Sunday Special Focus Workshop: Post-convergence radio - Hybrid radio technical view and how to build (on) it

This workshop is the place to be to speak about post-convergence in radio, through hybrid radio applications and complementary approaches. Hybrid radio combines broadcast radio with internet distribution, thus enabling the addition of visual and interactive elements to the radio programme, such as branding (e.g. logo), information about songs or programmes, tagging of programmes, etc.

The workshop will showcase two main aspects of radio's technological development:

  • upcoming hybrid radio solutions anchoring radio's audio broadcast presence in a convergent world;
  • the challenge of fostering - at a local and national / European level - eco-systems favourable to the birth of "applications" exploiting hybrid radio solutions together with an adequate presence in new end-user devices (voice-activated devices, portable devices, smart cars, etc.)

The workshop addresses radio's technical teams and middle management in addition to the usual Radiodays Europe mid- to high management representatives. This workshop is organized by AER (Association of European Radios) in the context of the MediaRoad Project.
