Apple’s iTunes expands service to universities Monday, January 30, 2006

In its latest move to broaden its iPod and iTunes franchises, Apple Computer Inc. has introduced “iTunes U,” a nationwide expansion of a service that makes course lectures and other educational materials accessible via Apple’s iTunes software.

The company behind the iPod portable players, the iTunes online music store and Macintosh computers had been working with six universities on the pilot project for more than a year and expanded the educational program this week, inviting other universities to sign up.

Internet access to college lectures is nothing new, but listening to them on portable gadgets is a more recent phenomenon of the digital age, spurred in part by the popularity of podcasts, or downloadable audio files.

Podcasting Real Estate Properties – Property Casting
By Ryan Matthew Hoback

Propertycasting is the filming of audio and video tours of real estate properties, for distribution over the internet or to portable devices such as cellphones, ipods, and other multimedia devices.

These tours are the next step in real estate marketing.

Real estate firms are always marketing their property listings.  It started with text letters, and lead to brochures with pictures.  Then websites were integrated and pictures along with 360 degree showings were available.

Now full scale audio and video tours are able to be shown, through numerous mediums.

In addition, propertycasting uses RSS subscriptions, which allows viewers to click a subscribe button once, and they will receive the new property listing updates from the agency, as soon as they make them public every time after.  It is the exact opposite of spam, and it is perfect for brokers with lots of contacts.

Here is an example of how propertycasting can benefit your firm. This video example was shot at a commercial property in Miami.  Propertycasting can be used in all areas of the real estate industry, Residential, Industrial , Commercial, etc..

Another great thing about propertycasting is its economic value.  Whether you are a single agent or nationwide firm, you can have a propertycast produced cost effectively.

If you’re unable to hire a professional firm to do your propertycasts, you can borrow or buy a digital video camera, spend a couple hundred dollars on some editing software, and use a $50 feed program to upload your podcasts to the web.  While this may take some technical savvy, and the quality may not be that great, it can be done relatively inexpensively. This makes it accessible to all agencies, regardless of size.

On the other hand, if you are a firm who has tens, hundreds or thousands of properties, it is not cost effective to do in house at all.

So utilizing a full service agency , allows a firm to produce a high quality production, that brands a firms image cost efficiently, and compliments their marketing activities.

Podcast Allowing Students to Download Professors’ Lectures Saturday, January 28, 2006

Posted by sarasotapodcast in My Favorite Tags.

The iPOD has the ability to play songs, videos, store photos and now allow students to download lectures. With students always on the go, the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) and College of Education and Human Services Professional Development Department (CEHS) are helping students make their classes portable.

Starting last year in September, CTL offered the availability for professors to connect with students outside the classroom through the use of the iPOD.

“The goal is to become mobile,” said Bryan Beverly, Sr. Digital Technology Analyst/Project Manager of Distance Learning/Multimedia Production for the CTL, who is one of the staff members making the download to the iPOD possible on campus. “Students can listen to the course content without being tied down to a computer.”

Create your own Streaming Audio Studio for Under $50.00 Friday, January 27, 2006

Create your own Streaming Audio Studio for Under $50.00
By Quentin Brown

Creating your own Streaming Audio audio studio has never been easier. There are so many great products around today that will allow you to produce high quality streaming audio for a fraction of the price it used to cost.

HARDWARE

The first thing you will need is a compatible computer. Today every new computer is already set up with everything you will need. A basic sound card with a mic and line in jack. If you do not have a sound card they are very cheap and you can get a good one from any standard computer shop.

Next you will need a good mic. These come in all sizes and shapes with different configurations however a general all round mic like the Logitech Noise-canceling microphone is fine for beginners. I suggest you get a desk top one to start with, as you may want to move into video later and so you wont want a headset in your videos.

Of course you could go up a stage and get a preamp with a professional mic but this will start running into dollars and the whole aim of this article is to help you get started.

Next you will want to get some cables to connect up your tape recorder and other audio equipment. Again the computer stores now have packs that will connect up pretty well any device into your computer to digitalise your sound. You want to record directly onto your computer however you can get those old tapes and Vinyl records into a digital format also.

SOFTWARE – RECORDING

Recording your audio is probably one of the most critical parts of this process and again you can get software that ranges from free to many thousands of dollars. For this exercise I suggest you download the free copy of Audacity. This is an excellent free software package that will allow you to record from your microphone or any equipment you have.

It provides excellent editing capabilities and also will allow you to edit multiple tracks and then combine them into one single track. For a quick overview of how to do this you can watch this video and also download the software

http://www.mp3soundstream.com/

SOFTWARE – CONVERTING

The next piece of software you will need for your studio is a converting program that will allow you to convert different formats. For example you may have a real audio file and you want to convert it to mp3. dBpoweramp is like the Swiss army knife for the audio industry and will convert just about any file to any other file format.

