Apple Intros Podcast Producer 2

Jun 8th, 2009 | By | Category: Podcasting Software

Apple today introduced Podcast Producer 2, part of Snow Leopard Server. Podcast Producer 2 is designed to be an end-to-end solution for encoding, publishing, and distributing podcasts.

Snow Leopard Server adds two new video capture features:

  • dual-source capture, enabling you to create picture-in-picture podcasts using Apple-designed templates or your own layout; and
  • web capture, which lets you capture video by controlling remote cameras and microphones through any modern web browser on your Mac, PC, or iPhone.

To automate the completion and publishing of podcasts, you can create your own workflow with Podcast Composer. It offers an Automator-style graphical interface that lets you choose introductory, title, and exit videos; specify different effects and transitions between videos; and add watermarks and overlays to podcast content.

Once the podcast is complete, Podcast Producer 2 automatically publishes the content in the format you choose and to the location you’ve specified.

    I personally would like to purchase this application to use for podcasting, but it is only available with the purchase of the OS X server at $499???

    What’s the deal?

    $499 is a deal for the sophisticated workflow and processing Podcast Producer 2 brings.

    Does anyone know if podcast producer 2 creates video chapter markers with thumbnails, as in a movie purchased from Itunes?

    There is some pretty good content over at MacLearning.org on Podcast Producer and iTunes U. MacLearning is tied in with Apple in terms of producing webcasts that provide a Q&A session with the actual Apple engineers. See http://maclearning.org/articles.php?tag=podcast%20producer.
