Do you need a specific receiver for the reception of the DRM signal? [Narayanaraj Ramasamy


DRM-capable receiver is required with the necessary chipset to decode the DRM signal. However, the technology necessary to build a receiver is available at low cost to any interested manufacturer in order to encourage competition and prevent any single manufacturer from monopolizing the market for financial gain. Currently a number of manufacturers have operational models, and cars in India are being fitted with DRM receivers as standard. There are also plug-in units available for handheld devices. Currently these are relatively expensive, but it is anticipated that as mass-manufacturing begins, prices will fall significantly due to economies of scale.
