TDF, the FM and DAB+ broadcasting operator, and Radio Screen, the data broadcasting platform for digital radio, have announced their partnership. The aim of the partnership is to help radio stations launch their operations on DAB+ broadcasting, which is expanding across the country, by offering an enhancement to their radio programme. As part of the partnership, TDF is giving its DAB+ customers the opportunity to test the Radio Screen service for several months.
The service, offered by Radio Screen, enables radio stations to display and manage customisable visuals and photos simultaneously with the audio program. This allows radios to illustrate music, presenters' interventions and advertising messages on the screens of vehicles equipped with a compatible receiver. Radio Screen has a catalog of artists' images, associated with millions of music titles, and manages all the rights to broadcast the visuals for its users. Finally, TDF has developed an interface for taking over the data streams delivered by Radio Screen.
