Digital Radio on agenda for World Radio Day
Today sees the Digital Radio Conference taking place in Geneva, with speakers from around Europe talk about the latest technology.
Hundreds of delegates are gathering at the European Broadcasting Union’s HQ in Switzerland, as part of Radio Week 2013.
The Digital Radio Summit will open with a look at recent EBU initiatives around radio, including a keynote address from Media Director Annika Nyberg Frankenhaeuser on the Euro-chip campaign.
EBU’s Head of Radio Christian Vogg will focus on the topic of radio apps, an area of growing interest for the industry.
As usual the Summit will feature updates from the associations: WorldDMB, Digital Radio Mondiale, RadioDNS and the Internet Media Device Alliance. A panel discussion featuring all four associations will ask what are the biggest threats and opportunities ahead for the industry.
During the afternoon attention will turn to use cases, including an insight into analogue switch-off plans for FM in Norway, the experiences of NPO of implementing RadioDNS in the Netherlands, and an update from the UK-based initiative Radioplayer.
The closing session, on future developments, will look at digital radio on the move, both in cars and on mobile phones, along with an examination of where the AM bands are headed in Europe.
