DTS Connected Radio will debate ‘The Future of Infotainment in the Connected Car’ and ask ‘Can broadcasters help OEMs win the digital dash?’ in an IBC SHOWCASE session taking place at 14:00 (GMT) on Thursday 29 October.
DTS Connected Radio enables an engaging in-car radio experience, combining over-the-air radio with IP-delivered content. It also aggregates metadata, such as on-air radio programme and talent information, artist and song information, station contact information and more, directly from broadcasters around the world to deliver a more personalised in-vehicle radio experience.
With DTS Connected Radio-enabled cars due to hit the road in 2021, this session will consider what the future holds for infotainment in the car and discuss what parent company Xperi is doing to empower broadcasters and car companies to deliver a great automotive entertainment experience centered on radio.
It will also consider how DTS Connected Radio’s approach to building an OEM-grade eco-system will help to maintain broadcaster relevance in the dash for years to come, and highlight the opportunities, challenges and benefits to consumers of an enhanced in-car experience.
Session moderator Sam Matheny, CTO, EVP at NAB, will be joined by Xperi Senior Vice President, Automotive Connected Media, Bob Dillon and SVP of Broadcast Radio, Joe D’Angelo. Nacho Seirul-lo, Director Program Management, NXP Semiconductors, who has been a RadioDNS Steering Board member since 2018, completes the line up.
