CALABASAS, Calif. — Xperi Corp. recently announced the commercial availability of the DTS Connected Radio API. The DTS Connected Radio platform will enable broadcasters to deliver new and engaging services into connected cars of the future.
The components of the DTS Connected Radio solution — the automotive API, along with global points of presence, automotive hardware and software development kits, and broadcaster support platforms — form an ecosystem ensuring a consistent service that can be delivered to cars globally. PoPs have been established around the world with infrastructure providers to ensure reliability, service performance and scalability across major automotive markets in North America, Europe and Asia.
Xperi has developed a hardware and software reference platform that supports all the global broadcast standards (analog, DAB/DAB+ and HD Radio) to ensure that automakers and their suppliers can develop and test platforms to accelerate commercial integration in production vehicles.
The development and implementation of a wide range of broadcaster interfaces to ensure broad integration with leading broadcasters around the world has been completed. These interface activities have enabled the company to efficiently work with broadcasters either through aggregators (Radioplayer, TagStation, Radioapp, etc.), open standards (RadioDNS) or directly with in-house content management systems.
The company has also released the Broadcaster Dashboard, a web-based content management system that provides broadcasters with direct control over their content in the DTS Connected Radio ecosystem.
Utilizing an IP connection installed in a vehicle, DTS Connected Radio delivers an analog and digital (DAB and HD Radio) AM/FM experience by pairing broadcast programming with IP-delivered content. DTS Connected Radio aggregates metadata directly from broadcasters around the world to deliver an enhanced visual experience in the vehicle.
