DRM Is on the Agenda in Las Vegas

DRM Is on the Agenda in Las Vegas

Digital Radio Mondiale front-liners will present how-to seminars for those thinking about DRM implementation; the presentation is called “DRM: The Basics in 90 Minutes.”
DRM members Continental and Harris will both host the seminars at their respective booths. There is no charge to participate, but registration is required. E-mail the DRM Project Office at [email protected].
DRM also is on the agenda at the NAB Broadcast Engineering Conference in two presentations.
The first relates to the use of DRM at higher frequencies, for local and regional broadcasting. This could be of particular interest in regions where FM spectrum is at a premium. DRM Technical Committee Chairman Don Messer will present “DRM Progress in Developing a Capability in the Broadcasting Bands above 25 MHz.”
The second describes work on monitoring the performance of digital radio delivered on HF over wide geographical areas. Andy Giefer of Deutsche Welle will discuss “Digital Shortwave Reliability Analyzed with Deutsche Welle’s DRM Monitoring.”
On April 25, John Sykes of BBC World Service will present a paper that he says introduces a simple signaling system for AM radio. This system allows existing AM broadcasters to signal their station ID to a new generation of hybrid digital/analog receivers, keeping them on the “digital dial.”
“An AM Signaling System (AMSS)” is part of the “Emerging Technologies for Radio” session.
