HD Radio Becomes Official Digital Broadcast Standard in Mexico
Mexico City - Jun 16, 2011 - The decision by Mexico's COFETEL (Federal Telecommunications Commission) to use iBiquity's IBOC technology became official when the new regulations were published in the Diario Oficial de la Nacion -- the Federal Register of Mexico. The decision by COFETEL to accept HD Radio technology as a digital standard for Mexico allows for broadcaster's voluntary use of the iBiquity technology in hybrid mode (analog and digital) by AM and FM station licensees, as well as the use of iBiquity multicasting technology. The regulation authorizes nationwide implementation of HD Radio broadcasting.
COFETEL originally recommended the IBOC standard in February of this year, but the recommendation then required the approval of COFEMER, the Mexican government's Commission for Better Regulation. After an open public comment period, COFEMER issued its approval on May 12, 2011.
