The Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union is teaming up with the Digital Radio Mondiale Consortium for a webinar entitled “Delivering Emergency Warnings with DRM.” The topic should be self-explanatory, the event will air Feb. 7, 1530 MYT. That’s in the Malaysian time zone which is GMT +8.
According to a release the live video conference will “detail how DRM digital radio can complete and enhance existing national emergency infrastructure using its Emergency Warning Functionality (EWF).”
It explains, “During the interactive webinar session, DRM experts will detail how in-built features of the DRM standard can be efficiently used to deliver emergency warnings only to the affected areas, in several languages in both audio and text. DRM offers more than an enhanced signaling service and has all the tools already to function internationally, nationally and regionally as a complete emergency warning system.”
In addition, “The content of the webinar will be interesting to all broadcasters including technicians, engineers, and senior managers, policy makers working with radio broadcasters, and other professionals who are interested to learn about transition to and management of Digital Radio, DRM.”
