LONDON�WorldDMB is now a signatory of the EBU''s Smart Radio Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). In so doing, WorldDMB joins with other members of the EBU to encourage the uptake of digital radio in multiple devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Working through its members and with industry partners, WorldDMB will seek to support the development of technologies, content services and business models to help achieve this goal.
�Smart devices are playing an increasingly important role in the consumption of audio content. As a growing number of countries adopt DAB/DAB+, our aim is to ensure that listeners can enjoy the full benefits of free-to-air digital radio on any audio device,� said Patrick Hannon, President of WorldDMB. �Hybrid solutions, combining broadcast and IP, will play a key role in this future.�
