Xperi and LG announce development of DTS Connected Radio platform
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.
