Join Emmis Communications for an educational seminar on its NextRadio app.
Emmis is planning an all-day forum on Feb. 27 at its headquarters in Indianapolis, and is encouraging in-person attendance of broadcasters, technical leaders, and radio IT engineers to learn more and participate in an informative discussion on how stations can be on the frontline of content delivery with the NextRadio app.
The goal is to help prepare stations for the launch of the app in Sprint cellphones later this year.
Topics will include an overview of the agreement with Sprint, a demonstration of the NextRadio app, a presentation of the options available for content delivery to the app, an overview of the technical requirements and set-up processes for TagStation, the cloud-based engine that supplies data to NextRadio, and plenty of Q&A.
“Step one of this Sprint partnership was to win the opportunity to prove how radio can be on the leading edge of technology. While the partnership is being finalized, these forums are a way to educate broadcasters on the expectations of Sprint in making the launch of the FM Radio App a visual and interactive radio listening experience for every radio station in America,” said Emmis CTO Paul Brenner. “You will be surprised how easy the process is to prepare stations for the Sprint launch whether the station is large market, medium market, commercial or non-commercial.”
Though live attendance is encouraged to facilitate discussion, seating is limited. Therefore the event will be simulcast via webinar, and an alternate webinar-only event is scheduled for March 6 for those that cannot attend in February.
