How Internet Radio Works
Online radios are devices that allow users to listen to online radio stations without the need for a personal radio. Internet radio is a digital audio stream that carries data transmitted over the Internet, usually over wireless connections. Streaming over the Internet is commonly known as web streaming because it is not universally transmitted over conventional wireless networks. Instead, it is sent as digital packets over the Internet using a standardized protocol.
Individuals or organizations can access webcasts through specialized software applications. Popular online radios include WEBRTC, VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), Automatic Transmission, AM / FM RDS, and Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). WEBRTC is an application developed by the Association of Normal Electronics for the worlds leading Internet technologies, including Internet Explorer and Firefox. VoIP is an Internet technology for delivering voice communications over the Internet using IP networks. Automatic transmission is the transmission of computer-readable text sent from a computer to a receiver that can be accessed through the appropriate network service.
Internet users can also access FM radio broadcasts. A typical online radio is capable of playing background music or news, as well as offering music through streaming audio formats. Multimedia messages, or MMS include images, video, sound and animation and synchronized games. AM / FM radio broadcasts are monochrome or color TV-type monoccasts.
