12 Jul What are the benefits of digital AM for the listener?
More Choice: The average radio today can receive some 35-40 local FM stations and a handful of Medium Wave broadcasts. DRM has the potential to bring to every radio a vast selection of new content.
Sound quality: Medium Wave broadcasts can now be heard in FM-like sound quality. And reception is excellent anywhere – in cities and in dense forests, indoors in a block of flats and outdoors while driving your car. It’s still a Radio! You don’t need an internet connection to listen nor a Wi-Fi spot to tune in. And because of this, it is truly portable and mobile.
Radio without boundaries: DRM is ideally suited to long range broadcasting, you can stay tuned to the same station as you cross regional and national boundaries and move from one country to the next.
EPG and text information: Using the Electronic Programme Guide you can tune in easily by frequency, station name or type of programme. In addition, the programmes come with associated text information – the name of the station, the title of the programme or record playing etc.
