During the digital radio session at AES, participants speculated about when the FCC might act on final IBOC rules for stations.
NAB's David Layer said he believes the agency - which has called IBOC a "de facto standard" for terrestrial radio to go digital - will act on the issue late this year or early next.
Skip Pizzi of Microsoft, who also contributes to Radio World, sounded a cautionary note, saying digital rights management is a cloud hanging over the content industry and until that's settled, the IT industry likely would resist getting involved in digital radio with both feet.
