Layer: Final IBOC Rules by Early Next Year?

Layer: Final IBOC Rules by Early Next Year?

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.
