Radioplayer is supporting a new way for car companies to access high-quality metadata from broadcasters and improve the in-car radio experience. Radioplayer, the not-for-profit radio platform that’s now in nine countries including Canada, announced its support for the new RadioDNS ‘ClientID’ standard at the WorldDAB Automotive event in Turin, Italy. The move will allow car manufacturers to improve radio interfaces by adding enhanced metadata streams, programs, logos, now-playing information and podcasts via an authenticated feed. Michael Hill, the founder and managing director of Radioplayer, says the platform’s top priority is to help car companies build better radios.

The IP Showcase, an education and demonstration pavilion at IBC2019, has called for presentations. Sponsored by a consortium of industry partners including the Audio Engineering Society (AES), Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), European Broadcasting Union (EBU), Society of Motion Picture and Technology Engineers (SMPTE), and the Video Services Forum (VSF), the showcase is a forum to discuss advances in working with media using open, IP-based technologies. The call for presentations is open to end users, industry associations, solution providers, and technology developers that can share their knowledge and perspectives on how developments in IP workflows are impacting the broadcast industry today and in the future. Presentations may take the form of tutorials, case studies, panel discussions, market and business case analyses, point-of-view or advocacy, and standards progress updates. The IP Showcase returns again this year to Room E106/E107 at the RAI Amsterdam during IBC2019, Sept. 13-17. The submission deadline for speaking proposals is July 12. More details here.
