Meeting Notice

Hybrid radio comes to town

In a few months’ time, there will be cars driving the streets of LA that have hybrid radio receivers. Connected to the Internet and receiving broadcast radio, it’s the best opportunity we’ve had to evolve the experience of radio to match other media services. Hybrid challenges radio technologists to work together closely, across the industry and within organizations to make the most of the capabilities. We’ll look at what practically needs to be done right now, and what could be possible in the near future.

Presenter: Nick Piggott

Nick has spent the majority of his career working in the radio industry, initially in programming and then moving to digital radio and online innovation.

He created a much awarded multi-skilled team which launched the world’s first commercial DAB digital radio stations, and then went on to consistently deliver technology driven innovation for over a decade. Nick continues to play an active role in the development of DAB digital radio, most recently in the trials of open source DAB transmissions in the UK.

Nick is the Project Director (and one of the founders) of RadioDNS Hybrid Radio, which combines broadcast radio and IP together to deliver a richer and more valuable radio experience. RadioDNS works closely with the WorldDAB on development of open technology standards, and the promotion of Hybrid DAB/DAB+ to the automotive industry.

In addition to leading the RadioDNS project, Nick works with broadcasters globally on developing strategies and innovation to benefit from change created by technology.
