Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) to Focus on Innovation with Exciting Information on the India DRM FM trial, Energy Savings and Data Possibilities.

The Digital Radio Mondiale Consortium will once again have a strong presence at the upcoming Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union Digital Broadcasting Symposium, 21-24 March, inviting you to a full one-day DRM journey.

The DRM Consortium Chairman will kick off the first ABU DBS day demonstrating why DRM is “smart radio” that enhances lives in the current challenging context (March 21st, Session 1, 1415-1510 MYT). Simon Keens of Ampegon will immediately follow with a presentation on how DRM is energy efficient in both AM and FM offering broadcasting a clear path for cutting the transmissions costs. By using a simple, original DRM efficiency calculator tool, the theoretical part will be completed by a hands-on, fast-paced demonstration that will address documented and personalised cases. (March 21st, Session 2, 1515-1610 MYT)

DRM Consortium will follow the two session presentations and will then give a full workshop on “Innovation and Extension of DRM in FM” (March 21st, 1615-1710 MYT). This will include the new and exciting findings following the comprehensive India trial for FM conducted in 2021. One of them is the successful transmission of up to 18 audio and six data services from a single FM transmitter with 600 kHz bandwidth. Receivers will be also addressed during the 60 minutes DRM workshop with details about the conditions for implementation in the cell phones, all completed with a quick world update. This fact-packed workshop will offer participants technically advanced updates with practical and immediate applications. Top DRM Consortium specialists like Mr Yogendra Pal, Honorary Chairman of Indian DRM Chapter and Alexander Zink, DRM Consortium Vice-chairman and representing Fraunhofer IIS, will take up the subjects and answer your questions.

“With our fresh workshop and insightful presentations on new developments and updates, says Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Consortium Chair, we will demonstrate the continued and enhanced relevance of digital radio and DRM in post-pandemic times and the current challenging media landscape. DRM delivers excellent audio, data, relevant content super-efficiently, ensuring complete and robust coverage for all needs, local but also national and international at affordable costs”
