GENEVA — RadioDNS is bringing together automotive manufacturers and broadcasters from around the world in a one-day event (July 5, 2016) to examine ten themes crucial to the future experience of radio in the car. In a unique format, the day will be an open discussion of each issue in detail, looking to find a consensus view on how to remove obstacles and accelerate development. The EBU will host the event in Geneva.
The 10 themes reflect the discussions that RadioDNS has most often between broadcasters and manufacturers looking to keep radio prominent and relevant in the car. As the driving experience becomes more sophisticated and more influenced by technology, these issues reflect the growing demand from the automotive industry to deliver similar innovations for radio.
