BBC national networks activate radioDNS

Radio DNS, the technical collaboration between the BBC, commercial radio and hundreds of broadcasters worldwide, has gone live on the BBC national stations.

The service, which has been under development within the BBC for the last two years, allows “connected” radio sets to display meta (i.e. now playing) data from the internet whilst picking up an FM signal. Radio DNS joins the two signals together to offer listeners the best of both worlds.

In addition, RadioVIS is live on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra showing enhanced data such as images, live text and data.

Blogging about the service, BBC Research and Development’s George Wright said: “This service went live at the end of last week, and has been an example of fantastic collaboration between the BBC (my team in R&D, others in Audio and Music, and Future Media) as well as the partners in the RadioDNS project.

“We first started working on experiments with RadioDNS around 3 and a half years ago and have learned a lot along the way. The services launched are only the beginning – now that the service is live, we can build on it with other, newer features like tagging, bookmarking or synchronisation.”
