A “podcast,” derived from the words iPod® and broadcasting, most commonly refers to an audio file that can be downloaded from the Internet to a personal computer or digital player such as an iPod. Podcasts are much more than song downloads—they enable original audio, video and other content such as pictures, software and PDF documents to be distributed by businesses and individuals to a broad yet targeted audience via the Internet. The benefit of podcasts over other typical computer downloadable files is that users can download podcasts and then listen to or view them at their leisure on any digital player in addition to a personal computer.
Podcasting is a rapidly growing market. In a 2005 research report, The Diffusion Group estimated there would be 4.5 million podcast users in the U.S. by the end of 2005 and they forecasted this number would rise to 11.4 million users in 2006 and 56.8 million users by 2010. This growth projection is supported by the July 2006 Nielsen Analytics report, “The Economics of Podcasting,” which reveals that more than six per cent of U.S. adults, or nearly nine million web users, downloaded at least one podcast in the past 30 days.
PodshowCreator is a premier end-to-end, high-performance network solution that enables users to manage, publish and syndicate their hosted online content.
