We’re pleased to announce more detail of the rollout of RadioDNS’ Project Logo in Germany, one of Europe’s most significant markets.
German broadcasters have united to launch Radioplayer.de, a local version of the Radioplayer collaboration in the UK. Whilst the major German radio stations were already providing meta-data using the RadioDNS stations, the launch of Radioplayer.de extends coverage of RadioDNS meta-data to nearly 95% of the German market. This puts Germany on a par with the UK in terms of availability of RadioDNS services.
The first phase provides the minimum meta-data specific in our Project Logo plan, but we expect that to be extended in the future to provide access to more meta-data and real-time information using both RadioDNS’ SPI and Visual Slideshow standards.
The German broadcasters have written to the car manufacturers to encourage them to make use of this meta-data, and accelerate the integration of RadioDNS standards into the dashboard. We very much look forward to working with them to achieve that goal.
