What You'll Need for Connect
What are the system requirements for Adobe Acrobat Connect?
- Not much. See the video requirements here.
Do I need an Internet connection to use Adobe Acrobat Connect?
- Yes, you must have at least a 56 kb/sec internet connection.
Do I have to download any software for Adobe Acrobat Connect?
- All that is required to view Connect meetings and recordings is the Flash plug-in. Flash comes pre installed on Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 but you may have to install Flash on other Web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox. It is a small download and a quick install. Most of the time, Connect will prompt you to install the plug-in if you do not have it.
If you are a Meeting host or presenter you will need to install the Connect Meeting Add-in. This will allow you to upload files and share your screen. It is a small download that you will be prompted to install when inside a Connect meeting. It takes about a minute to download and install. This only has to be done once per computer.
What Kind of Webcam and Mic do I need?
- Most PC based webcams and microphones should work well with Connect. We recommend the Logitech line of webcams. They range from $30.00 - $120.00. Many come with a built in microphone.
Most Mac based webcams and microphones should work well with Connect as well. We recommend the Apple iSight which cost about 130.00.
Most DV cameras with a firewire port will also work with Connect.
