Online demo & technical info of transparent DAB(+) distribution over IP

Radio is going digital – slowly but steadily. Currently, this happens in two different worlds: one of them being DAB(+) and the other IP streaming. DAB(+) is a sophisticated and efficient broadcast standard with many clearly specified add-on functionalities – but it does not support personalisation of its services.  In contrast, IP-based radio services can offer all kinds of direct interactions. However, using unicast for everything can be costly for providers and consumers. HRADIO has set out to seamlessly combine the best of both worlds, by making radio truly hybrid – on the service as well as the signaling side. More technical information and a demo can be found in this blog post.
