RadioDNS Officially Launched
A new technology called RadioDNS which allows internet-connected radio sets to gather information from terrestrial broadcasts has enjoyed its official launch.
RadioDNS enables an internet-connected radio to work out which station you are listening to over the air, and match that with the station's website and public information such as Now Playing and display the info on screen.
The PURE Sensia already uses RadioDNS to display visuals when you listen to stations like Absolute, Heart and NME; and uses technology similar to RadioDNS to display station logos.
More info about RadioDNS online - including a five minute video - can be found at http://radiodns.org/
A demo of the PURE Sensia can be found at
Getting slightly more like TV, I think it's about time there was a single piece of software for internet radio with an inbuilt station directory. recording and timer options along with presets, it could use RadioDNS and display those visuals too. Winamp although it has an internal Shoutcast directory should give you the option of bookmarking (presetting) streams, stream addresses aren't memorable.
