New, awesome version of Acrobat Connect released

Adobe has just released a new preview release of Acrobat Connect, a.k.a. BRIO beta. I can’t claim any credit for its design or development, much to my chagrin. But it is a kissing cousin of SHARE beta, as you can see from the UI design similarities:

BRIO beta is chock full of user interface innovations that make it bar none the easiest to use web conferencing application ever. My favorite is the little sharing panel that comes up when you start sharing:

But there is a lot more to it than just that. The whiteboarding/annotation features are really cool too. You should go check it out – its completely free and it rocks!

As an aside, note you can see my own room’s URL in the screenshot above. Please don’t abuse it but feel free to stop by if you want to check it out – if I’m busy I’ll just reject your entry into the meeting room šŸ™‚

From a technical point of view, one of the more interesting facts is that it is built on our forthcoming CoCoMo platform. More discussion can be found on the Collaborative Methods blog.

  1. Very cool! Now all us users need is a portal front-end to unify these great apps!
