In cooperation with international partners, the IRT generates solutions for the needs of broadcasting sector and industry. Research on the TPEG specifications is coordinated by TISA (Traveller Information Services Association), in which partners from Asia, America and Europe work on numerous applications for traffic conditions, travel time prediction, parking information and public transportation.
Among the IRT’s tasks is to technically implement the editorial requirements of broadcasters and other service providers into TPEG applications. With its own TPEG software tools, the IRT is able to setup the entire transmission chain consisting of encoder, inserter and decoder in compliance with standards.
As a member of the BEST consortium(Broadcasters’ European Solution for Travel information), which represents the interests of public broadcasters for traffic and travel information services in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the IRT consults on technical issues, works on current themes on a global and international level, and coordinates the office in Munich.
