5 The Real Test of Being Digital The digital transition is happening, but not necessarily according to our script The digital transition is happening, but not necessarily according to our script OTA digital broadcasting is, so far, only a microscopic player OTA digital broadcasting is, so far, only a microscopic player In the end, being digital for stations wont be defined by how we transmit programs OTA, it will be in how we produce, store, repurpose and distribute content and how we build collaborations to achieve the cost and best practices profiles of our commercial competitors. In the end, being digital for stations wont be defined by how we transmit programs OTA, it will be in how we produce, store, repurpose and distribute content and how we build collaborations to achieve the cost and best practices profiles of our commercial competitors. Unlike OTA, being digital wont depend on the FCC, iBiquity or the CE industry; it will depend on our imaginations and willingness to change.

6 Vision for Applications Simple artist/song title data to share with listeners via the web or HD radio data display Simple artist/song title data to share with listeners via the web or HD radio data display Granular access to information about previous production elements for research, reuse, or distribution purposes Granular access to information about previous production elements for research, reuse, or distribution purposes Third-party partnerships for content archiving and distribution Third-party partnerships for content archiving and distribution

7 Content Management Technology Consistent way to describe content assets Consistent way to describe content assets Means of accessing those data (called metadata, about which more later) and the assets they describe Means of accessing those data (called metadata, about which more later) and the assets they describe

8 Access to Advanced Networks* Networks that can support multiple simultaneous applications Networks that can support multiple simultaneous applications Integrated storage and telecommunications Integrated storage and telecommunications Usually Internet Protocol based Usually Internet Protocol based Capable of seamless interconnection (peering) with other advanced networks Capable of seamless interconnection (peering) with other advanced networks *For applications external to the station

14 Providing Reach, Gaining Touch Public radio is a high reach/low touch delivery medium – serving up nearly 12 billion listener hours per year. Nothing our mission competitors do comes close. Public radio is a high reach/low touch delivery medium – serving up nearly 12 billion listener hours per year. Nothing our mission competitors do comes close. Mission competitors (museums, libraries, symphonies, educational institutions) are often high touch/low reach enterprises – they can see or touch their users. Mission competitors (museums, libraries, symphonies, educational institutions) are often high touch/low reach enterprises – they can see or touch their users. More and more, mission competitors are using disruptive technologies to expand their reach. More and more, mission competitors are using disruptive technologies to expand their reach. Arguably, we will benefit from increased touch with users. Arguably, we will benefit from increased touch with users.

15 Becoming Digital Libraries Stations now or soon will own technologies that will serve their own content management needs and be easily extensible to mission-related partners. Stations now or soon will own technologies that will serve their own content management needs and be easily extensible to mission-related partners. Stations have access to a broad range of content from national and international sources that is valuable to community partners, the sharing of which is enabled by asset management standards and advanced networks.
