As the IBC Show in Amsterdam winds down, the folks at Digital Radio Mondiale feel the show was successful for them.
The digital radio format promoter pointed to a series of events it sponsored along with companies such as Ampegon, Nautel and Thompson Broadcast. It also noted DRM receiver releases from Gospell and PatronX that attracted attention.
At the events Nautel provided details on DRM transmitter installations in Hungary and India, while Thomson Broadcast spoke about its work in Morocco.
On the receiver front, long considered the weak link in DRM broadcast penetration, Gospell demoed a USB interface for putting DRM reception into automobiles.
PatronX announced that its eagerly awaited tablet-based Titus SDR multistandard digital radio receiver is ready for mass production.
The Titus SDR includes DRM in its receivable formats. DRM and Ampegon hosted an event examining the company’s efforts in promoting the format in Africa, notably South Africa.
