Digital Radio Mondiale now features an educational video on DRM advances around the world on its website.

The consortium has also announced that it has made a selection of the board, which is made up of eminent members, for the first DRM Enterprise Award aimed at the Pacific region. The award, which was introduced at IBC2013, will be presented to an individual or organization that has “promoted successfully, applied innovatively and actively introduced DRM in a specific market.”

According to DRM, the winner will be selected by an independent board of specialists, comprised of representatives from regional organizations and from the DRM Consortium. The first annual prize will be awarded next year in the Pacific Islands.

“This award will be the first of an ongoing series of awards recognizing those who are prepared to explore and turn into reality the many benefits of DRM and digital radio,” DRM Consortium Chair Ruxandra Obreja. “The attractive features of DRM, like data services or the emergency warning functionality will offer new opportunities and applications that will meet real and urgent needs of people in areas like the Pacific Islands.”
