  1. 1. Click here to test your system compatibility prior to the webcast. Adobe Connect will test whether you have the correctversion of Flash Player installed and whether your connection speed is sufficient to view the webcast. If prompted, simply follow the on screen instructions to complete any necessary installations.
  2. 2. Use a landline internet connection. Wireless connections will work, as do mobile devices, but a landline connection will provide the best video viewing experience.
  3. 3. Listen via your computer speakers and turn the volume up. This is the best way to experience audio/video synchronization. If you need to use the call-in number, please be sure to mute your computer speakers.
  4. 4. Close any unnecessary applications including browsers, email programs, etc. These programs can use up your bandwidth causing video to freeze or audio to cut in and out.

I have a discount but when I try to register, I am being asked to pay full price.

I’m registered but I can’t enter the meeting

Can I view webcasts on my mobile device?

Yes! Adobe Connect Mobile enables you to attend a meeting from your iOS, Android, or Blackberry device. While any Adobe Flash enabled device with Flash Player 10.1 or later can access an Adobe Connect meeting, Adobe Connect Mobile is optimized for a small screen and provides a great meeting experience. To download the free apps for these devices, click on the link below:

Why are some webcasts scheduled late at night/ early in the morning?

We broadcast live from our new York, Brussels, and Hong Kong studios. Depending on your time zone and the primary audience for the webcast, the live broadcast time could occur outside of normal business hours. If this is the case, please access the webcast on Demand at your convenience. Time zone abbreviations: ET (Eastern time – new York), CET (Central European Time), GMT (Greenwich mean Time- London), HKT (Hong Kong Time Zone), IST (India Standard Time), CST (China Standard Time) To convert a time zone to your local time zone, please visit the time zone converter site

I can’t hear audio

Double check that your speakers are not muted. If you are using external speakers, be sure they are turned on and not muted. Also, be sure your speakers are turned all the way up.

I hear an echo

If you are listening via a telephone, please mute your computer speakers

I can’t see video (when applicable).

Do you have the bandwidth required to view the video presentation? A telltale sign of bandwidth issues would be "freezing" video during the webcast. we recommend closing any unnecessary programs on your computer to minimize buffering that can disturb your viewing experience

Why do I get a "connection failed" or "connection blocked" message?

In addition to having a properly installed Adobe Flash Player, your computer must permit rtmp (over port 1935) and / or rtmpt (over port 80) live streaming protocols. Corporate users behind proxy servers should be sure their network settings do not time out rtmpt requests or the player may freeze after a set period requiring a stream restart. please contact your local IT Administrator if you are unsure of your settings.

How do I access the recording of this webcast?

Please go to www.conference-board.org/ondemand. Recordings will be available within 24 hours of the webcast.

How do I share recordings with my team?

If your company is a Guideline member of The Conference Board, all employees have unlimited access to our live and On-demand webcasts. They can go to www.conference-board.org under "webcasts", and browse the full list of available upcoming and On-demand programs.

If you have purchased a webcast, you have access to that one program for both live and on-demand viewing. Access cannot be shared with others.

I’m on the On-Demand page but I don’t see the recording, report, trailer, etc.

You must be logged in to access On-Demand resources. please log-in and try again. Some assets, such as highlights, may take longer to post. That link will be grayed out until available.

I’m logged in to On-Demand but the webcast recording won’t play.

You may need to update your flash player. Click herea to test your system compatibility. If prompted, simply follow the on screen instructions to complete any necessary installations.
