RadioDNS Holds First Automotive, Broadcaster Workshop

Roundtable event aimed to find consensus on creating in-car hybrid radio experience

Car and radio have gone hand in hand for decades, but the future of the two raises a number of questions.

The first RadioDNS Automotive and Broadcaster Workshop will seek to answer these questions at a one-day event set to take place on July 5. Featuring automotive manufacturers and broadcasters from around the world, discussions will focus on how to remove obstacles and accelerate development of the radio experience in the car.

RadioDNS has set 10 themes for the event’s discussions that it says reflects the growing demand from the automotive industry to deliver similar innovations to radio.

The themes include realtime content; switching to streaming; navigating the radio dial; recommending radio listening; program information; accessing on-demand and non-broadcast content; proprietary versus open; which data source is best; interactivity in the car; and fair use policies.

The workshop will take place at the European Broadcasting Union in Geneva, but it will also be available as an on-line web conference. General registration opens June 14; RadioDNS members have priority registration.
