VidiGo and Panasonic combine products to demonstrate the changing of radio into visual radio at 2015 #NABShow

VidiGo announced that Panasonic has selected VidiGo’s Visual Radio Solution for integration with Panasonic’s new generation AW-HE40 & HE130 integrated PTZ cameras in the Panasonic NAB exhibition (Booth C3607). This exciting collaboration enables radio stations across the USA, to create a fully automated visual radio experience.

The world of radio is changing rapidly. New generations do not have traditional transistors but listen via various devices, and they expect more than just audio. Many radio morning shows are also broadcasted on TV channels. To accelerate this trend, VidiGo has created a powerful end-to-end workflow for Visual Radio, incorporating the latest camera technology from Panasonic.

VidiGo Visual Radio is the most advanced software solution in the radio industry. It connects with radio automation systems and fully integrates with the existing radio workflow. Visual Radio creates a fully automated entertaining visual radio experience and engages listeners and viewers through social media. The software decides when to play clips, interactive graphics, video effects and commercials, based on audio analysis and data from the radio automation system.

‘’What we do is something completely different. We talk about the third generation Visual Radio. VidiGo Visual Radio is fully automated switching, based on complex algorithms. It offers full integration with existing radio automation systems, to use any content available and visualize that, audio synchronization of video clips, and last but not least the integration of social media. Our solution is really an “automated Director” that is creating a compelling TV show out of your radio studio,” said Peter IJkhout, CTO, VidiGo.

Panasonic offers an extensive range of integrated pan/tilt/zoom camera systems. Their integrated HE40 and HE130 cameras bring an industry-leading blend of outstanding broadcast-quality video, smooth pan/tilt/zoom operation, and easy system configuration, including an IP based control protocol common across the camera line; for superior HD and SD video production and easy configuration.
