There’s a new and improved DAB standard in town courtesy of a recent review and revision from WorldDAB.
Carried out by the WorldDAB Techincal Committee, this recent update sought to identify obsolete features, clarify descriptions and update specific features to ensure the standard would be compatible for future needs.
The updated standards are the DAB system standard (EN 300 401 V2.1.1), Registered tables (TS 101 756 V2.1.1), DAB audio (TS 103 466 V1.1.1), DAB+ audio (TS 102 563 V2.1.1), and DL Plus (TS 102 980 V2.1.1).
A full write out of the updates made to the DAB standard is available here.
“The aim of the work was to review the standard and identify features that were obsolete, to clarify the description of features, incorporate changes that had been agreed elsewhere in the interpretation of features and update specific features,” said Lindsay Cornell, chair of the WorldDAB Technical Committee.
“The Committee also worked on creation of the DAB audio standard, identical to the definition in the previous DAB system standard, and the consequential changes to supporting documents to align them with the new version.”
