37. DAB Personal LAB

38. Licensing Design

39. Adopt Royalty-Free Tech In broadcasting: most standards require non-RF tech Must pay

royalties for most CODECS - Can't distribute free software implementations at large Foster adoption of RF tech in standards CRC mmbTools now includes CELT wideband audio CODEC for DAB 40. mmbTools Community Tweak USRP for appropriate bands Build power amplifier 8 streaming internet radio into CRC mmbTools FM modulator with USRP + Gnu Radio Companion Receiver manufacturers Pre-market field trials 41. Future Projects? 42. New Software Receiver Platforms IGEPv2 Beagleboard Zoom ... SDR? Multistandard? Mobile Hotspot Wifi

43. FM + RDS in mobile devices GSM Phones HTC 45

44. Other Potential Projects Live CD: Support more standards: FM/RDS, ATSC/MH,

Update tu recent Ubuntu releases (LTS) Openmokast: Bcast chipsets into open phones Openmokast: Port to Android New broadcast apps Royalty-free codecs: audio, video (CELT, Theora) OpenBTS as return link Broadcast apps in App Stores Microbroadcasting: events, Field trial: 3G radio reception ?

45. Internet Radio Apps for iPhone Apple, iTunes Store 47

46. Internet Radio Standardisation - Central listings of radio stations - Detailed stations info + more... - CE devices and others - Managed vs unmanaged - Free vs licensed FM Radio Unique internet link Internet radio unmanaged, free Internet radio + DAB + FM + ... Managed, licensed 48

47. Conclusions Broadcasting = One-to-many Telecom Business models for broadcasting still evolving Open & RF & Software and Generic HW = democratisation = rapid innovation cycles, adoption, QoL Other platforms coming: Internet, 3G, LTE, Wimax,... Identified potential R&D projects 49
