”For this December IBC event, DRM is also going hybrid with an intertwining two events under the overarching theme “DRM – Smart Radio Accessible to All”.
Virtual and free, the DRM Consortium’s first IBC 2021 event is scheduled for December 1st 1200-1500 UTC (1300-1600 CET) and promises to be an exciting showcase of the practical advances of DRM in various parts of the world. The focus will be on the recent tests and improvements to the DRM performance, equipment, and receivers. New and older members of the Consortium will give a well-illustrated, quick, and global view of DRM so that you can get the best and most reliable information from the specialists, a chance for you to ask questions and see the great progress made by DRM in 2021.
The event hosted by the DRM Consortium will be completed by the live streamed Nautel hosted DRM event on Saturday 4th of December at RAI (Hall 8, Stand D43) from 1530 to 1730 CET (1430-1630 UTC). Together with Nautel, we are excited to return in person and invite everyone to this traditional and always successful IBC DRM event. Those who will be in Amsterdam will have a chance to get a real feel for and more details on some of the DRM developments already introduced before. The live event will be an extension of the virtual DRM event on December 1st but also a rich standalone moment. It will also be a chance to reconnect, network and re-establish the much-needed face-to-face contacts so severely disrupted over the past 18 months.
“The DRM event at Nautel’s IBC stand has become a space where all participants in the DRM ecosystem can gather to learn about the latest developments in the DRM world, celebrate DRM’s recent successes, and, as a DRM community, share stories, experiences, and refreshments “said John Whyte, Nautel Head of Marketing. “Join us live at the Nautel stand or watch remotely via our Facebook live stream.”
Ruxandra Obreja, the Consortium Chairman, says that: “it is the first time that at IBC 2021 we are blending a virtual event with a real one. By doing this we hope to enhance our IBC presence and also impress on all those interested how much progress DRM has made in both takeup and receiver solutions over these last trying months. It will be a recap of the great activities of 2020-2021 and a good starting point for next year’s decisions and steps. DRM is more attractive and in tune now with the needs of the world than ever, with its energy and spectrum cost savings and some its extra features and possibilities like delivering education and emergency warning.”
