TVEyes, a monitoring service for TV and broadcast, has been on my personal radar for almost two years. In April, they launched Podscope, the logical extension to their product line. Their monitoring tools for broadcast are very powerful. If you are interested in having returned to you every on-air mention of your company, TVEyes is for you. You don't have to believe me, just sign up for a demo account. You'll know that Big Brother has arrived.
Podscope crawls the web and looks for podcasts. It creates an index against every word, creating a searchable indes of the contents. Using Podscope. you can search on a term, generate a list of results ranked by a variety of methods to find the most relevant podcast and click to play or click to download. This is very powerful technology. Full search of audio content is no small feat.
If you are a podcast creator, do note that you can submit your podcast to Podscope.
