13 Sep Global open DRM standard announces new application at IBC
The World’s first Diveemo live broadcast was showcased today Monday 13th September at the launch hosted by the DRM Consortium at IBC. Diveemo is the new small scale video service for Digital Radio Mondiale, a joint project between Fraunhofer IIS, Thomson Broadcast and Chengdu NewStar Electronics. During the presentation, a demonstration of a video broadcast with BBC content wasdisplayed on a UniWave DRM receiver. Over eighty specialists and enthusiasts were able to experience Diveemo. It delivers cost efficient large-area distribution of education and information video programmes via DRM. This was the last of a series of three DRM events held on September 11th, 12th and 13th at IBC.
On Saturday, Transradio and Consortium experts talked about the benefit of DRM30 in short wave, medium wave and long wave and its cost efficient implementation over large areas.
On Sunday, a year after its introduction to the world at IBC, DRM Consortium, Nautel, RFmondial and Fraunhofer engineers demonstrated how their new equipment could offer the possibility of DRM+ in digitazing FM stations.
The short presentations backed by demonstrations and followed by networking opportunities for over 200 people turned the three events into a very successful showcase for a well established standard with a brand new application.
