Radio World told you in March about RadioTime and its CEO Bill Moore, one of whose business goals is to try to integrate AM/FM radio into connected devices.
Now Moore’s company has a business agreement with Kodak. The imaging manufacturer is promoting its Theatre HD Player, which includes the ability to find and listen to AM/FM radio.
“The small box enables you to view pictures and listen to music files and AM/FM radio stations all across the country over your TV and home entertainment system,” a spokesman stated.
This is one of several interactive content relationships announced by Kodak.
Kodak has integrated RadioTime’s online radio guide with pointer technology to search for and listen to AM/FM programs; RadioTime says these total more than 100,000 stations globally. A video demo at RadioTime’s site is here.
Separately, Torian Wireless selected RadioTime as the radio aggregator for its iRoamer Internet radio platform, RadioTime said. Torian provides iRoamer to OEMs for their portable Internet-connected audio devices, and will soon launch its own line of iRoamer-powered devices.
