RadioVIS

RadioVIS is a protocol for sideband signalling of images and text messages for a broadcast audio service to provide a richer visual experience.[1]

It is an application and sub-project of RadioDNS, which allows radio consumption devices to look up an IP-based service based on the parameters of the currently tuned broadcast station.

Details[edit]

The protocol enables either Streaming Text Oriented Messaging Protocol (STOMP) or Comet to deliver text and image URLs to a client, with the images being acquired over a HTTP connection.

The technology is currently implemented by a number of broadcasters across the world, including Global Radio, Bauer Radio in the UK, RTE in the Republic Of Ireland, Südwestrundfunk in Germany and a number of Australian media groups amongst others.

A number of software clients exist to show the protocol, as well as hardware devices such as the Pure Sensia from Pure Digital, and the Colourstream from Roberts Radio.[2]
