GENEVA—The EBU will test ‘visual radio’ during the 2014 European Athletics Championships, happening from in Zurich from August 12th through the 17th.

EBU news is reporting that the Visual Radio Project, developed by Euroradio, consists of a slideshow showing live results and pictures of the event. The slideshow can be delivered on platforms including DAB+ Slideshow, available on certain DAB car receivers; or, via hybrid radio (RadioVIS/RadioDNS) working with FM or digital radio, where receivers automatically download and display images as they are produced; or, via the web using a Javascript component. The EBU has created a RadioDNS server for broadcasters that want to start using hybrid radio without having to deploy their own infrastructure. An English audio feed will also be embedded with this visual production and made available worldwide via the Eurovision Sports Live app.
