International Datacasting said it has a $2.2 million contract from NPR to add a streaming audio subsystem to NPR's ContentDepot distribution system.
A key enhancement is the ability to inject metadata, including PAD, into files and streams. Info can be used for more accurate programming and eventually for text displays in HD Radio, it said.
NPR manages the Public Radio Satellite System, which is converting its program distribution system. IDC earlier won a contract to provide the file transfer infrastructure.
The new deal is valued at $2.7 million Canadian dollars, roughly $2.2 million U.S.; IDC is headquartered in Ottawa.
