From the 24th till the 26th of January, the Salon de la Radio took place in Paris. The European radio show undoubtedly marks the middle of the radio season. During these three days, several presentations, lectures, meetings, workshops and demos celebrated radio in the historical building Grande Halle de la Villette. Together with MARCONI and FuturePulse, HRADIO organised a booth on the future of radio, showcasing different features of a hybrid radio experience.
At the booth, visitors were able to test demos of the different projects while being informed on the cohesion between them. While the MARCONI project focused on the value for radiomakers by showcasing the functionalities of the editorial tool built on top of RadioManager, HRADIO demonstrated the features of hybrid radio, such as timeshifting and cross-device, with a demo built by IRT and a car dashboard simulated by VRT. The focus for MARCONI lied on generating interest among radio stations to test the platform during the open pilots. The third project, FuturePulse, aims to help music companies leverage a variety of music data and content, through sophisticated analytics and predictive modelling services, to make music distribution more effective and profitable.
