Xperi and LG will deliver the DTS connected radio by 2020 #NABShow

Xperi Corporation and LG Electronics have developed and will integrate DTS Connected Radio technology into automobiles sold around the world, with the first vehicle arriving at dealerships in 2020.
The partnership is with a major global car brand, to be announced at a later date.
Xperi will deliver to LG the DTS Connected Radio platform, which enables an engaging in-car radio experience combining over-the-air radio with IP delivered content.
General manager, automotive at Xperi, Jeff Jury, says “LG Electronics has been a longtime partner, and we are excited to work closely with them in developing a new generation of radio solutions. We continue to build on our longstanding relationships with car makers and broadcasters to create advanced radio solutions that deliver the best possible experience for people everywhere. The DTS Connected Radio system will be the first global system to enable car makers to create a common radio experience across different analog and digital broadcast systems deployed regionally.”
Utilizing an IP connection installed in a vehicle, DTS Connected Radio delivers an innovative analog and digital (DAB and HD Radio) FM experience by pairing broadcast programming with IP-delivered content.
DTS Connected Radio aggregates metadata, such as on-air radio program and talent information, artist and song information, station contact information and more, directly from broadcasters around the world to deliver an enhanced in-vehicle radio experience.
The cars could also arrive in Australia in 2020, and Snr VP, Radio, Xperi, Joseph D’Angelo, told radioinfo the work that Commercial Radio Australia has done with Amazon and Alexa “…really speaks to the innovation and investment that broadcasters are making across all technology.”

Joseph took radioinfo on a quick DTS tour of how the system will look in Sydney.
