive for your company?
