German international service Deutsche Welle has launched DRM transmissions to India of its English-language services.

According to Peter Senger, director of DRM for Deutsche Welle and chairman of the DRM consortium, the commitment of the German international broadcaster shows that the DRM take-off in India is “on the right track.”

With the Indian government having decided to convert all medium- and shortwave transmitters to the DRM standard, Deutsche Welle programs are available in FM-like quality across much of the subcontinent.

During a DRM trial conducted by All India Radio, the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union and the DRM Consortium in May, Deutsche Welle transmitted DRM signals from its Trincomalee relay station in Sri Lanka.
