Mar 14, 2014 12:15 PM, By Doug Irwin, CPBE DRB

London - Mar 12, 2014 - The General Assembly of the DRM Consortium will be held March 26 and 27, 2014, at the BBC Headquarters in central London, the New Broadcasting House. Under the title "DRM in Action," the Consortium will use this opportunity to highlight the benefits of the DRM standard and the progress it is making around the world, as well as to emphasize the power of digital radio.

The first day of the GA (March 26) will be open to all DRM members and invited guests from the UK and abroad. It will be a day to celebrate the future of radio. The well-known broadcaster, Robin Lustig, will give a personal and global view on the power of radio.

The morning session will be a chance to consider why digital radio is "Radio Plus" and should be attractive to listeners. In the afternoon, delegates will be able to have a "hands-on" experience of DRM and digital radio under the guidance of some Consortium members and representatives: BBC (UK); Babcock International (UK); Fraunhofer IIS (Germany); Digidia (France); Radio Haugaland (Norway); BT Broadcast Transmitters (Brazil); Orbisonic (Brazil); NXP (The Netherlands) and RFmondial (Germany).

One of the key sessions will examine the digital roll-out in India with the help of Indian contributors. Brazilian experts will give participants an insight into Brazil's digital radio contrasts.

The event will be hosted in the iconic Radio Theatre of the BBC in central London.

To register for the General Assembly events on March 26 contact as the event is by invitation only. Sessions held on March 27 are for DRM Consortium members only.
