Pinterest Xperi’s Connected Radio Solution Renamed DTS AutoStage, Wins 2021 BIG Innovation Award CALABASAS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– DTS ®, a global leader in next-generation audio, imaging, and sensing technology, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: XPER) (“Xperi”), today announced that DTS Connected Radio, the world’s only global connected radio solution, is rebranded as DTS AutoStage™ to reflect the broad application of the platform within automotive infotainment systems. It was also announced that DTS AutoStage won a 2021 Business Intelligence Group (BIG) Innovation Award, which recognizes organizations, products, and people that are bringing new ideas to life in innovative ways. The rebrand to DTS AutoStage was in part driven by the opportunities resulting from Xperi’s merger with TiVo in June 2020, which enabled the integration of TiVo’s world-class music metadata and personalized content discovery engine. The new branding represents not only the many entertainment ‘stages’ the platform offers, but also how the platform will be able to amplify those stages as in-cabin technology continues to evolve. Additional features recently added to the DTS AutoStage platform already include lyrics, content metadata, and personalization capabilities. Also, the global broadcast platform continues to expand and includes major commercial broadcasters such as Entercom, Beasley, Cox Radio, Bauer Media, and Global Radio, as well as dominant regional platforms including FM World, Quu Interactive, Radio.com, and RadioApp. DTS AutoStage recently launched in the Daimler MB User Experience (MBUX). “The merger with TiVo enabled us to further develop our next generation infotainment platform into one that is truly designed to provide world-class content aggregation, that is immersive and personalized, on a global scale. The name DTS AutoStage better represents the broad scope of the product, as represented in new vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class,” said Jeff Jury, Xperi SVP and general manager, Automotive. “Our mission is to develop world-class in-cabin entertainment platforms and safety capabilities that are designed for the growing sophistication of the car cockpit of the future. With DTS AutoStage, we enable automakers to engage their customers with the personalized, multimedia in-car experiences they demand.” A recent survey of car owners confirmed that having entertainment/information available in their vehicle’s dashboard is more important than ever today, versus pre-COVID, and it confirmed radio’s pre-eminence in the dashboard, with 91 percent of car owners saying that it is important to have radio in their dash. 1 DTS AutoStage pairs over-the-air broadcast content with IP-delivered metadata (such as information about on-air radio programs, talent, artist, song, station contact, etc.) and content (lyrics, related events, podcasts) personalized to create a unique and engaging radio-listening experience in markets around the world. It also enables a seamless transition for the listener from broadcast to internet stream when the vehicle drives out of broadcast range. Available in 48 countries, DTS AutoStage’s content is sourced from over 48 thousand radio stations, 40 million tracks, 4 million albums, 1 million artist bios, and more – all aggregated, curated, and personalized to create the richest and most relevant in-vehicle radio listening experience. Business Intelligence Group, which was founded with the mission of recognizing true talent and superior performance in the business world, awarded DTS AutoStage with a 2021 Big Innovation Award in the automotive category. “We are proud that as we rebrand to DTS AutoStage, which is dedicated to innovating the in-cabin infotainment experience, we were honored with the 2021 Big Innovation Award,” said Jury. “More than ever, the global society relies on innovation to help progress humanity and make our lives more productive, healthy and comfortable,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring DTS as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.” In addition to DTS AutoStage, Xperi’s automotive technologies include DTS AutoSense, and HD Radio, designed to improve the in-vehicle experience, making it safer and more enjoyable. DTS AutoSense comprises occupancy and driver monitoring systems implemented at the edge. HD Radio, which resides in more than 70 million automobiles, is the most successfully deployed commercial digital radio system worldwide.

iStock/omersukrugoksuBy: MAX GOLEMBO and JULIA JACOBO, ABC News (MIAMI) — Tropical Storm Eta has caused major flooding in Florida after making landfall late Sunday night.The system hit as a strong tropical storm in the Florida Keys around 11 p.m. with wind speeds of 65 mph and slowly moved through the region, drenching South Florida and causing flash flooding in large cities such as Miami and Fort Lauderdale.Nearly a foot and a half of rain fell in eastern portions of Broward County, north of Miami. More than 14 inches of rain fell near Hollywood, and parts of the Miami metro area received more than 6 inches of rain, according to the National Weather Service.Eta has broken a record as the 12th named storm to make landfall in the continental U.S. in a single season. The previous record was nine named storms in 1916.In addition, the last time a named storm made landfall in Florida in the month of November was Tropical Storm Mitch in 1998.Eta made landfall in Central America on Tuesday as a Category 4 hurricane. Nearly 60 people died after torrential rain flooded homes from Panama to Guatemala, even spurring a mudslide in Honduras that killed several people.The system later weakened after passing over high-altitude mountains but then strengthened back into a tropical storm as it headed toward the U.S.Eta is now moving away from Florida, but flood watches are continuing for the southern half of Florida from Fort Myers down to Miami, and an additional few inches of rain are possible over the next few days as the storm meanders in the eastern Gulf of Mexico.The system is expected to meet up with a cold front moving from the West and will bring heavy rain from North Florida to the Mid-Atlantic States.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Back to overview,Home naval-today French frigate seizes heroin off the Horn of Africa French frigate seizes heroin off the Horn of Africa View post tag: CMF French frigate FS Surcouf collaborated with a Royal New Zealand Air Force P-3K2 Orion maritime patrol aircraft to make her first cocaine interception as part of the Combined Task Force 150 (CTF-150).Less than three weeks into its deployment, FS Surcouf made two narcotics seizures, with back to back boardings yielding around 400kg of heroin.Early in the morning on April 28, Surcouf’s boarding team began their search of the first dhow.

