DRM and Digital Radio Holds its Own at ABU General Assembly Conference


Though the technical committee meeting of the ABU was dominated by latest TV, OTT developments, DRM found its own place too. The panel discussion on linear broadcasting also included a spirited defense of radio and some focus on the advantages like spectrum and energy savings offered by DRM. At the end of the two days of presentations and discussions of the TC meeting the DRM update was very well received. The DRM progress in China, India, Russia and other Asian countries, as well as the increasing number of receivers in cars and receiver solutions interested the experts from countries considering radio digitisation. They  DRM consortium representatives present in Tokyo were available to answer all their questions.
