All In Media wins BBC radio text contract
All In Media has been awarded a three-year contract to develop and support a system for managing text and images that are broadcast with all of the BBC’s radio stations.
The project includes ‘visual’ services such as DAB scrolling text, RDS info and additional text content that appears on screen when listening to BBC network radio on digital terrestrial television.
Previously, a number of different systems have been used across the corporation – some in-house, some through external suppliers – so this new contract will aim to join up the process with a standard use of the same technology across both local and network radio.
All In Media is one of the leading suppliers of digital radio software and mobile phone apps to radio stations across Europe and Australia.
AIM Managing Director, Chris Gould told RadioToday.co.uk: “We are delighted to have won this contract after a competitive tender process. Our visual radio tools are already helping broadcasters around the world to deliver an enhanced radio experience to their listeners, and I’m pleased we’ll be working with the BBC.”
