Jungo has announced the pre-integration of Pandora internet radio, the leading personalized radio service in the United States, with the Jungo automotive software suite to enable rapid deployment for in-vehicle infotainment systems.
The joint solution will be showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2012 at the Jungo booth #30769, South Hall 3 upper level LVCC.
The integration of Pandora’s proprietary automotive API, Pandora Link, with Jungo’s MediaCore™ automotive middleware enables motorists to stream and control personalized Pandora stations through a car’s audio system via a smartphone application; it also enables the display of station and track information on the audio system screen.
Jungo and Pandora have worked closely to integrate the Pandora smartphone app with the Jungo automotive connectivity middleware. Development has focused on support for the three major smartphone platforms: Android, Blackberry and iPhone. Tier-one manufacturers in the automotive sector will now be able to license the software directly from Jungo for a more seamless integration of Pandora into their products.
“Using the smartphone as an Internet radio source in the car infotainment system is very appealing to many motorists,” said Ophir Herbst, General Manager, Jungo Connectivity Software. “This joint development illustrates that both Pandora and Jungo are serious about building mature, proven and pre-integrated technologies for the infotainment market.”
“Providing in-car personalized radio for our listeners is a top priority for Pandora and we are pleased that Jungo is helping to bring Pandora into the car by offering OEMs a quick and streamlined process for integration.” said Jessica Steel, Executive Vice President of Business and Corporate Development, Pandora.
