RTL Group, a pan European media broadcaster, hosted the international consortium Digital Radio Mondiale last week in Luxembourg. The DRM Consortium held several committee meetings at the RTL Group headquarters in Luxembourg from Jan. 27-30. DRM is consortium of broadcasters, network operators, equipment manufacturers, broadcasting unions, regulatory bodies and other constituencies representing 29 countries. RTL Group has been a leading member since 1998.
DRM is a digital transmission system for shortwave, medium-wave and long-wave with the ability to use existing frequencies across the globe.
"We are very happy to have hosted the DRM meetings in Luxembourg and to demonstrate what we have achieved in DRM so far. Our technical center has been testing the DRM transmitter technology since March 2003 and is continuing to conduct very promising trials. RTL Group is defining its digital radio strategy but has already requested additional frequencies," said Thomas Rabe, group chief financial officer and head of corporate center.