Convert from one format to another, just about every audio type is supported: mp3, mp4, Windows Media Audio (wma), Ogg Vorbis, AAC, Monkeys Audio, FLAC and many others whilst preserving ID Tags. It will also rip CDs for you.

http://www.dbpoweramp.com/

SOFTWARE – REDUCTION

If you are going to stream an mp3 direct then you may want to recompile the file to a smaller format. RazorLame is a so-called “front-end” for use with LAME. LAME is a great MP3-Encoder, it’s very fast, it produces high-quality files, has many advanced features (like Variable Bitrates and Joint-Stereo), and it’s open source. Unfortunately, it is a command line utility, and that is where RazorLame comes in: It provides an easy-to-use graphical user-interface which makes MP3-encoding even easier!

The best way to use this software is to get one file and compile in a number of different formats to test the size against quality.

SOFTWARE – STREAMING

There are a few different ways of streaming your new audio files. If you have Macromedia products you can simple organize this your self however there are some great third party programs around that will do it all for you at a fraction of the cost.

MP3 SOUND STREAM

This is a simple piece of software that takes any mp3 or wav audio and converts the whole file into a swf file and then attaches a button so that viewers can listen on a web page without needing to download any extra software. This is because the flash plugin is on 98% of computes and if not it will automatically detect and load the small plugin. This is great for anyone not wanting to get into all the technical aspects of streaming audio.

You will not need to reduce your files at all with this program as it does it all for you. This is perfect for anyone wanting to stream one file at a time and wants to do it quickly and efficiently. It will stream even over most modem connections.

MSIJUKEBOX

For people wanting to stream a number of files then MSIJukebox is a great alternative. This software lets you choose any number of mp3 files and then organises them using an XML file. By using the above free programs you can significantly reduce the size of these files to save on bandwidth.

Because MSIJukebox streams the actual mp3 you can also have a lot higher quality playback including stereo files. This is much better for those wanting to stream a number of very high quality mp3 files.

http://www.msijukebox.com/

SUMMARY

So there you have it. A complete studio set up for under $100. Just download all the free software and purchase any of the streaming audio products that you want. You can then create, edit and manipulate any audio files you like. You will also be able to add these audios to your website.

With the web surfer becoming much more “web savvy” than they were a year ago, they are expecting not only information but also an entertaining web experience.

Quentin Brown has been helping people add audio and video to their web sites for the pastsix years and provides a wealth of knowledge and expertise. http://beststreamingmedia.com/

Sarasota Business like to know How Does Podcasting Work? Saturday, January 21, 2006

How Does Podcasting Work?
By S. Housley

It has been said that in October of 2004 a Google search returned less than 6,000 results for the term “podcasting”. Today, a similar search yields more than 857,000 results. Like the blogging phenomenon, podcasting has come out of nowhere and attracted an enthusiastic following.

While some traditional radio talk shows have begun providing podcasts of their regularly-scheduled broadcasts, the bulk of the podcasts that have cropped up tend to be independent broadcasters who have a fascination with technology. As a result, some podcasts are a little rough around the edges. Nonetheless, it is clear that the technology provides a significant opportunity and potential. Even nay-sayers believe that podcasting is more than a passing fad.

Podcasting is RSS that is used to syndicate and distribute audio files. Podcasting contains an audio file in the RSS feed’s enclosure tag. An enclosure tag is used in RSS feeds to include certain types of files. The file contained in an enclosure tag can be: an image, a data file, a video file, or an audio file. Podcasting specifically refers to RSS feeds that contain audio files in their enclosure tag. The RSS version that currently supports enclosure tags is RSS version 2.0. All podcasts are currently created using this specification.

The benefit to podcasting is the fact that users can sync content with their media player and listen at a time and a place of their choosing: radio on demand. And while this technology is not limited to music, it seems to be the area that has received the most attention.

Podcasting is generally inexpensive to implement. Investment in a good quality microphone will ensure that the recording is audible. Depending on knowledge and experience, some podcasters invest in audio conversion, compression and audio editing software applications. Also, web space bandwith and software to create the feed for the podcast is needed. All in all, the initial expense is relatively small.

Publishing Podcasts
In three simple steps, independent broadcasters can have their voice heard:

1. Publishers create audio content, posting it on a website for listeners.

2. Create or edit an existing RSS feed including a link to the audio file in the “enclosure” field of an RSS 2.0 feed, uploading it to a website.

3. Tell the world that a podcast is available.

Listen to Podcasts:

In three simple steps web surfers can listen to podcasts:

1. Download a news aggregator or RSS reader that supports podcasting or sync a wireless device like an iPod with your computer.

2. Enter the URL of the podcast feed into the news aggregator or podcast management software.

3. As new items appear in the aggregator, review the podcast’s description and listen to those that are of interest.

As popularity increases it is likely many voices will be drowned out, but for now, an independent broadcaster with a microphone and unlimited bandwith can make a name, create an image and change the world.
