“Building for the 1st Billion Listeners” event will include Digital Radio Mondiale news, updates on DRM+ trials and live DRM demonstration.
NAB 2013, Booth C2207 — Nautel Limited will host a DRM reception at NAB on Tuesday, April 9th from 3 to 5 PM at the Nautel booth. Titled “Building for the 1st Billion Listeners,” the event will feature presentations by DRM officials and Nautel personnel, and will offer an opportunity for networking with DRM experts. Refreshments will be served.
Recent developments in DRM include the world’s largest DRM30 deployment now taking place in India. 27 Nautel NX Series DRM-enabled high power medium wave transmitters totaling 4.9 MW of power are being deployed throughout the country as part of All India Radio’s conversion to digital broadcasting. In other parts of the world, DRM+ trials are continuing; a report on these trials will be presented at the event and a demonstration of DRM+ using a live Nautel transmitter will be shown.
DRM Chair, Ruxandra Obreja of the BBC in London said, “The Nautel events at NAB and IBC are always very informative and well attended. This year we have lots to share with the India rollout now in full swing and we appreciate Nautel’s contributions to the DRM Consortium.”
“AM broadcasting is facing challenges throughout the world but digital technologies are revitalizing the band,” said Hal Kneller, Nautel Regional Sales Manager – Europe and Nautel’s representative on the DRM Steering and Executive Boards. “HD Radio™ Technology and DRM30 can keep this important broadcast band healthy and take advantage of its wide area coverage and low cost of distribution.” Kneller will present a paper on digital transmission technologies for AM on Monday, April 8 at 4:30 PM as part of the Broadcast Engineering Conference.
Anyone interested in DRM transmission is invited to attend the Nautel reception.
