Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is a flash based web conferencing software. This is also primarily used for online training materials and presentations.

This company was founded by two indivuiduals by the name of John Warnock and Charles Geschke in December of 1982. This is a product of the Adobe company, however, it was created by a start-up company by the name of Presedia which had the first generation of PowerPoint flash plug-in.

Presidia was bought by Macromedia and added Breeze (Live) Meeting (Breeze is a web component). As a result, it was named Macromedia Breeze. Adobe then acquired Macromedia Breeze and renamed it Adobe Connect.

They improved upon the features of Macromedia Breeze and works with Microsoft Windows. This company also has its headquarters located in San Jose, California with over 9,000 (nine thousand) employees throughout the world.
