Speakers will include Peter Gordon, program manager, digitalization at VT Merlin Communications; Dietmar Schill, senior engineer and project manager, DRM at Sony International Europe; Horst Scholz, director, transmission management at Deutsche Welle and Siriol Evans, director, press & communications at DRM.
"We are looking forward to hearing the latest developments from DRM as part of this year's ABU Engineering Committee meeting," says Wayne Heads, technical director at ABU.
