Apple has updated its multimedia broadcast solution, QuickTime Broadcaster to version 1.0.1.

The software is used to encode QuickTime content so multimedia producers can easily produce professional-quality live streams for online broadcast.

The update brings improvements to live-broadcast recording and streaming, along with an enhanced user interface.

QuickTime Broadcaster offers support for broadcasting ISO-compliant MPEG-4 audio and video. It offers the capacity to automatically save live broadcasts to the hard drive and prepares it for streaming for later viewing. The solution integrates with QuickTime Streaming Server, also available from Apple.

The 1MB download requires Mac OS X 10.1.5 or later and QuickTime 6.0.2.
