RadioDNS to hold ‘radio in the car’ event

RadioDNS is hosting a one day event to examine ‘ten themes crucial to the future experience of radio in the car’.

The day will bring together automotive manufacturers and broadcasters from around the world and provide an open discussion of each issue in detail, looking to find a consensus view on how to remove obstacles and accelerate development.

RadioDNS says the ten themes reflect the discussions that it 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,” RadioDNS says.

The 10 themes are:

● Real time content

● Switching to streaming

● Navigating the radio dial

● Recommending radio listening

● Programme information

● Accessing on-demand and non-broadcast content

● Proprietary versus Open?

● Which data source is best?

● Interactivity in the car

● Fair Use Policies

Nick Piggott, Project Director of RadioDNS, said : “Broadcasters and Automotive Manufacturers share a common objective of keeping broadcast radio front and center of the dashboard, but their methods and motivations sometimes diverge, which is hindering progress towards delivering a really great, modern, experience of radio. In this workshop we’re going to facilitate open discussion about the challenges and who should be doing what to get the ball rolling faster.”.

The workshop, which is open to all, will be held at the European Broadcasting Union, in Geneva, Switzerland, but also accessible as an online web-conference. RadioDNS members have priority registration, and general registration opens on 14th June 2016. Representatives from major automotive manufacturers and broadcasters have already committed to attend.

More information and registration details are on the RadioDNS website.
