DRM “biggest ever” presence at BES India 2015

The Digital Radio Mondiale Consortium say their presence at this year’s BES conference and exhibition in India will be their biggest ever.

The 21st International Broadcasting Engineering Society of India (BES) conference and exhibition on terrestrial and satellite broadcasting is being held in New Delhi, India, from 15- 17 January 2015.

DRM says experts representing companies such as Ampegon, Analog Devices, Fraunhofer IIS, Nautel, NXP, Radio Haugaland, RFmondial and Visteon will contribute to the conference program focusing on issues including the revitalisation of radio, DRM as the digital future of FM, cost-saving implementation of digital radio, broadcast meets broadband and the industry implementation of DRM.

“The DRM presence will be enriched with the Emergency Warning Functionality (EWF) tutorial and demo that will include sender and receivers,” a DRM spokesperson says.

Visitors will also have a chance to experience DRM in-car and see the first DRM solution designed specifically for the Indian automotive market.

Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Chairman, hopes that BES 2015 will set the right tone for the DRM standard in a market full of potential such as India.

“At BES we want to demonstrate that the DRM standard is not for the future but for now,” she says. “It can offer content in several languages simultaneously, thus enabling unity-in-diversity, spectrum efficiency and energy savings of up to 75per cent. The broadcasters, the manufacturing industry and millions of listeners can and should all benefit from it already.”
