07 Sep Here is the best of DRM’s first IBC event
The DRM Consortium has already got in the IBC 2022 spirit holding on September 6th the first of its three events grouped under the theme “DRM for FM and AM”. The almost 60 participants from all over the world (Australia, Brazil, UK, Canada, Indonesia, Switzerland, South Africa etc.) in this virtual event followed with great interest the presentation that once again proved that the DRM standard is “the radio platform for all.”
Participants were very keen to see the new elements (the multi-configuration in DRM for FM demonstrated during the India trial) and the context and results of recent Australian DRM AM and FM trials. Updates on Indonesia from RRI and on the Denmark extended trial caught the attention of those keen to find out more about the DRM global progress.
Of great interest was, as usual, the whole section devoted to new receiver solutions, receivers and modules. The presentations of CML Microcircuits/Cambridge Consultants (UK), Starwaves (Germany) and Gospell (China) were a real bonus of the event. They announced new developments and their solutions and products will be available to see, and even order at IBC in Amsterdam.
The cooperation of the Consortium with the automotive industry and its pioneering education project also featured in yesterday’s presentation whose main points can be seen downloading this link: https://s.drm.org/KJr9 (PDF, ~16MB).
The virtual event on the 6th will be followed by two in-person events in Hall 8 of RAI Amsterdam. The DRM Consortium have organized at RAI Amsterdam a ‘Meet and Greet’ with the DRM members and specialists,” on Saturday, Sept. 10, at 9 a.m. UTC (11 a.m. CEST) hosted by Fraunhofer IIS at their stand (Hall 8 B80).
This first meeting will be followed by the “DRM Is Ready for FM” update organised by the Consortium together with Nautel on Saturday afternoon at the Nautel stand, Hall 8 C71, at 1 p.m. UTC (3 p.m. CEST).
Chairman Ruxandra Obreja said, “ with our varied IBC events and new announcements we hope to demonstrate that DRM is more attractive and in tune with the needs of the world than ever before, with its energy and spectrum cost savings and some extra features and possibilities, like delivering education and emergency warnings.”
