Sony has lent its support to both the World DAB forum and the Digital Radio Mondiale consortium by joining the commercial arms of both organizations. Sony has been a member of both groups for many years in creating the digital standards that underpin Eureka-147 and DRM.
Now, Sony is committing to support to commercialization of both technologies. "We are actively supporting the spread of digital radio broadcasting in Europe and through our partnership with members of DAB and DRM we believe we can expand the use of digital radio in Europe," said Fenno de Boer, group marketing manager business developments, Sony Personal Audio Europe.
Sony claims it launched the world's first transistor radio for the mass market in 1955.
It aims to bring portable digital radio receivers to Europe in early 2004.
