The new tech phenomenon is the power of voice – smart speakers and other gadgets where voice commands can access content. For the radio broadcasting industry, the growth of these devices and the voice ecosystem will require new strategies. Learn what some of the industry’s leaders are doing to accommodate voice-controlled radio listening in this fast-paced session. At the end of this session, a prototype voice-controlled radio, created under a joint PILOT-EBU project, will be described followed by a demonstration in the NAB Member Services booth (booth 76 in the Marketplace).
