LAS VEGAS -- An ongoing process of standardization and certification by the IMDA is set to further boost the already burgeoning popularity of Internet radio services. At NAB, representatives of the IMDA will be present to inform about the ongoing efforts and engage in a dialog with broadcaster on how to apply the developed standards.

Through this major initiative, the IMDA - a worldwide coalition of device manufacturers, broadcasters and aggregators - is seeking to make Internet station metadata more accurate and accessible for listeners across the globe. Among many other benefits, standardization will simplify the search for detailed information and eliminate the need for extensive scrolling in long listings. High-profile European public broadcasters - including the BBC, major German broadcasters and Radio Netherlands are among early adopters of the latest IMDA service identification specification.

At NAB, IMDA members will be available at our booth within the International Research Park in the North Hall (N3239) and in addition, steering board members will give an overview on the most recent activities during the NAB Radio PIT event on Tuesday, April 12, 1:30 PM in the Central Hall (C446). Also, John Ousby with vTuner will present the IMDA at the RAIN Summit on Monday, April 11 at 11:40 AM -at the Renaissance Hotel Las Vegas.
