Moving toward universal standardization, Digital Radio Mondiale's DAB technology for overseas short-wave, medium-wave and long-wave has been endorsed by the International Electrotechnical Committee. The group published its DRM Publicly Available Specification (PAS 62272-1). DRM's digital AM system uses existing frequencies and bandwidth across the globe. The IEC approval, together with DRM's previous certifications by the International Telecommunications Union and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, puts DRM a step closer to its planned 2003 launch.
DRM will be on display at IBC 2002 in Amsterdam, and at the ITU's next World Radio Congress.
The DRM Consortium is made up of 73 broadcasters, network operators, manufacturers and researchers who joined forces in 1998 to create a digital system for the broadcasting bands below 30 MHz.
