New metadata workflow for visual radio content from StreamGuys and Xperi

StreamGuys, working with Xperi, will demonstrate a new metadata workflow at the upcoming IBC. It assists radio broadcasters publish visual content alongside their online audio streams through the reliable integration of AIM Rapid and SGplayer, StreamGuys’ HTML5 solution for consumer playback and content navigation.

Both solutions support reliable metadata throughput and delivery to multiple consumer platforms.

AIM Rapid delivers visual content, notably album art, to radio stations alongside music track details, enhanced show information, news alerts and more. It can do so for FM, DAB+, and HD Radio™ delivery systems, as well as connected cars, websites and mobile platforms. StreamGuys ensures that the same album artwork is then used across all delivery platforms, including websites and mobile platforms using SGplayer.

Eduardo Martinez, Vice President of Technology for StreamGuys said:

This is an intelligent and interoperable metadata workflow that solves a very common problem for the broadcaster. Many broadcasters have immense song libraries with incomplete metadata, and Rapid intuitively steps in to provide that missing metadata as needed.

Interoperability with SGmetadata extends these capabilities to the broadcaster’s online audio streams, ensuring reliable transport through the CDN ecosystem and to the output for presentation on SGplayer. Working close with the Xperi team, we developed, tested and confirmed a solution within one week that is simple to setup, quick to deploy and consistent in service.”

StreamGuys will demonstrate the interoperable workflow between AIM Rapid, SGmetadata and SGplayer at IBC which begins on Friday.
