Adobe Connect 8 Flash-based Web conferencing solution announced with Android and iPhone support

Yesterday, Adobe announced the next version of Adobe Connect, its Flash Player-based Web conferencing and online meeting solution. For those unfamiliar with Adobe Connect, previously known as Macromedia Breeze and Presedia Publishing System, it is Adobe's browser-based answer to things like Cisco's video conferencing systems, Citrix's GoToMeeting, or in a very basic sense, Skype's screen shar...

Adobe Flash Media Gateway enables VoIP and video conferencing from Flash Player and AIR

Adobe announced yesterday that you'll soon be able to make VoIP calls right from Flash Player. A server solution from Adobe called Flash Media Gateway will enable you to make calls to landlines, cell phones, and computers using an SIP gateway. And if you happen to have a webcam (and who doesn't these days), it will even support video chat using H.264. The interconnection fun doesn't stop there...

FaceTime comes to the Mac, beta now available for download

During an event in Cupertino this morning, Apple has announced FaceTime for Mac. A beta version of the application is already available to download.

There's a big upside to the service: it's free, it's easy to use, and it doesn't require signup for anyone but the host of the meeting. The downside is that you might run into major lag. When I tested the service, each user's audio ...

Google enters the video conferencing market

Google has purchased Swedish video conferencing company Marratech, possibly with the goal of adding a video conferencing application to Google Pack or Google Apps. Unlike several competing video conferencing applications, Marratech requires a desktop download. Clients are available for PC and Mac users. This would hardly be the first desktop application from Google, which already offers the Goog...

Mac VoIP/Video tools: new features just keep comin'

With all the hoopla surrounding video in recent weeks, thanks to the video-centric Fall VON trade-show in Boston, it's no surprise that the folks making VoIP communications tools for the Mac have embraced video-conferencing. Since I did a head-to-head comparison of the four major VoIP communication tools for Macworld back in July, so much has changed. The video has gotten better and easier--so eas...
