DRM Energy Calculator

The DRM Energy Efficiency Calculator is the DRM Consortium user-friendly tool that determines how much energy can be saved by switching transmitters from analogue to digital DRM operation.

The parameters considered are: operational mode, time on-air, and broadcasting technique assessing the energy consumption and electricity costs, based upon local market information. By comparing data sets for both analogue and DRM digital operations, it can estimate the potential (and often huge) savings broadcasters might expect from switching over to DRM. This shows how this new digital technology can reduce electricity bills by double-digit percentages and proves how DRM supports broadcasters’ efforts to become more sustainable though green technology.
