A couple of weeks ago some of us from BBC R&D and the EBU met up along
with Robin Cooksey of Frontier Silicon to discuss authorization and
synchronization for IP-connected radios.

As both of these issues are relevant to all the RadioDNS groups, we
thought you might be interested in the notes we made on the sessions.

You can find them here:

We'd prefer to respond on the list rather than direct emails to keep
further discussion public.

As auth is currently an active concern of the RadioTAG project, I
propose this thread continue over on RadioTAG Developers.

See you there!
