Gear and Software We Use

We get a lot of comments about the gear we use and how we make the show.

Here are links to the two episodes showing all of our gear:
“Show 144″:http://www.beachwalks.tv/2006/07/16/beach-walk-144-the-gear-show/
“Show 145″:http://www.beachwalks.tv/2006/07/17/beach-walks-145-calling-perfectionists/

As for production, we use “WordPress”:http://www.wordpress.org for the site, and “iMovie”:http://www.apple.com/imovie for the show editing.

We also use some plug-ins that vary from time to time. Right now they include PodPress”:http://www.podpress.org/ which allows us to post multiple versions of the show (to create enclosures) without screwing up the RSS feed for subscribers.

We also use iMovie plug-ins from “GeeThree”:http://www.geethree.com/ to create the overlays on the screen for show credits and our skype information.

We have “Akismet”:http://www.akismet.com installed to catch comment spam; it does a great job!

We release our daily show in four versions:
* Quicktime movie (480 x 360)
* iPod version for iTunes and iPods (640×480)
* Windows Media for the web (480×360)
* Windows Media for “Akimbo”:http://www.akimbo.com (640×480) which delivers internet content to your TV
