Going Beyond Basic Metadata

Our technology group, made up of our members, works hard to fix problems within hybrid radio to make a better listening experience. It’s one of the perks of being a member, that you can suggest improvements and help implement them. Find out more about becoming a member below, as well as more about one of our latest advancements.


Our standards have proved very successful in fixing some of the longstanding problems associated with getting radio station metadata right. We think that’s raising the quality and lowering the cost of creating a better radio experience.

The existing standards are already capable of more functionality than many people realise, and we’re going to be educating people to those possibilities. We’re also developing new functionality by listening to our diverse membership and looking to find areas of common interest. Expect to see more about our functionality to allow listeners to bookmark and time shift interaction, and to get a fully seamless mix of broadcast and personalised radio.

We’re determined to make the combination of broadcast and IP the absolute best way to listen.

We’ll be contacting our members shortly about membership and our plans for 2024. If your organisation isn’t already a member of RadioDNS, then do talk to us about how it could benefit you. Whilst RadioDNS’ technical standards will always be free and open to use, we can provide more specific support to members, and our members get access to activities and events that can help them develop products faster and more efficiently.

RadioDNS is owned by its members, so you can influence the direction and priorities of the organisation.
