Digital Radio Mondiale is using both live and virtual events to highlight its presence at IBC 2022, which opens this week in Amsterdam.
Its theme for the show is “DRM for FM and AM,” promoting the standard as “the radio platform for all.”
“For those who will be in person in the Netherlands but whom we have not seen for some years, we have organized at RAI Amsterdam a ‘Meet and Greet’ with the DRM members and specialists,” DRM wrote in an announcement. That one-hour event is on Saturday, Sept. 10, at 9 a.m. UTC (11 a.m. CEST).
“They will be waiting for you at the Fraunhofer IIS stand (Hall 8 B80). At this informal get-together participants will be able to share news and information face to face and connect or re-connect to the DRM family.”
DRM says its main event will be held Saturday afternoon at the Nautel stand, Hall 8 C71, at 1 p.m. UTC (3 p.m. CEST). It will focus on DRM as a solution for FM, including information about FM trials in India, the multi-configuration in DRM for FM, new receiver solutions and transmitter improvements.
Chairman Ruxandra Obreja said, “DRM is more attractive and in tune with the needs of the world than ever before, with its energy and spectrum cost savings and some extra features and possibilities, like delivering education and emergency warnings.”
A pre-IBC Zoom event held today highlighted recent developments for the DRM standard.
