Brief synopsis on 'DRM Radio Broadcasting

The 'Digitalization' is the buzzword. In the field of Radio Broadcasting, the Digitalization is happening in phases at various segments of production, distribution  and transmission worldwide. In many of the  developed countries this is complete & traditional analog transmission systems  are being switched off or phased out. Worldwide there are three Radio broadcast standards/Technologies (DAB/HD/DRM) which have been adopted along with few proprietary implementations in some countries. In our country we have adopted DRM Radio standards for MW and SW Broadcasts is being implemented in a big way.
