Beasley Broadcast Group said commercial station Star 102.7 KSTJ(FM) in Las Vegas will broadcast a demo of an HD Radio multicast during the NAB show. The station was the first Beasley facility in the market to go IBOC.
With gear and technology from Broadcast Electronics and Ibiquity Digital, the station will air a digital multicast program channel alongside its main analog and digital channel, as well as separate data streams containing program associated data and two real-time traffic alert systems and other navigational content.
The multicast programming will be received by a Kenwood receiver, which will display PAD info such as song title, artist and other "now playing" information. The streams of traffic information will be coded by event, such as an accident or freeway jam and its location, as an overlay to vehicle navigational systems.
