iBiquity Signs Data Content Testing Partners

iBiquity Digital Corp. is teaming up with Associated Press and Accuweather to test wireless data content for its in-band, on-channel digital audio broadcasting system. iBiquity, the newly merged USA Digital Radio and Lucent Digital Radio, has also added a receiver manufacturer to its stable of technology partners.

iBiquity Digital’s IBOC technology will enable stations to send a digital signal capable of delivering wireless data to receivers for a variety of consumer applications.

After the wireless data content is incorporated into receivers, it will also be included in non-traditional radio receivers such as personal digital assistants and smart phones all transmitted by broadcasters on an IBOC signal.

iBiquity has signed a technology and marketing development agreement with Alpine Electronics, which manufacturers OEM and aftermarket receivers, to develop IBOC receivers.
