Pluxbox: Visual approach to radio

A full suite of multimedia applications for making, managing and broadcasting radio is being showcased at IBC. Pluxbox’s Visual Radio range is fully integrated with websites, apps and other points of user access, which the company claims will help create multimedia radio experiences to grow and interact with audiences. These can be accessed on TV, via internet streaming, on RadioVIS, using DAB streams, on-demand and as slideshows.

Among the tools on display is pbRadiomanager which enables programme makers and presenters to create visual slideshows for digital radio through DAB+ and RadioVIS. Controllable at the push of a button, these are effectively apps – for weather, amber alerts, traffic information, and so on – made with HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. With the ability to contain dynamic data and be automatically generated in realtime, Pluxbox said they allow the presenter to develop a rich interactive relationship with the listeners.

It has also developed tools to help automate a complete radio workflow, schedule programmes and items, distribute audio and metadata over IP in a scalable fashion, and manage on-demand content.
Pluxbox looks after prominent Dutch radio clients such as 3FM and Radio 1 as well as a growing international client base.