A LIFE OR AN ANCHORby GAIL RIECKEN, EDITOR OF THE CCO STATEHOUSE NEWSDiscussion over the payday lending bill, Senate Bill 613 is continuing April 9 despite Financial Institutions Committee members hearing a lot of negatives about this consumer credit bill.Groups that have testified against the bill – the Institute for Working Families, veterans, churches, community groups, and consumers- all favor seeing it die.So, why is SB 613 still alive?I imagine one reason would be the Committee Chairman is convinced that he can find the “sweet spot” that would please both sides. Another reason could be that members have heard the same comments I heard when I was a member of this Committee. The comments were: “Gail, you have to understand there are issues people have getting credit, and when they need money, more likely an emergency, there isn’t any in reserve. If you can’t pay the light or water bill if the car breaks down and you can’t get to work or there is no money to pay book rental and you don’t qualify for help or the a/c breaks down in the summertime, what choice do you have”.This may not be familiar to you and me but to families who are living one paycheck to the next, families who are at risk, it is a common fear. People living at risk of losing everything should be a serious concern for us all. It isn’t just the right thing to be concerned, it is the smart thing.No one can feel secure about the future of our economy knowing that over 43% of people in Evansville (39% in Indiana overall) are living near or on the poverty line, people who can’t afford the basics – housing, food, high electric and water bills, health care, child care and transportation.We can’t ignore the consequences of such a large number of people at risk.Maybe it is time that the Governor calls for a commission to develop new strategies to address families at risk, similar to his call from the comprehensive report on the status of children in the Department of Child Services. And while the government is doing more that supports our economy and results in fewer families at risk and fewer payday borrowers, you and I can do something in a small way to help.The legislature passed the law a few years back to encourage and “train”, if you will, people to save money. Called a Prize-linked savings account, it is a fun way that a family can save for an emergency.Not just for a family, the account can be for a young person starting out – a newly graduated student saving money to move to her first real job or a young person aging out of foster care saving for the deposit on his first apartment. As examples: Attached below is a news release from FORUM Credit Union in Indianapolis explaining their Prize-linked savings program.(https://www.forumcu.com/News/2019/FORUM-Credit-Union-Announces-2018-Member-Giveback)Let’s encourage more credit unions and banks to establish their “Indiana Save to Win” program and encourage more people to sign up.According to recent figures, the Indiana Save to Win program (prize-linked savings) is definitely a success. As of the end of January, there are 20 credit unions in Indiana participating (6 of them in SW Indiana) and there have been more than 2,500 “Save to Win” accounts opened with $9.2 million saved so far. There have been almost 800 prize winners winning more than $85,000 in prize money.In Indiana, the law allows for debt reduction and financial literacy programs to be a part of any Save to Win product.Institute Senior Policy Analyst Erin Macy asked the question in her testimony before the Financial Institutions Committee last week. “ Is the best solution we can offer them [Hoosiers struggling with debts they have] is more and even higher-cost debt? That’s not a lifeline”, she added, “It’s an anchor.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail

By Dialogo April 15, 2011 Ecuador seized 1.3 tons of cocaine hidden in pineapples and bananas that were to be sent to Belgium and Spain, the head of the Antinarcotics Police, Col. Edmundo Mera, announced on 12 April. The largest part of the shipment, 1,021 kg, was camouflaged in pineapples intended for export and had Belgium as its destination, Col. Mera added. The drugs, which were going to be shipped from the port of Guayaquil (in southwestern Ecuador), were discovered by drug-sniffing dogs, the officer indicated. “It’s believed to be a job with Colombians behind it,” said Mera, who reported the arrest of four individuals whose nationalities he did not specify. In November, 963 kg of cocaine camouflaged in pineapples were confiscated in an operation in which eight Colombians were detained in the city of Santo Domingo de los Colorados (130 km west of Quito). The officer added that anti-narcotics agents found another 289 kg of cocaine hidden among boxes of bananas intended for export, also at a port in the Guayaquil region, with Spain as their destination. On 8 April, Interior Minister Alfredo Vera indicated that Ecuador seized nine tons of drugs in the first quarter of 2011, compared to a record-setting 68 tons in all of 2009 (including 64 tons of cocaine) and 18 tons in 2010.
