The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (‘The ABC’) has chosen All In Media (‘AIM’) to power its data services on digital radio. Digital services will launch on DAB+ in Australia later this year, with initial rollout to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
In a competitive selection process, AIM was awarded the contract to supply its EPG, Slideshow and DLS management software to run all of the ABC’s services on DAB+. Managing Director of AIM Chris Gould said this deal reinforces AIM’s position in the Australian marketplace,
Since the launch of our Australian office over 18 months ago we have been strong supporters of digital radio in Australia. Having already done deals with commercial broadcasters in Australia, we are delighted to now be working with the ABC to support their rollout of digital radio services. We are confident that our products are going to make a real difference to the digital radio experience.
Following the recent announcement of a global distribution partnership with Factum Electronics, this deal with the ABC is yet more evidence of AIM’s growing international client base.
