This event is part of the EBU Digital Radio Week, 11-14 February 2019.

Most people now use Digital Radio to refer to both terrestrial broadcast and broadband delivery of audio, with Hybrid Radio using an internet connection to create a better user experience: visuals, interactivity, linked content, richer information. With increasing levels of connectivity in cars and the explosion in voice controlled platforms providing new canvasses on which to paint a new way of interacting with radio services - what are broadcasters doing now, and what should they be doing to prepare for the future?

On February 13th 2019 the EBU's Digital Radio Summit 2019 examined these hot topics for the future of Radio, as well as showcasing a range of projects from our Members and others. Sessions covered insights from outside of Europe, including Australia and the US, as well as a discussion on Radio in 5G alongside broadcast. Presentations included:

  • Norways Digital Switchover (Marius Lillelien, NRK)
  • Multiplatform Radio (Eugenio La Teana, RTL)
  • Radio in the Connected Car (Laurence Harrison, Digital Radio UK / WorldDAB)
  • The second coming of the podcast, (Florent Latrive, Radio France; James Cridland,; Linda Rulle, Latvian Radio)
