NEW DELHI�Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) is the means by which All India Radio is converting its transmission network around the country to digital radio.

The DRM Consortium has published posts to the online forum set up by the office of the Prime Minister of India, and the following is of particular interest:

�Congratulations on the decision and effort of All India Radio to digitize its medium wave radio network which will bring FM-quality radio to 100% of the country. Digital means more than good audio for everyone as it brings new content, emergency warning and traffic information, maximizing the benefits of one big investment by offering several key services at reduced energy consumption of up to 80%.

�All India Radio is now digitizing its Medium Wave and Short Wave transmitters. Digital transmissions provide excellent sound quality allowing for multi-language broadcasts with value-added services like pictures, data and internet info. The first Indian digital receiver for all this has been unveiled. The local receiver industry needs your encouragement and support.�
