The Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union will honor Peter Senger, chairman of the Digital Radio Mondiale Consortium, and director DRM, Deutsche Welle, with a lifetime achievement award at the ABU Digital Broadcasting Symposium.

The meeting will be in Kuala Lumpur, March 10–13. The award will be presented to Senger at the opening session of the symposium.

The ABU award recognizes Senger’s commitment and long-time contribution to the development of the DRM standard. The Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union says the DRM system has the potential to bring about a revolution in the radio broadcasting industry in Asia-Pacific region, given that many of the world’s large medium-wave and shortwave broadcasters operate there.

Senger started his career with Deutsche Welle in Germany in 1965 after finishing his broadcast engineering studies in Berlin. He served as chief engineer of DW, and deputy technical director, until June 2002. He has been the chairman of the DRM consortium since 1998.
