The organization created the digital publication to give an overview of recent DRM events, activities and developments, and to offer a digest of information, opinions and updates on DRM and digital radio.
The Consortium says it salutes radio as the mass digital communication platform for our challenging times. It reports that in 2020, the value of DRM was conveyed to more people, further afield, than ever before.
The ebook provides insight into the digital radio standard’s recent technical developments, multimedia capabilities, Emergency Warning Functionality and applications. It also puts emphasis on DRM’s potential when used for distance learning, an area the group aims to develop further in 2021.
In addition, the digital guide highlights the manufacturers from China, India, Germany, South Korea, and the U.K., which have showcased receivers for AM (medium wave) and also for digital FM.
“The new DRM ebook gives complete, up-to-the minute valuable information on DRM,” said Ruxandra Obreja, DRM chairman. “It demonstrates that this all band standard has registered significant progress in 2020 and is poised for even bigger successes in 2021, when millions of new and old listeners will discover and rediscover the wonder of radio, of digital radio DRM.”
