RawVoice Podcast Statistics Update!

The team at RawVoice have released their new Podcast Statistics Interface and new features to their 13,000 podcasters. As one of the podcast producers that have been exposed to this new interface for a few weeks, and the data that it brings to table I find the insight into my show pretty incredible.

I have relied on their stats now for over a year, and while the old interface was good this new interface and the additional data points they are sharing is worth the $5.00 a month premium charge.

Let me be frank I am probably biased here a bit due to my relationship with Todd, but the team over their has done a hell of a job with this. RawVoice in my opinion is very much under appreciated in what they do. They provide an awful lot to the community to help them build their shows, so I encourage podcasters to do as Todd says, please support the company that is supporting podcasters.

My show here is hosted on their high performance CDN, I run my audience surveys, advertising, distribution onto Boxee, Samsung Smart TV, Google TV, Roku, and probably more that I am unaware of. That’s only part of it, they have the PowerPress plugin as well. See for yourself what they have done with the new stats interface in the Video that Todd released earlier today.

HD Skype Podcasting Solution with Tricaster

Over the past 3-4 years I have been very successful in incorporating Skype into my various podcasts. Earlier this year I upgraded my windows based 2 channel SD Skype solution to one that is HD Mac based. I have depicted below the solution I am currently using. Be aware that my end goal was to always have the guest appear full screen in my video production and not just filmed on the monitor. For those shows that want to simply focus a camera at the monitor you can eliminate a large portion of this design.

I have a two channel solution, so you would need to double the gear shown here to have two people participate. You can easily utilize a different video ingestion system. I happen to use a Tricaster 855 for my studio.  Some content creators use a Video capture card from BlackMagic design to ingest the Skype video into there system for use with something like Wirecast.

Feel free to copy the design or improve upon it. If you do improve upon the design be sure to leave a comment on what you did to improve the design.

Gear as Shown:
Mac Mini (Base Model)($599.00)
EBTECH Hum Eliminator ($80.00)
Mackie Mixer (Any Mixer with Mix Minus will work)
Atlona HDMI Distribution Amplifier ($299.00)
HP Monitor ($265.00)
Black Magic Design HDMI to SDI Converter ($295.00)
Tricaster 855 or Other Video Injest Card / System
Canopus ADVC 300 Analog to Digital Video Converter

Note: When the Internet connection is slow, and I have two guest on sharing the same Internet connection sometimes the Skype Video reverts to SD this is Skype’s way of throttling to keep the video quality up. I  only push SD video back to the guest to preserve bandwidth.
