Xperi Corporation and LG Electronics announced the development and integration of DTS Connected Radio technology into automobiles. The first implementation will arrive at dealerships in 2020 with a car brand, to be announced at a later date. Xperi will deliver to LG the DTS Connected Radio platform, which enables an engaging in-car radio experience combining over-the-air radio with IP delivered content.
"LG Electronics has been a longtime partner, and we are excited to work closely with them in developing a new generation of radio solutions," said Jeff Jury, General Manager, Automotive at Xperi. "The DTS Connected Radio system will be the first global system to enable carmakers to create a common radio experience across different analog and digital broadcast systems deployed regionally."
Using an IP connection installed in a vehicle, DTS Connected Radio delivers an analog and digital (DAB and HD Radio) FM experience by pairing broadcast programming with IP-delivered content. DTS Connected Radio aggregates metadata, such as on-air radio program and talent information, artist and song information, station contact information, and more, directly from broadcasters.
