02 May DRM Users’ Guide in Russian
The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Consortium is pleased to announce the release of the first guide to the DRM standard in Russian.
This is the first full comprehensive DRM Users’ Guide produced by the Consortium in another language than English. Not only does the guide detail the advantages of implementing DRM as a fully open, global, energy and spectrum efficient digital radio standard but it also provides all the information required by broadcasters, regulators and the industry to shape the radio digital landscape for tomorrow’s needs.
Albert Waal (DRM Executive Board Member and Technical Director at RFmondial GmbH) editor of the document, says: “The Russian Users’ Guide is much more than just a translation of the English version. The guide comes with last minute updates and focuses on the aspects of DRM which have the greatest relevance for the Russian broadcasters and industry.”
Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Chairperson, welcomed the new document to be made freely available on the DRM website: “We are delighted to have for the first time a Russian version of the DRM Users’ Guide. We hope to be able to produce versions in other languages, if required. Meanwhile intensive work is going on in order to offer the digital radio world a new more complete English version to include information on DRM+ and the recently adopted ITU recommendations.”
About Digital Radio MondialeTM (DRM
Digital Radio MondialeTM (DRM) is the universal, openly standardised digital broadcasting system for all broadcasting frequencies below and above 30 MHz, including LW, MW, SW, band I, II (FM band) and band III.
DRM provides digital sound quality and the ease-of-use that comes from digital radio, combined with a wealth of enhanced features: Surround Sound, Journaline text information, Slideshow, EPG, and data services.
DRM on short, medium and long wave for broadcasting bands up to 30 MHz (called ‘DRM30’) provides large coverage areas and low power consumption. The enhancement of the DRM standard for broadcast frequencies above 30 MHz (‘DRM+’) uses the same audio coding, data services, multiplexing and signalling schemes as DRM30 but introduces an additional transmission mode optimized for those bands.
