The Digital Radio Mondiale Consortium will be fully involved in the upcoming Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union Digital Broadcasting Symposium to be held from March 6–9 at the Royale Chulan in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
DRM Chairman Ruxandra Obreja will give an update on advanced DRM solutions on the first day of the conference, while on the second day DRM Vice-Chairman, Alexander Zink, Fraunhofer IIS, will expand on the possibilities of bringing free-to-air Journaline advanced text services to DRM receivers, helping to strengthen the broadcasters' connection to their audiences while opening new revenue opportunities.
Together with specialists from the BBC, GatesAir and the Indonesian public broadcaster, the DRM team will run the workshop "Digital Radio Mondiale - Practical Implementation for Success" on March 7th 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. in the conference room Taming Sari 3. The workshop, to be accompanied by a live DRM transmission by Babcock International on 7410 kHz (5.00-6.00 p.m. local time), is designed to give delegates an update on the best steps to take towards a successful DRM introduction. This follows the launch of the next phase of the DRM roll-out by the Indian public broadcaster, All India Radio, and other project initiatives in Indonesia, Pakistan and other Asian countries. The aim of the DRM workshop is to offer a concise and practical way of understanding what DRM digital radio is and how to roll it out successfully, on budget, with significant energy savings and on time as part of a well-coordinated national effort.

DRM will also be present on booth number 33 throughout the show.
Digital Radio Mondiale™ (DRM) is the universal, openly standardised digital broadcasting system for all broadcasting frequencies, able to cover fully any country whatever its size at much reduced energy costs.
The DRM standard comprises two major configurations one intended for broadcasts on short, medium and long wave up to 30 MHz providing medium to large coverage areas and low power consumption (called 'DRM30'). The configuration for the VHF bands above 30 MHz is called 'DRM+', tailored for local and regional coverage with broadcaster-controlled transmissions.
All DRM configurations share the same audio coding, data and multimedia services, service linking, multiplexing and signalling schemes. DRM provides high quality sound combined with a wealth of enhanced features: Surround Sound, Journaline text information, Slideshow & EPG.
