Go Ahead – Judge a Podcast by its Cover
Yodio Gives Online Users the Ability to Visually Personalize Podcasts
SEATTLE, May 5, 2008 – Yodio introduces podcasters the unique ability to
visually wrap podcasts. Much like an album cover, users can create cover
photos, producing a complete and total podcasting experience, resulting in
podcasts with the ultimate finishing touch. Using any image, photo or
piece of art, users can upload an MP3 recording and attach a full size (up
to a 10 MB) digital photo.
A survey by Storm/Universal McCann reports that 32 percent of respondents
increased their podcast use in the past six months.” Invisible podcasts
are ignored podcasts. Yodio allows online users to elevate podcasts to a
visually rich, personalized online medium. This new visual element
heightens the purpose of any blog or online community-to clearly convey
information to fellow online users.
This free service exclusively from Yodio allows users to embed a Yodio
player into any blog – but unlike other current methods, Yodio offers a
complete and visual package to fully encase the audio podcast. For
podcasters who want to go beyond the cover photo, Yodio can be used to
create illustrated podcasts using multiple JPEG photos or graphics to
attach a graphic to individual audio sections.
“Every picture needs a story; a photo plus audio creates a compelling
story,” comments former Corbis CEO and current ZoomAlbum CEO Doug Rowan.
“Photographs by themselves don’t really tell the stories. You need people
to tell the stories. Yodio is delivering on this need.”
