26 Jul DRM Consortium Holds Its First Pan-Africa Roundtable
After participating in digital radio events across the continent the DRM Consortium has held its first DRM – Africa Roundtable. The presentation made by key experts in the Consortium (from companies like Fraunhofer IIS, Ampegon, Starwaves, the DRM South Africa Group) focused on the key aspects of the standard, its advantages, use, receiver development and implementation.
This was followed by a great session of questions and answers enriched recently with other points raised as the DRM Consortium has participated in recent African workshops, conferences, and exhibitions. They referred to advantages of digital, characteristics of digital receivers and transmission chain, costs and included even questions like: “Will digital radio (and DRM included) kill the FM?”
One of the roundtable participants sent us his immediate reaction:
“Hello DRM, I am very happy to read your articles and at the same time renew my ambition to work with you, whether it is in Senegal or Chad, I left this zoom meeting with full satisfaction and I would really like to work with you in the near future to DRM.”
