In January, SRG SSR hosted an ‘Announcements Workshop’ to clarify the behavior and functionality of DAB announcements.
The announcement feature allows a listener to choose to be interrupted by short audio announcements of specific and relevant topics such as news, traffic and weather. This workshop reviewed three input documents and discussed the issues contained within them and other issues that developed during the day. Subjects covered included broadcasters’ intentions, signalling audio coder for announcements, announcement switching signalling, and tunnel systems. Other items on the agenda were RDS TA and TP equivalence, controlling announcement switching from DAB to FM and OE announcements.
