MUMBAI: Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) is gearing up for an exciting presence and new announcements at this year’s International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, from 14- 19 September. IBC is the leading global tradeshow for broadcasters and media professionals and attracts over 1700 exhibitors from all over the world.

Under the overarching theme ‘DRM Drives Forward’, the DRM Consortium has arranged a series of events aimed at giving a full picture of the many DRM global developments that have taken place in the last 12 months, with relevant announcements for the future.

Speaking about the event, Consortium Chairman Ruxandra Obreja says, “The Consortium members want to give those attending a concise view of DRM across the globe and discuss, based on real experiences, the practical ways of implementing DRM. New broadcast and receiver equipment on display will give everyone interested in the digital future of radio the confidence that DRM can be used now to deliver full country coverage and enhanced services to all listeners. DRM makes possible an immediate digital future for all broadcasters large or small, offering more programme choice to listeners, extra multimedia services, emergency warning functionality with increased energy savings and spectrum efficiency.”

At all DRM events, participants will be able to receive the latest updates on market developments in India and the rest of Asia, Africa, Europe and attend demonstrations of all the latest and this time also new DRM broadcast equipment and receivers. The DRM series will be kicked-off with an exciting event hosted by Fraunhofer IIS. This event will focus on one African country and how DRM can deliver for a lot of large countries with diverse communities and needs. A good opportunity to bring you some breaking and exciting news from India, too.
