The DRM Consortium recently concluded its General Assembly. Seventy people from 13 countries participated.
Chairman Ruxandra Obreja said the past year has been the busiest for DRM since the consortium was founded.
She reported “excellent progress” over that time in countries including India, South Africa, Indonesia, Pakistan, Brazil, Russia and Hungary.
Obreja also cited prototypes, updates and developments announced by receiver and chipset manufacturers including Gospell, RF2Digital, Inntot, Cambridge Consultants, NXP, Fraunhofer IIS and StarWaves.
She also noted the announcement of a project to test the DRM framework within ATSC 3.0 digital television, which would give access to DRM content on various devices and platforms.
And she said interest was strong in the recent trial of DRM for FM in India, which she called a success and which also featured head unit radios with both DRM AM and DRM FM integrated.
