Slated for the morning of Tuesday June 18, the half-day session, which offered insight into digital radio standards, took place at Suntec Singapore, level 3, room 308.
According to the consortium, the event detailed the best strategies to adopt for a smooth transition to DRM, with speakers drawing on practical examples as well as experience accumulated in Asia-Pacific and other regions.
Specifically, DRM experts Alexander Zink of Fraunhofer IIS, Albert Waal of RFmondial and Consultant Sharad Sadhu shared theoretical and practical knowledge of the standard with attendees.
They highlighted DRM’s benefits and features (including the Emergency Warning Functionality), and also discussed network planning considerations. In addition, the consortium also provided demonstrations.
“This was the first time that ABU and AIBD had invited us to take part in such a comprehensive seminar,” said Ruxandra Obreja, DRM consortium chair.
“We are sure it highlighted the benefits of DRM by giving participants the chance to understand the features and assets of the DRM digital standard in a simple and practical way.”
