RadioDays Europe has quickly established itself as the leading meeting place for radio professionals in Europe, and we’re here in the exhibition area, demonstrating and explaining RadioDNS Hybrid Radio to people.
On show we’ve got a variety of devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Express 2 LTE smartphones which feature integrated RadioDNS functionality. We’re really pleased that RTE, the Irish national public broadcaster, has put together a great set of RadioDNS demos with their service provider, All In Media. It’s great to be able to show all the clever functions of RadioDNS Hybrid Radio with local stations on the FM and DAB dials. All80’s Radio, the commercial DAB Radio station based in Dublin has also put together a demo of RadioVIS.
One thing that’s clear at this conference is the growing confidence that broadcast is a unique and powerful technology that we can use to keep connecting to listeners, and that it ought to co-exist alongside IP. Many of the session have talked about initiatives to bring broadcast radio into IP-enabled devices, specifically smartphones. I’m pleased that RadioDNS continues to be the global reference point for Hybrid Radio technology and standards, and that we’re contributing to or involved in those initiatives.
If you’re at RadioDays Europe, come and find 10 minutes between sessions to talk Hybrid Radio with us. We’re conveniently close to a coffee stand.
(Don’t forget that in two weeks time, we’ll be at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, NV)
