As a user of Adobe Connect, it's pretty nice. I prefer it for multi-user video chat over Lync, because you can see all the videochats at once in a gallery view, versus just the "active speaker" in Lync (which is often incorrect). It's handy from a document presentation/whiteboarding view, and can also be used for "town hall" type discussions, where a selected presenter (or presenters) have full rights to talk, and a moderator selects users to speak. From an IT standpoint, I have heard that licenses for Adobe Connect can be quite pricy. The admin interface is fairly decent, and you can connect to LDAP for user/group information (such as giving an entire security/distribution group specific permissions in a meeting). Hope this helps!

I have had horrible luck with audio in adobe connect. I always recommend that each party use a headphones/microphone to help avoid feedback. In any circumstance when one of the parties is a large conference room or auditorium, all other parties need to stay muted and only unmute when they need to talk. If you tie in for the phone support, it is awesome!

We used to have Adobe connect and switched because of the headache for remote users not having admin rights to install the plug-in.
