If you own a Pocket PC and you are producing podcasts already - or you want to give it a try, AcroDesign's AudioBay Podcasting application for Windows Mobile Pocket PCs, which was released today, might be interesting for you. AudioBay provides everything needed to publish a podcast from a Pocket PC. Within a few minutes, users can record a podcast episode using the Pocket PC's built-in recorder and upload it to the Web over a wireless Internet connection for immediate access by the public.
Podcasting is the preparation and distribution of audio files for download to desktops and digital multimedia players, such as the iPod. AudioBay makes this process simple and mobile: users can record podcasts from anywhere and the software saves the audio in a file and then uploads it to the AcroDesign Technologies' hosting service. As soon as the podcast is uploaded it will be available to the public as an RSS feed to download and play on desktop PCs or mobile MP3 players.
- Simple podcast creation
- Generates standard RSS 2.0 feeds
- Generates HTML interface
- Includes free hosting for 12 months
- Includes podcast reader
- Location-based podcast search
"We are excited to release the first software to allow mobile users
to create and publish podcasts," said Scott Thibault, president and
founder of AcroDesign Technologies. "Podcasting offers a great new way
to connect with an audience and has already become a major tool for
communication. AudioBay enables anyone to become a broadcaster with
their own portable recording studio."
"AudioBay is an integrated solution that let my students use their
Pocket PCs to speak to the world," said Mark Frydenberg, professor of
Bentley College's intensive Introduction to Information Technology
course, where students use Pocket PCs to learn about technology. "Our
students served as beta-testers of AudioBay, providing them an
opportunity to experiment with podcasting and for AcroDesign to gain
valuable feedback about their product."
AudioBay is available for immediate download for US$ 24.95 but also
available as a free trial version.
