Digital Radio Receivers

DAB/DAB+/DMB receivers offer the listener easy tuning by station name and features such as track and artist information; some have internet radio, iPod docks and even pause, rewind and record.  Digital radios are increasingly differentiated from analogue FM radios through additional services such as slideshow and EPG functionality, offering greater listener engagement.  

Receivers come in a variety of shapes and sizes

  • low-cost entry-price products enabled by cost reduction through increased silicon intregration
  • clock radios and docker radios enabled by increased processing capabilities
  • ultra portables and handheld digital radios enabled by the reduction in power consumption and size

Additional Services and Visual Functionality

Broadcasters are making increased use of visual functionality to provide information on programming, now playing, promotion of broadcaster websites, competitions and registration features. Advertisers can use colour screens to display special offers, product photos, advertiser's logos, store locations, opening hours - all delivered efficiently and effectively via broadcast digital radio. Consumers are now able to purchase low cost DAB/ DAB+ receivers from 15 Euro (17 USD) and prices are expected to drop even further. 

Connectivity

Digital radio is taking advantage of connectivity through a network connection, often wirelessly.  This provides increased offerings in terms of content to the listener and also provides the potential for interactivity which opens up a broad range of possibilities for exciting new services such as real time voting to be available via the radio.
