Broadcast Family Events LIVE

Chances are you have wanted to announce something important to the whole family all at once but could only connect on the phone. The phone is a great way to connect but we miss all the action that live video can give us. How do we share our live video of the event or announcement if I have more than one relative interested in joining us? Skype is great for one-on-one occasions but including others in various locations is impossible.


Three people can enter a personal, private “room” where you can share live video and audio of your event or announcement. Those joining the room will have no trouble enjoying the moment right along with you. Here’s how you get started.

  1. Visit http://www.adobe.com/acom/connectnowConnectNow
  2. Sign up for an account.ConnectNow SignUp ConnectNow SignUp2
  3. Adjust the room. Find the PODS menu and uncheck all the options except for WEBCAM. Then make sure to expand the WEBCAM pod in the room.Picture 6 Picture 7 Picture 8
  4. Start camera Picture 12 and mic Picture 13.

  5. Invite family and friends. Picture 10 Just tell them to click on the link you will send them. They will need to enter a guest name before joining you in the room but that’s it. No downloads.

Feel free to try out ConnectNow next time you would like to broadcast live your announcement or event to the whole family all at once.
