Apple may call it the ‘Post PC’ age, but when it comes to video production we’re not convinced we’ve totally arrived at that moment yet, though we were interested to see Iron Man, Cowboys & Aliens and Elf video editor, Dan Lebental’s iPad app, TouchEdit, which offers a glimpse at how mobile devices continue to evolve.

Adobe Connect has won the “Silver” and “Excellence” awards in the webcasting category of TopTenREVIEWS, an online publication that conducts side-by-side comparisons of products and makes them publicly available.
Adobe beat On24 and WebEx, whose key focus is on webcasting due to Connect 9’s superior feature set. The review begins by calling Adobe Connect 9 “a vibrant new version that invites considerable attendee participation, offers helpful and sophisticated tools to build webcasts, and gives presenters the option of hosting a webcast completely from a mobile device.” Among the features highlighted are the ability to integrate various extensions into meeting rooms, to completely host meetings from a mobile device, and the ways Adobe Connect lets users promote webinars and measure audience engagement.
The review concludes by stating, “Whether you want to generate interest in a new product, drum up new customers, meet privately with fellow employees scattered around the globe or conduct continuing education, Adobe Connect 9 is certain to have the tools and capabilities you need.”
We have to say we agree, Adobe Connect 9 is our preferred web conferencing solution and we have installed it with many customers who are using it to run regular webinars and e-learning solutions. Dreamtek have developed a bespoke plugin for Adobe Connect called the High Quality video Pod.

The right cameras and software are part of the solution, but there’s numerous additional equipment needs, such as: Read More…
Dreamtek invited Adobe Business Manager, Matt Balcombe, to join us for a Google+ Hangout on Air to discuss some of the features of Adobe Creative Cloud for Teams on Thursday 7th March; here are my top ten takeaways from the session:
1) You can try Adobe Creative Cloud free for thirty days. Once you’ve received your invitation to join Adobe Creative Cloud for teams you can register a license for 30 days free of charge. Your 12-month license starts after your free 30 days are up, so you are effectively getting 13 months for the price of 12. After thirty days the cost is £639 for a yearly license from an Adobe reseller.
There is no excuse not to serve up video content in formats supported by mobile devices any more, recent BBC iPlayer data confirms. That’s because tablet viewing via the on-demand television service doubled over the Christmas period as owners of new iPads logged onto the service.
