DRM FREE WEBINAR– 18th November 2013

The DRM Consortium is holding a free webinar aimed largely at India with the participation of the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU).
"DRM – Extra Features and Benefits – A Better Choice for Listeners" will be presented by experts from India and senior members of the DRM Consortium from around the world. A short presentation will be followed by questions and answers on the exciting aspects of DRM and the practical ways of making them available in receivers.
The webinar will be held on 18th November 1530-1700 India time (1000-1130 GMT/ UTC). Although the event is primarily aimed at the Indian market worldwide participants will be very welcome.

The webinar will tackle issues of interest in India and the current debate on radio digitisation for example: why is DRM superior to analogue, the implementation of the roll out plan in India and why get involved in receiver manufacturing now.

Ruxandra Obreja, Chair of the DRM Consortium, says: "All India Radio recently published a call for a tender for DRM 800 consumer receivers - alongside a tender for professional ones - demonstrating the will to take their digital roll out plan to the next level. This is an excellent sign for all manufacturers as multi-standard chipsets including DRM are already available. This makes the integration of the DRM standard into receivers an easier and more cost-effective process."
