What's possible with Hybrid Radio?
RadioDNS provides the DNS lookup which enables additional services and applications to be built. We promote a set of open standards to enhance the listening experience.
Our visualisation application works alongside FM, DAB+ and HD Radio to deliver timely, relevant visuals alongside audio content. "Glance-able" content such as now playing information, artist images, news, weather and more can dramatically improve the overall experience.
Providing detailed information about radio stations and programmes in an open, standardised format helps power next generation radio user interfaces. Service following allows devices to automatically switch between broadcast and internet audio streams as reception changes.
When the listener wants to know more about what's on the radio, tagging allows the simple tap of a button to record their interest, with the ability to revisit the content later on an associated mobile phone, tablet or desktop device at a time to suit them.
Over 8,000 DNS records for radio stations
Some of the world's largest broadcasters, both public service and commercial, are running live services powered by RadioDNS right now...
