Erlangen, Germany - Sep 1, 2011 - Fraunhofer IIS has released the MultimediaPlayer for the digital radio standards Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM30/DRM+) and DAB (DAB Classic/DAB+). The software enables device manufacturers of PC-based receiver systems and smartphones to play back digital radio programs, and to integrate them with the variety of data services offered by digital radio.

The Fraunhofer MultimediaPlayer software is available for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac and Linux. The user interface is based on HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and can therefore be adapted to customers' platforms and existing product designs. The software is available as a desktop and a server version. While the desktop version is suitable for integration into devices, the server version supports remote access through a regular Web browser to the full user interface including audio playback.

As an example, The Noxon DAB Stick by Terratec, released in August 2011, is one of the first commercially available receivers with MultimediaPlayer software. It is also the first DAB receiver that displays Journaline, the advanced text information standard for news over digital broadcast systems.
