LONDON�Anthony Sethill, the CEO of Frontier Silicon, on Nov. 3 received WorldDAB�s award for outstanding services to digital radio.
Over the last 15 years, Frontier has invested over $50M on the development of its �Chorus� family of digital radio chips � thefourth�of which went into mass production earlier this year.� These chips have sold over 30 million units – making them, by some measures, the best-selling DAB solutions of all time.
The award, presented by WorldDAB Vice President, and CEO of Commercial Radio Australia, Joan Warner, is recognition of Anthony�s contribution to the development of DAB technologies and markets over the last 15 years. �
Warner was quoted thus: �Anthony�s influence on the development of DAB digital radio has been enormous.� He has combined technology expertise with strong commercial instincts � often providing much-needed impetus to motivate a diverse range of players from across the digital radio ecosystem.� Anthony�s drive and commitment were key factors in enabling the successful launch of DAB+ in Australia and Germany.��
Anthony, previously a Vice President of WorldDAB, has also played a critical role in the international development of DAB digital radio � not only developing the early digital radio chips, but also being actively involved in the launches of DAB+ in Australia in 2009 and Germany in 2011.
