DRM, Eureka to be Discussed at French Radio Conference

Supporters of the “other” digital radio technologies – Eureka-147 and Digital Radio Mondiale – will outline the latest developments in digital radio at the annual Le Radio! conference in Paris this week. Five months ago at the consumer electronics show IFA 2003 in Berlin, the two organizations pledged to cooperate in fostering conditions favorable for both systems, in markets of mutual interest.
“DRM is a market-driven system, so we are committed to strategic alliances that increase listeners’ options,” said DRM Chairman Peter Senger. The collaboration paves the way for a new genre of combined DRM- and DAB consumer radios, thus combining digital AM/FM/and shortwave in one radio.
On Le Radio!’s Digital Day on Feb. 3, DRM will be featured in a session called AM/DRM: The Big Start. DRM expert speakers will include Michel Penneroux, Chairman of DRM’s Commercial Committee, Alain Delorme of DRM member TDF, Pierre Vasseur of DRM member Thales Broadcast & Multimedia, Gilles Schneider of DRM Member RFI and Xavien Nouaille of DRM member Radio France.
Joel Pons of the coalition DRF (Digital Radio France) will also speak. “France is a priority market for DRM.”
Annika Nyberg, President of the WorldDAB Forum, will tell delegates about new products and manufacturers expected to roll out across Europe in 2004.
Alain Untersee of DRM member Harris Corporation will discuss DRM and DAB in his session on digital systems.
