Features

RadioDNS Hybrid Radio enables interesting and interactive features that work alongside your existing radio broadcasts.

Everything starts with the Lookup process that connects the receiver back to your radio station over the Internet.

Lookup

RadioDNS uses the existing Domain Name System to link your FM, HD, DAB or DAB+ broadcasts with your presence on the internet. We operate the DNS root server for radiodns.org to a published trust model.

Once you’ve established the connection, you can choose which functionality to provide your listeners.

Visuals

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.

Metadata

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.

Interaction

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.

Service Following

When the broadcast signal gets weak, switch over automatically to your station’s Internet audio stream. Using IP tactically can reduce data consumption, increase battery life, and improve the listening experience.
