Metadata enables visual information, text and graphics
With metadata it is possible to display on the dashboard the station name and logo, the presenter, a song title and album artwork while a radio station is playing. Metadata also enables the development of a good hybrid radio user experience.
The WorldDAB User Experience Group has produced information and guidelines on why metadata is important for digital radio in the car.
The information includes two videos explaining the basics about metadata and a more detailed information sheet for senior manager and for technical staff to help with the implementation of metadata.
