Are you a software developer, integrator or engineer from broadcasting? Maybe you are a service provider, network operator or manufacturer? If so, you will most likely be interested in our RadioHack community.
EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan
Every two years, the EBU develops a roadmap for technology and innovation activities based on the requirements and inputs given by EBU Members. The result of this roadmap is our bi-annual EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan. Strategic programmes and project groups are set up to focus on specific areas of interest.

EBU Project Group on RadioHack Community
The topic of RadioHack is part of the EBU's Strategic Programme on Digital Radio Platforms.
- Our RadioHack Community is a place where software developers, integrators, broadcasting engineers, service providers, network operators, manufacturers and more join together to discuss radio.
- Each year, we host a RadioHack event alongside the EBU Digital Radio Summit in February. During this event we take time to learn from one another, share best practice and open tools and contribute to developments.
- After the event, we make the tools available for you to use.
If you are interested in RadioHack Community, join our group on this topic and participate in the discussions. Some restrictions may apply.

This recommendation concerns the deployment of digital radio in Europe. Key words are DAB, DAB+, DRM and RadioDNS. The document also mentions broadband, linear and non-linear distribution, and the use of Band III VHF.
PSM organisations produce content and services for linear and non-linear distribution. A set of distribution requirements has been defined to ensure the desired availability and technical quality of PSM services across all platforms and on all devices.
This article analyses distribution and consumption costs of analogue FM radio, digital radio (such as DAB) and internet radio streamed via unicast.

It is valuable for radio stations to be uniquely identified and this recommendation is to broadcast the Extended Country Code (ECC), as defined in RDS specification IEC 62106, and DAB specification EN 300 401 in all terrestrial radio broadcasts.
There is renewed momentum across Europe behind the transition to digital radio, and more to come as integration in smartphones improves. In parallel, a hybrid radio approach combines the power of both broadcast (DAB+, DRM, FM) and broadband.
The pressure on spectrum in the UHF band, where DTT is mainly implemented, has given rise to the idea that Band III could be used for DTT instead. This guide tells you why this is NOT the case and how you can contribute to the discussions.
This recommendation concerns the distribution of digital radio in Europe. Key words are DAB, DAB+, DRM and RadioDNS. The advantages of harmonising the timetable for deployment of digital radio across Europe are mentioned in this recommendation.
