Free webinar a chance to critique DRM transmission

Broadcasters considering DRM will have a chance to examine and discuss the digital radio transmission technology online with a free webinar next month.

The session, “DRM – Extra Features and Benefits, A Better Choice for Listeners”, will be presented by the DRM Consortium on 18 November 2013 from 15.30-16.30 India time (10.00-11.00 GMT/ UTC). Although aimed at the Indian market, it is also open to participants worldwide.

Ruxandra Obreja, Chair of the DRM Consortium, says experts from India and senior members of the DRM Consortium from around the world will present special features and give answers to some of frequently asked questions such as why is DRM a superior solution to analogue, where it is taking hold in India and why get involved in receiver manufacturing now.

“All India Radio recently published a call for a tender for DRM 800 receivers demonstrating the will to take their digital rollout plan to the next level,” Ms Obreja says. “This is an excellent sign for all manufacturers as chipsets with multi-standards including DRM are already available, making the integration of the DRM standard into receivers an easier and more cost-effective process.”

After some short presentations, which she says participants can watch for free from the comfort of their own computer, DRM will hold a question-and-answer session.
