Two of the UK’s leading broadcast technology businesses, Factum Radioscape and All in Media (AIM), have announced a licensing, development and partnership deal for RAPID, the digital radio visual content software.
RAPID allows information feeds – such as data from news and social media, web data or song information from music automation or playout systems – to be converted and broadcast as visual content efficiently and effectively via DAB/DAB+, significantly enhancing the listener’s digital radio experience.
RAPID was developed by AIM, the leading supplier of Smartphone Apps and visual broadcast systems. Factum Radioscape is the world’s leading digital radio broadcast technology company and offers a wide range of multiplex & monitoring solutions for DAB and DAB+.
The two companies are together on the Factum Radioscape in Hall 8, stand D.90 at the IBC in Amsterdam from Friday 11th September 2015, to give advice and demonstrations of RAPID.
Tom Durkin, Managing Director of Factum Radioscape said “With DAB growing faster than ever, we are delighted to be working with RAPID. It is a great product and works brilliantly alongside our multiplex systems. We will offer the existing product directly to our customers and also work with the team at AIM to develop bespoke solutions and applications. We look forward to sharing with our customers how RAPID can add to their digital radio offer”.
Chris Gould, CEO, AIM; said “We are looking forward to working with Factum Radioscape’s global network of broadcast customers to highlight the visual content capabilities of DAB/DAB+. This deal allows us to showcase our market leading software to a large number of potential new customers.”
