Program For Improving FM Broadcast Information Display Announced

National Radio Systems Committee Announces Program For Improving FM Broadcast Information Display

Arlington, Va., December 13, 2004 – The National Radio Systems Committee (NRSC), a standard setting forum jointly sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), today announced a standards program designed to improve the display of broadcast information for FM radio.

The NRSC’s Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) Subcommittee has begun development of an Open Data Application (ODA) to improve the ability of broadcasters and receiver manufacturers to display song title, artist and other program information associated with FM radio broadcasts. This ODA is expected to be incorporated into the U.S. RBDS Standard, and the features that it provides also will be considered for incorporation into the in-band on-channel digital audio broadcasting standard currently being developed by the NRSC’s Digital Audio Broadcast Subcommittee.

The Subcommittee is considering two proposals detailing how the ODA would be structured. Interested parties may submit specific proposals for accomplishing this to the NRSC by sending them to:

Megan Hays
Manager, Technology & Standards
Consumer Electronics Association
2500 Wilson Boulevard
Arlington, VA 22201-3824
Tel: (703) 907-7660
Email: mhayes@ce.org

About NRSC:
The National Radio Systems Committee (NRSC) is jointly sponsored by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). Its purpose is to study and make recommendations for technical standards that relate to radio broadcasting and the reception of radio broadcast signals. The NRSC is a vehicle by which broadcasters and receiver manufacturers can work together towards solutions to common problems in radio broadcast systems.

Anyone who has a business interest in the technology being investigated by the NRSC is welcome to join the Committee and participate in its activities. Members of the NRSC are generally engineers, scientists, or technicians with in-depth knowledge of the subject being studied. In order to promote the free exchange of ideas during Committee work, members of the press are not allowed to attend NRSC meetings. However, members of the press are free to contact Committee chairpersons, NAB, or CEA with general questions about meetings. NRSC meetings are held on an as-needed basis, and NRSC members must participate at their own expense.
