Radio broadcasters still reach the vast majority of their listeners with over-the-air (OTA) broadcast signals, but streaming audio is becoming an increasingly popular and important medium which broadcasters must take advantage of, especially when striving to reach younger listeners. New auto receivers are being designed today that make use of both OTA digital radio (HD Radio is the system used in the US) and streaming audio delivered by mobile broadband services. Smart speakers offer another big opportunity for delivery of broadcast content, both live and in other forms such as podcasts. This session will focus on the technologies and techniques being used to keep radio on the cutting edge.
