19 Apr DRM – Ready for Transmission and Reception
The DRM Consortium used its stronger than ever presence at NAB 2012 to showcase a new DRM receiver and to update participants on the developments and potential of the DRM standard, now fully recommended by ITU for both AM (DRM30) and VHF (DRM+).
Over the course of three days, industry professionals were presented with DRM’s full potential as an open, energy-saving standard and new practical solutions for transmitting and receiving DRM.
At the Continental-Transradio event on April 16th participants saw and tested the new DR111 receiver. They also learned more about DRM30 and how highly efficient and economical it is as it can deliver up to 80% energy savings.
On the following day, at the Nautel booth, record number of participants found out about the latest DRM+ developments and new equipment.
The third and final day, 18th of April saw the DRM Consortium and Thomson Broadcast provide the latest information on how DRM 30’s analogue to digital transition can help deliver more content through the FM infrastructure to new and existing receivers. “DRM has progressed in these last 12 months”, says Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Consortium chair. “Companies like Continental, Transradio, Nautel, Thomson and their partners have showcased the DRM solution supplemented this time by a new market ready receiver from Newstar. This will be joined by new receivers that we hope to introduce at IBC Amsterdam, in September.”
