DRM to demonstrate audio quality and developments by AIR at BES Expo 2016

New Delhi: The DRM Consortium will be represented by several members at the 22nd international BES (Broadcasting Engineering Society) conference and exhibition on terrestrial and satellite broadcasting from 4 to 6 February in Delhi.

As DRM digital radio starts to become a reality in India with 75 per cent of DRM installations now on air and an Indian-made receiver in the market under the banner ‘Digital Radio for All’, visitors will be able to experience the DRM sound at the Nautel/Comcon stand. Audio quality and extra service form regular All India Radio services will be shown on fixed and mobile receivers.

According to DRM Consortium chairperson Ruxandra Obreja, “DRM transmissions will offer the majority of the Indian population improved audio quality similar to FM but across much wider areas, multi-lingual text news, improved service reliability, diversified content and many additional features. We are proud to support the BES event and this year our presentations and demonstrations will practically prove the progress made in India while we will learn from our Indian colleagues how the media landscape of India is changing.”

Key members Ampegon, Communication Systems Inc, Fraunhofer IIS, Nautel, NXP and RFmondial will be in attendance.
