FM Chips in Smartphones: An Evolving Landscape

Overview

3 - 4 p.m. EDT | October 5, 2016

Americans are consuming more audio and video on the go than ever before. Smartphones and tablets have become walking entertainment centers. But the convenience of on-the-go entertainment can carry a hefty price tag for consumers, given that most service providers charge for wireless data by the bit. With FM radio capability, a mobile device user doesn’t have to stream audio, but receives it over the air for free. During crisis situations when cellular networks can go down, over-the-air radio stays on.

FM Chips in Smartphones: An Evolving Landscape is a gateway into the ever changing mobile environment. Moderated by Brian Savoie, Director, Technology Education and Outreach, our panel will focus on trends in FM chip activation by the carriers and manufacturers, hybrid radio, and important developments in the area of emergency alerting.

Our panel consists of:

  • Paul Brenner, President, Next Radio
  • David Layer, Senior Director, Advanced Engineering, NAB
  • Steve Newberry, President and CEO, Commonwealth Broadcasting Corporation
  • Skip Pizzi, Senior Director, New Media Technologies, NAB
  • Moderated by Brian Savoie, Director, Technology Education and Outreach
