The first event is a “Meet and Greet” at 10.30 a.m. at the Fraunhofer IIS stand (Hall 8, B.80) at the RAI exhibition site in Amsterdam.
DRM will then host the main event — “DRM Showcase” — in (G105), one of the top meeting rooms at the heart of the exhibition center, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. local time (CEST). In the relaxed atmosphere of a lunch event, guests will see examples of DRM activities worldwide and hear important announcements. Guest can also meet DRM experts representing companies like Ampegon, BBC, CML Microcircuits/Cambridge Consultants, Encompass Media Services, Gospell, Fraunhofer IIS, Nautel, RFmondial, Starwaves and other DRM key representatives.
One of the announcements will be about what the Consortium believes to be “the world’s most versatile DRM module for consumer broadcast receivers.” CML Microcircuits and Cambridge Consultants will announce the full availability of their DRM1000 digital broadcast receiver module, a complete ‘antenna-to-audio’ solution providing a fast, low-cost and low-power means of achieving mass market receivers of AM, FM and DRM broadcasts worldwide.
DRM Chairperson Ruxandra Obreja says, “The DRM Consortium will bring something fresh to the busy and noisy IBC environment. A lunch event is a new format for us and should inform and strengthen the conviction of those attending that, in the present media environment, digital broadcasting has an important role to play. DRM is complete, robust and global. It can offer unique services in all broadcasting bands, such as emergency warning and distance learning while saving energy costs, spectrum and delivering full-country coverage.”
If you wish to join the team for lunch in person, DRM asks that you email its project office.
