AIS integrated into VHF Radio.

Jon Eisberg ..... One advantage for me of having AIS integrated to the VHF, I don't have to be running a more power-hungry plotter to enjoy the benefits of AIS...

I've heard of this but know little about it. Think of AIS as a visual aid, meaning that the fixes appear on the plotter or puter screen. How does the radio present the information ?
