DRM Event at NAB 2013

The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Consortium event will be hosted by Nautel on Tuesday, April 9th 2013 1500 – 1700 at the Nautel Booth, C2207. Entitled “Building for the 1st Billion Listeners,” the DRM presentation and networking event will feature presentations by DRM officials and Nautel specialists. It will also offer an opportunity to get the latest DRM news, see DRM in action and network with DRM experts.

Recent developments in DRM include the world’s largest DRM30 deployment currently under way in India. Twenty-seven Nautel NX Series DRM-enabled high power medium wave transmitters totaling 4.9 MW of power are being deployed throughout the country as part of All India Radio’s move to digital broadcasting. In other parts of the world, DRM+ trials are continuing; a report on these trials will be presented at the event and there will be a live demonstration of DRM+.

DRM Chair, Ruxandra Obreja, says, “We always enjoy the Nautel events at NAB as they are informative and well attended. This year we have lots to share as the India rollout is gathering momentum. We also supporting DRM developments in other continents as well and are keen to share this with the NAB participants interested in AM and VHF broadcasting.”
