New Delhi - Feb 13, 2014 - The DRM Consortium and the Confederation of Indian Industry have organized a one-day seminar entitled "DRM: The Future of Indian Radio - Business Opportunities for Stakeholders." The seminar will be held Feb. 28, 2014, at the Hotel Le Meridien, Sovereign I, New Delhi.
All India Radio has begun a phased program to switch from analog to digital broadcasting with the target for complete digitization by 2017. The digital technology adopted is Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) - the open, all-band, global standard with a number of operating modes designed for both AM and VHF broadcast bands.
Some goals in the presentation of the seminar:
� To create visibility of the DRM standard amongst the stakeholders;
� To hear from key members of DRM Consortium and learn more about the features and benefits offered by the DRM standard for transmitters and receiver manufacturers;
� To share the AIR plans for their digitization of radio broadcasting;
� To flag the opportunities available to Indian industry in designing, developing and manufacturing cost effective DRM receivers for the domestic and exports markets;
� And, to understand the potential of the 'value-added' services that can be made available on DRM receivers and facilitate further interaction/business meetings between the developers/ manufacturers and technology providers.
