The Digital Radio Mondiale Consortium is getting set to highlight its recent achievements at the international Broadcast Engineering Society Conference and Exhibition in New Delhi, Jan. 17–19.
Under the theme “DRM Drives Forward,” the Consortium along with its members and partners, including BBC, Communication Systems Inc., Fraunhofer IIS, Gospell Digital Technologies, GeekSynergy, Inntot Technologies, NXP and RFmondial, will present the latest DRM receiver models and demo live DRM transmissions for local coverage on booths 72 and 73 in Hall 7B of the Pragmati Maidan convention center.
In addition, says DRM, visitors will be able to learn more about the latest DRM encoder equipment with full CAP compliance able to support the rollout of DRM Emergency Warning Functionality in India.
Three DRM sessions will also take place during the three-day conference, which runs alongside the technical exhibition. One of the sessions will feature a panel discussion focusing on the next steps necessary for getting receivers to the population in parallel with the introduction of DRM transmissions in the country.
“As the DRM All India Radio rollout makes India potentially the largest digital radio market in the world, the DRM Consortium is keen to showcase the many benefits of DRM emphasizing its local coverage potential,” said Ruxandra Obreja, DRM chairman.
“Digital radio DRM is already showing its superiority, as its features and benefits overtake anything the analog mode can provide. Using the full DRM standard in both AM and FM is the only way to make it attractive to Indian listeners, to the whole country engaged on the digital path.”
