Streemr - Everywhere your own radio

About

Motive

Listen to your favorite radio program is not always and everywhere possible. Sometimes you can't listen live because you are too busy with other things. Then again you don’t have the correct device to play a podcast or other audio file. However, having the appropriate device isn’t always soul saving. It’s also possible that there is no internet connection or the FM reception of your favorite station is simply too bad.

Today we have a lot of possibilities, however it’s not necessarily easier!

Innovation Goal

Streemr is a new radio service for the Flemish media that wants to give users the ability to create their own digital radio offer/catalogue via various platforms. At the same time, this service offers a useful overview of program schedules from the Flemish radio-range. Each user gets a ' private cloud ' to his disposal where his recordings are preserved.

Methodology

By means of a survey we map the current situation and use. A field test with an app (web and mobile), and a workshop/brainstorming with potential users then establishes more clarity about possible opportunities.

Duration of the project

The project runs from 01/02/2012 - 30/04/2012.
