DRM to be presented for the first time at the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association General Conference

NEW DELHI: The Commonwealth Broadcasting Association General Conference in Glasgow in Scotland will focus on the place of music in broadcasting – exploring issues such as copyright, music policy and the debate around the use of new platforms for accessing and sharing music.

As part of the event being held from 11 to 14 May, the DRM Consortium Chairperson Ruxandra Obreja is to make a presentation titled “Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) – The Best Sound of Music” where she will demonstrate the high quality sound and improved listener experience provided by digital radio which can offer excellent sound quality on medium wave, short wave and also digital FM.

This will also be an opportunity to update the participants on the latest DRM developments and the benefits of DRM in its two modes tailored for local and regional, national and international coverage with broadcaster-controlled transmissions that are flexible and energy efficient.

The CBA is the largest global association of public service broadcasters and the Conference is a biennial forum for members from around the world. This year the event will be hosted by BBC Scotland, ahead of the Commonwealth Games to be held in the Glasgow this summer.

Furthermore, CBA is to partner the Consortium in promoting the yearly DRM Enterprise Award. This year the award is to go to a nominated individual or company within the Pacific Islands Region. The purpose of this award is to encourage the take-up of DRM in the region.
