Better User Experience. More Revenue Streams.

RDS2 opens opportunities for stations branding, new revenue streams through advertising, and a better overall user experience for listeners. Characterized by adding 3 additional subcarriers to the standard, RDS2 will enable broadcasters to send small files such as a station logo or the cover of an album. This feature is part of one of several improvements to the standard, such as a new type of PS that allows UTF8 encoding of desired characters.
