All India Radio (AIR) outlined its digitization scheme during the 18th Annual Broadcast Engineering Society of India (BES) event.

According to AIR’s Additional Director General Yogendra Pal, two 1 MW transmitters at Rajkot and Kolkata are likely to be operational by March 2012 and an additional 72 DRM transmitters would be commissioned between June of this year and March 2013.

The ongoing rollout by AIR has gained the interest of receiver manufacturers, who were present at the event with their products. DRM member companies Nautel, Digidia, Fraunhofer, Harris and Thomson Broadcast attended the BES conference this year.
