All in Media (AIM), a global leader in broadcast systems and smartphone apps and part of Xperi’s family of companies, is pleased to announce that its Rapid software solution has been selected by towerCast to power DAB+ visual services in France. Rapid was chosen to manage DAB’s Dynamic Label Segment (scrolling text), slideshow, and Electric Program Guide (EPG) services on towerCast multiplexes in Lyon, France. This partnership represents Rapid’s first entry into the country.
AIM’s Rapid software enables radio stations to broadcast visual services across DAB+ and other platforms. Whether gathering information from news and social media feeds, web data or from automation or EPG systems, Rapid allows broadcasters to manage their visual content in an efficient and cost-effective way.
After the rollout of DAB+ began in France in late 2018, the implementation of Rapid allows broadcasters to take full advantage of digital broadcast capabilities by enhancing the user experience. Rapid software is available globally.
