Google+ studio mode hangouts: A Podcasters Dream Come True?
Earlier today Google announced a new feature to Google Hangouts, that can potentially be what Podcasters / Internet Broadcasters have been asking for. Google unveiled "Studio Mode" to its google hangouts service. Studio Mode enables higher quality audio: optimized for music rather than voice. At this point you must be saying to yourself "How is being optimized going to help broadcasters", Well it will in a few ways. While it is designed for musicians, better AGC (Automatic Gain Control) and higher dynamic range will provide much better audio than existing Google Hangouts. The bigger story here is the potental "Skype Killer" that Google may have in its hands. Internet Broadcasters have been wanting higher quality audio for some time now, however, only time will tell if "Studio Mode" will be the "Skype Killer" it has the potential to be.
