Digital Radio Mondiale will host three diverse and complimentary live and virtual events at IBC 2022 in Amsterdam to illustrate its overarching theme, “DRM for FM and AM — The Radio Platform for All.”
A virtual event, themed “DRM — A Platform for All,” is scheduled for Sept. 6, from 12 to 3 p.m. UTC (2 to 5 p.m. CEST). This will be a chance for all those interested in the performance or the manufacturing of DRM to get a full update from the comfort of their office or home or on the move. The event will showcase the practical advances of DRM in 2021 and 2022 with an illustrated, global view of the DRM standard and its latest receiver developments and projects. You can register for this virtual event here.
The first live event is a “meet and greet” with the DRM members and specialists at RAI Amsterdam. This event is on Sept. 10, from 9 to 10 a.m. UTC (11 a.m. to 12 p.m. CEST) at the Fraunhofer IIS stand, Hall 8 B80.
This event will also preface the main DRM event in the afternoon of the same day at the Nautel stand, Hall 8 C71, from 1 to 3 p.m. (3 to 5 p.m. CEST). “DRM Is Ready for FM” is an event co-hosted with Nautel and will bring the latest on the India DRM for FM trial, more information on the multi-configuration in DRM for FM, new receiver solutions and transmitter improvements.
DRM chairman Ruxandra Obreja says, “This will be an excellent opportunity to attend a series of great DRM sessions, blending a virtual event with face-to-face ones. Each will be unique and different so that together they offer enough information on their own or are experienced as stages in a journey of discovery which demonstrates that DRM for both FM and AM is the radio platform of the future. DRM is more attractive and in tune with the needs of the world than ever before, with its energy and spectrum cost savings and some extra features and possibilities, like delivering education and emergency warnings.”
