What is a Podcast Manager ?
In the world of audiovisual, the technology advances and start-ups florish every year. Indeed, since radio creation, listening techniques don’t stop evolving and it’s the web users who lead the dance. Recently, radios are in competition by what we call podcasters. Surfing on the digital wave, they use podcast to fulfill the web users’ needs to have access to informatin wherever they are. And companies have lost no time to get on this promising market. To allow podcasts to not lose their popularity, many of them got on the podcast manager market. But what is a podcast manager ?
Podcast manager, a real gold mine
To understand what a podcast manager is, it is first important to know what a podcast is. A very recent term also known as podcasting, it is a technique that allows audio and video files to be distributed over the Internet. So far, nothing innovative. However, it is in the way files are published that podcasts differ in that they are based on a technology called Really Simple Syndication, better known by the acronym RSS. This technique allows users to immediately listen to their files or download them and automatically send them back to their MP3 player for later playback. The question we can now ask ourselves is: what types of software can manage these podcasts? And this is where podcast managers come in. Also called podcatchers, they are software (applications or services) that make it possible to record and manage the podcasts to which the Internet user will subscribe.
Generally, podcasts managers are platforms such as Spotify, Soundcloud or Itunes that will allow you to download the files of your favorite podcasters as soon as they are online. The only condition for this to work is a good Internet connection. However, podcasts managers offer other features to podcast creators. Indeed, they allow podcasters to manage the editing and formatting of their file. The podcasts manager will support them and help them throughout the process of creating the final version of their podcast. Podcasters therefore benefit from many tools allowing them to make their podcasts more dynamic and attractive to the Internet user. Among other things, they will be able to delete passages, modify the podcast process, add text or images to create something visual or even develop a mini-teaser.
