Hackett's Cove, NS - Mar 20, 2013 - Nautel will host a DRM reception at NAB on April 9 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Nautel booth (C2207) at the 2013 NAB Show. Titled "Building for the 1st Billion Listeners," the event will feature presentations by DRM officials and Nautel personnel, and will offer an opportunity for networking with DRM experts. Refreshments will be served.
Recent developments in DRM include the world's largest DRM30 deployment now taking place in India. 27 Nautel NX Series DRM-enabled high power medium-wave transmitters totaling 4.9MW of power are being deployed throughout the country as part of All India Radio's conversion to digital broadcasting. In other parts of the world, DRM+ trials are continuing; a report on these trials will be presented at the event and a demonstration of DRM+ using a live Nautel transmitter will be shown.
"AM broadcasting is facing challenges throughout the world but digital technologies are revitalizing the band," said Hal Kneller, Nautel Regional Sales Manager - Europe and Nautel's representative on the DRM Steering and Executive Boards. "HD Radio Technology and DRM30 can keep this important broadcast band healthy and take advantage of its wide area coverage and low cost of distribution."
Kneller will present a paper on digital transmission technologies for AM on April 8 at 4:30 p.m. as part of the Broadcast Engineering Conference.
