DRM Showcases New Radios at IBC
Publish date:

Digital Radio Mondiale is displaying consumer radios at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam Sept. 8 to 12.
DRM's IBC display follows participation at the consumer electronics show IFA in Berlin, where STMicroelectronics, Kenwood and Fraunhofer presented a working prototype of a DRM receiver. Proponents said the prototype paves the way for development of a low-power application-specific IC for DRM applications such as fixed and portable radios, car receivers, software receivers and PDAs.
On display at the DRM booth at IBC are a Morphy Richards DRM Radio, two prototype portable receivers by Himalaya (Power) Electronics Co., a W37 receiver by Starwaves GmbH and RadioScape's RS500TM DAB/DRM module.
Also, BBC plans a live off-air demo of an electronic program guide.
Several RF suppliers plan to display DRM equipment, including Harris, Nautel, Omnia, RIZ Transmitters, DIGIDIA and Thomson.
