Best of Show: Super HiFi HLS+

The radio experience meets interactivity

We are featuring the products that won the Radio World Best of Show Award at the 2024 NAB Show. Winners were chosen by a panel of engineers and RW editorial staff for their innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. information about how the program works can be found in an FAQ here

HLS+ is a streaming technology that delivers voice tracks, imaging, ads and production but also offers interactivity and personalization without losing radio’s production values.

It combines streaming technology that is supported by billions of devices with a cloud layer of intelligence that can produce and orchestrate elements in real time. The streams are “active and aware” of the listener’s location, preferences and context. 

HLS+ encodes stations into a new streaming format, then connects those streams to audio players. Each listener accesses their station of choice, but the streams themselves have intelligence that opens new experiences from the stream. Listeners experience linear radio yet they can skip to the beginning of the next song without any production overhangs. Super Hi-Fi says almost any content can be personalized within the same stream.
