TechCon kicks off Radio Festival

Data over DAB, audio over IP and what the rest of the industry can learn from student radio were just some of the topics covered in the first warm-up event to this year's Radio Festival.

The keenest delegates for this year's main event in Glasgow have been talking technical all day and looking at some of the new technologies and ways of doing things that we may all be adopting one day.

There was an insight into BBC Scotland's completely tapeless library (there's apparently only one tape player in the whole of the Pacific Quay building); shared experiences from BFBS who have to broadcast in extreme conditions; and a full exploration of how technology can be best used to get information to radio listeners when they need it most.
