Interactive radio specialists All In Media are supplying the technology for the BBC’s latest digital radio data trials. These trials, broadcast in Central London, will test the capability of the DAB platform to deliver data services to consumer devices.
The BBC are using custom-written software from All In Media to broadcast two data services ; a Slideshow service and a Broadcast Website service. DAB Slideshow enables a range of high-quality images to be delivered alongside the radio stations’ audio. For the trial, the BBC are broadcasting specially created content based around Steve Wright’s Radio Two programme. The Broadcast Website service uses DAB to deliver pages of interactive content to digital radio sets, with content for the trial including news, weather and sport.
Chris Gould, Managing Director, All In Media said
“DAB is able to deliver more than just live audio services to consumers. These trial services showcase the capabilities of DAB to deliver visual, interactive content to mass-market devices.
