LONDON�Radioplayerhas launched a new ��hybrid adaptor,���a free software service for all 430 Radioplayer member stations, that will help improve their visual impact on hybrid radio receivers, according toJames Cridland, inmedia.info.

Listeners that already have hybrid radios (combining DAB and FM with extra features available via the Internet) will notice colorful logos and program information on their radios. Radioplayer uses each station�s existing data and images and formats the data in theRadioDNShybrid radio format.

The RadioDNS Hybrid Radio standard is an open international technology that links broadcast radio and the Internet. RadioDNS launched ��Project Logo���earlier this year, an initiative aimed at boosting the number of hybrid-compatible radio stations around the world. �Radioplayer developed its hybrid adaptor software service in response to this, and through Radioplayer Worldwide, will now offer it to other countries which use the Radioplayer system � including Germany, Ireland, Austria, Belgium and Norway.

The BBCwill also provide hybrid information for all its stations shortly, joining Capital, Heart, LBC and Classic FM, who have been publishing the additional visual data for listeners since 2013.

Soon, more than 90 percent of the live radio consumed in the UK will be compatible with the latest hybrid radio technology. Any radio that supports the international RadioDNS Hybrid Radio standard will now display logos and extra information for those stations. Radio stations can leave it to Radioplayer to provide this hybrid radio data, or, through RadioDNS's ETSI-ratified standards, can host this data on their own. The data also includes tuning information for advanced radio receivers currently in development, including Radioplayer's forthcoming car adaptor.
