VIN’s Unity conference rooms are used for CE courses and Rounds sessions. At this time, Adobe Flash is a required component for our Unity conference rooms. Many tablets and all Apple products do not allow Adobe Flash. For those components that are not able to download Adobe Flash, there is an alternative with the Photon browser. For Android users, this app is available for free. For Apple product users, there is a small fee and the app is available in the iTunes Store. To learn more about this browser, check out VSPN’s FAQ on Photon.
