Creative today announced ZenCast, a new application for accessing, creating and
transferring thousands of audio and video blogs for select Creative Zen MP3
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
