Imagine a car radio that keeps on playing your favorite local radio station — without interruption — when you drive out of the station’s broadcast range. That’s the promise of Hybrid Radio, and Fraunhofer’s Sonamic TimeScaling technology is critical to its success. A Hybrid Radio switches from broadcast reception to a station’s web stream when the broadcast signal weakens at the fringes of a station’s coverage area. Fraunhofer’s Sonamic TimeScaling algorithm makes the switch seamless and uninterrupted. Without Fraunhofer’s solution, web-stream playback could be delayed by more than 20 seconds, leaving an irritating gap between the time that the broadcast signal drops out and streaming begins.… Read the full article
