  • If you are a musician that has tried to collaborate over the Internet, you know latency of a signal can kill the session. There are a few companies working on reducing latency – Source Elements is one of those companies. While you cannot do a live jam session without issue, you can do some pretty cool stuff with this software – record a track […]

  • Happy Tax Day! Happy Blood Moon! Happy Google Glass Day! Last week was a productive one as I was in Vegas for NAB. I learned a lot about broadcasting practices along with hardware and software that can improve even my systems. I got some great videos regarding items for podcasters. I even went out and bought a new item – the Tascam DR-60D – […]

  • *This is video 1 of a 2 part video While at NAB last year, I saw Mike running around the show with this device that turned multiple Go Pro Hero cameras into a 360 degree video of the show floor. This year Intel has invited 360Hero to come in and show people what they are doing to advance 360 video. I learned that 360Heros […]

  • I have been looking for an audio device that will take two inputs and push to the video camera. The Tascam DR-60D is one of those devices that can flip the bill. I was able to check one out while at NAB 2014. The Tascam DR-60D features High Quality Definition Discrete Architecture (HDDA) in the mic preamp inputs. You can record up to 4 […]

  • This week, Livestream announced their Glass app to stream directly to their services. I talked with Livestream and found that anyone with Glass and a connection to their servers can create video. I had to test it out of course. As I was heading into NAB, I turned on the stream. It was not without issue, though. The process to Livestream from Glass is […]

  • Final day at NAB. This is my chance to get around and catch the interviews I missed before. Especially for those audio podcasters out there. I’m intrigued how radio broadcasting is further from audio podcasting. Sure, you can get a radio mixer for a podcast but it would be a little overkill. Still, there are some who like sliders over dials – and are […]

  • Today I took the long walk to upper south hall of NAB. I found the Intel innovation lounge with an interview theater made up of recliner seats. You could kick back and watch as new guests were interviewed by the crew. Wish I would have been able to kick back, but I had to get to work. I spent the morning learning about streaming […]

  • I spent day 2 of NAB expo in the lower south hall of LVCC. Before I headed there, I stopped by the NMX lounge to watch Don Baine stream his event live. Andy McCaskey was there, which was a great surprise. I got to talk with him, Rick Calvert and Patti Hoskins from NMX. Lots of big booths and great products to be seen […]

  • Day 1 of the NAB show expo was informative and eye-opening. As a video podcaster, I checked out a lot of great items and new ways to create content. My first travels went to the North hall which saw a lot of broadcast specific items. These were hardware and software solutions which would cost broadcasters $10,ooo or more. While these are not things a […]

  • Do you put ads in your shows? As a podcast coach, I suggest you have something to not only show how serious you are with a podcast, but also to give a break for you or your audience to catch up. I have documented before on getting sponsors, however, if you are not into monitizing your show, then how about a PSA (Public Service […]

Finished all the SXSW videos this last week except for one (and there is a reason why – more later). Now it’s time to get ready for NAB! I’ll be heading out on Friday. Last night was a […]
