At both the Podcast Academy and the Podcast Expo, we have been showing people The Levelator. We promised it would be available by Saturday and I am pleased to report that slightly after midnight it went live. Those of you who have seen it and asked about availability it is here. If you don’t know about what it is, or what it does, follow the link; Doug Kaye has done a good job of explaining why podcasters are so excited about The Levelator. Did I mention it is free? [Link]
As those who are listening to the podcast content we feature on the GIgaVox Media Network know, we have been fortunate to have some great sponsors jump aboard quickly. What is particularly pleasing to me is that both companies that are sponsoring the series on the Podcast Academy channel are companies that I have been doing business with since I started podcasting. My first digital recorder was a Marantz PMD 670 (I now own three Marantz units) and I have bought all my audio processing gear from BSW. It is nice to see that they both recognize the potential in the podcast marketplace.
I updated the Speaking engagements page earlier this week. Late September / early October is going to be busy. Lots of exciting GigaVox stuff happening and, in addition to the Podcast Academy and Portable Media Expo presentations, I have been asked to address the Public Television DTV Symposium in Iowa in early October. (Quite an impressive list of sponsors.)
Craig Syverson from gruntmedia put together a great promo video for our upcoming Podcast Academy. We have worked hard to make this the best Academy yet with instructors including including Leo Laporte, Alex Lindsay, Denise Howell, Craig Syverson and others. There is still some space left if you want to learn all about corporate uses, podcast consulting and video podcasting. See you there. [link]
I posted an interview with Larry Gerbrandt, Senior Vice President of Nielsen Analytics on the Behind The Mic series on the Podcast Academy channel. If you follow podcasting you might find his explanation and analysis of the data they gathered interesting. The study attracted some attention when it was first released regarding the numbers published in the press release.
