Frontier Silicon Adds Features for German DAB+ Launch
Hong Kong - Oct 12, 2011 - Frontier Silicon has launched new software for its DAB/DAB+ platforms, adding advanced text and image capability with DL Plus and RadioVIS technology.
DL Plus is a text feature currently broadcast as part of the new national DAB+ service in Germany. Dynamic Label Segment (DLS) already allows a radio station to broadcast streaming text information to the display of a digital radio receiver. DL Plus builds on this capability and provides an enhanced experience by allowing the listener to choose which text content they are interested in, giving access to relevant information such as artist name or song at the touch of a button.
As part of the RadioDNS hybrid radio standard, RadioVIS enhances the listening experience by using an Internet connection to provide graphics and text synchronized with the audio broadcast by the radio station. Nick Piggott, chair of RadioDNS says he expects to see a wide range of hybrid radios coming to the market in the next 12 months.
