Where is DRM currently available, and how can it be made more accessible?
Theoretically, it is available to about 3 billion out of the almost 9 billion people in the world. DRM is strong in Asia (with recent announcements made in Indonesia – DRM on AM, VHF frequency band II, FM, and best part of band III), China, Pakistan and of course India. DRM is recommended widely in Africa (by the South African regulator, by the Southern African countries and the ATU – African Telecommunications Union). DRM is available in Europe and regularly received in South America (e.g., we get daily reports from Brazil).
DRM is on a roll and with the announced low-energy, low-cost CML Micro/Cambridge Consultants all-inclusive module, more receivers will be available in many homes and not just the high-income ones. The number of receivers in cars is also increasing not in India (about 6 million and growing now) while digital receivers in mobiles are the key.
