CALABASAS, Calif. — Xperi Corporation recently announced a partnership between its wholly owned subsidiary DTS and Radioplayer Worldwide, one of the world’s leading streaming radio content aggregation platforms, to develop and integrate DTS Connected Radio technology into future vehicles using the Worldwide Radioplayer API.

Utilizing a vehicle’s native IP connectivity, DTS Connected Radio delivers an innovative analog and digital (DAB and HD Radio) AM/FM experience by pairing broadcast programming with IP-delivered content. DTS Connected Radio aggregates metadata, such as artist and song information, on-air radio program information, station contact information and more, directly from broadcasters around the world to deliver an enhanced visual experience in the vehicle.

The Worldwide Radioplayer API builds on the Radioplayer Car upgrade system. The system automatically follows the listener’s favorite stations across DAB (in Europe of course), FM, and streaming, as reception varies. As well as enabling ‘hybrid’ switching between broadcast and streaming as reception varies, the new data feed can power features such as personalized radio recommendations, search results, and catch-up content.

“The number of countries adopting the Radioplayer technology is set to rise steeply in coming years, as more and more broadcasters decide to collaborate and pool resources. Automotive integrations are at the top of the list of priorities for Radioplayer, given radio’s huge importance to drivers, but they also develop world-leading radio apps, and innovative voice-control interfaces,” according to Xperi.

Xperi Corp. also announced a partnership between DTS and RCS, the world’s largest broadcast software company, to develop and integrate DTS Connected Radio technology into their family of radio automation and production platforms. The DTS Connected Radioplatform will enable broadcasters to deliver new services into connected cars of the future.
