At last weeks EBU Digital Radio Conference I saw a most brilliant demonstration of how DAB+ radio really improves our medium.
A radio show was set up and broadcast from the conference. As guests were being interviewed, simple photos of them at the microphone were added to the programmes Slideshow output. As people across Europe listened their radio displayed a picture of that speaker in the studio.
I know this is akin to having a webcam in a studio which people can see on a website but there one important difference here; a listener can enjoy this experience on the radio itself, where it’s most relevant, without having to look up a website.
This works “out of the box” with a DAB radio, or equally as well for an FM radio with built-in wi-fi.
A short video below explains it very well in three minutes. Click, watch, enjoy.
