London - Jan 23, 2014 - WorldDMB, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and Swiss public broadcaster, SSR SRG, are working together to ensure that visitors to the 2014 Geneva Motor Show experience the best that DAB+ can offer in terms of audio and visual radio services.

During the show, visitors will be able to listen to services on-air in Switzerland and see digital radio integrated into the dashboard of most leading car brands. A number of automotive manufacturers, including Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Citroen, Daimler, Fiat, Ford, Fuso, Hino, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Isuzu, Lexus, Lotus, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, Seat, Skoda, Toyota, TVR, Vauxhall, Volkswagen and Volvo are already offering DAB+, either as a standard line fit or an option.

Switzerland is one of the most successful digital radio regions in the world, with more than 95 percent of the population covered by a digital radio signal. More than 42 stations are on air in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, 14 in the French-speaking part and 19 stations in the Italian-speaking area. Switzerland also has some of the most comprehensive digital radio road coverage: 99 percent of the road network is covered by a digital radio signal, an impressive feat given the country's complex topography.

The Geneva Motor Show will run from March 6 -16, 2014, and a full list of DAB+ radio services on air during the Show will be released in February 2014. ETI files for these services will be available on request to WorldDMB members.
