DRM Consortium free Webinar on 24th June –“From FM to digital - The flexible and economical way”

The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Consortium experts will present and answer questions on June 24th from 1230 to 1330 GMT/UTC on why DRM (in its DRM+ mode) is an excellent solution for public, commercial and community stations. Senior DRM members will present the DRM+ special features, highlight some of the DRM+ practical lessons from Norway, France etc. and give answers to some practical questions on the subject.

Eivind Engberg, Chief Engineer at Radio Metro, Norway, one of the panellists says: "We have just run a successful DRM+ trial in Norway which demonstrated how the DRM technology can perfectly fit within the Norwegian radio digital landscape. DRM+ can help medium-sized and smaller station operating in the FM band to move to the next level with confidence and operational savings."

Ruxandra Obreja, Chair of the DRM Consortium, thinks that: "It is crucial for all broadcasters, regulators, manufacturers and everyone involved in shaping the digital future of their country to consider DRM+ for the FM digitisation. DRM is the only global, green, open standard operating in all frequency bands efficiently and flexibly."

About Digital Radio MondialeTM (DRM)

Digital Radio MondialeTM (DRM) is the universal, openly standardised digital broadcasting system for all broadcasting frequencies below and above 30 MHz, including LW, MW, SW, band I, II (FM band) and band III. DRM provides digital sound quality and the ease-of-use that comes from digital radio, combined with a wealth of enhanced features: Surround Sound, Journaline text information, Slideshow, EPG, and data services.

DRM on short, medium and long wave for broadcasting bands up to 30 MHz (called 'DRM30') provides large coverage areas and low power consumption. The enhancement of the DRM standard for broadcast frequencies above 30 MHz ('DRM+') uses the same audio coding, data services, multiplexing and signalling schemes as DRM30 but introduces an additional transmission mode optimized for those bands.
