Faculty and students at the Indian Institute of Technology Rajasthan (IITR), in association with National Instruments India, have developed the Intellectual Property (IP) for a Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM)-based Transmitter. This broadcasting system, developed by the international DRM consortium, has been proposed as a high-quality digital replacement for analogous broadcasting in AM and FM/VHF bands. It offers listeners a wide range of programming, with enhanced audio performance and multimedia services, like broadcasting text, slide shows of still and animated images, electronic newspapers, and weather and traffic information. The technology makes it possible for rural and remote parts of India to access both local and international transmissions.
