If a country would like to use on both DAB and DRM, are there pros and cons for this? [Hay Mar Myint]
DRM and DAB are two sister-standards, basically developed by the same group of people and sharing the same feature set and data applications. While DAB was designed with the needs of the big public broadcasters and the frequency availability in central Europe in mind, DRM is designed as a plug-in digital addition/replacement for the analogue AM and FM services – compatible with existing frequency allotments, transmission infrastructure and business cases. In places where DAB(+) is already rolled-out, DRM is the perfect complementing technology to digitize FM band services and to give wide-area coverage.
