Posted on Wednesday, Jan 04 2006 @ 21:30 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Creative today announced ZenCast, a new application for accessing, creating and transferring thousands of audio and video blogs for select Creative Zen MP3 players.

ZenCast provides quick and easy access to a wide range of interesting and entertaining audio and video content on the Internet. The experience begins at Zencast.com. The ZenCast home page reveals different channels with subjects ranging from world affairs to tech gadgets to entertainment. In addition to providing categories of specific interest, ZenCast also offers a "What's New" list of audio and video blog broadcasts, and a "Today's Top 10" of popular downloads.

ZenCast Organizer, specifically designed by Creative, seamlessly integrates podcasts and video blogs with select Zen players or a PC. The application enables viewing and listening to content and can be set up to manually or automatically download content to select MP3 players such as the Creative Zen Vision:M. Users can subscribe to top name broadcasts from companies such as CNET, ESPN, RocketBoom and the Singapore Straits Times through the ZenCast Organizer, and they can specify how often fresh content is downloaded. ZenCast Organizer also enables users to browse and subscribe to channels from other online broadcast providers. A convenient Auto Sync feature can be set to immediately download content to the player or the PC.

A beta version of the Creative ZenCast Organizer is available free today for all Zen Vision and Zen Vision:M users. The Creative ZenCast Organizer will begin shipping with the Zen Vision and the Zen Vision:M in the first half of 2006.

With new relationships with Yahoo! Music Unlimited, Soundbuzz, DIRECTV 2Go and RocketBoom, Creative continues to provide compelling digital entertainment experiences for Zen MP3 and media players. Creative Zen players also support Napster to Go, Rhapsody to Go, and Music Now for music, and TiVoToGo and more for video.
