Nautel, Teracom Demo DRM at IBC 2012
Amsterdam - Sep 4, 2012 - The DRM Consortium and Nautel have a special digital DRM broadcast schedule during the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam (Sept. 6 - 11, 2012 ). Courtesy of transmission infrastructure provider Teracom, DRM transmissions will be heard during IBC on 243kHz throughout much of Northern Europe carrying BBC programming. Teracom installed a DRM-capable Nautel NX50 transmitter at the Kalundborg Denmark site in 2011, with this being the first DRM broadcast of this transmitter type on longwave.
10kW of DRM will provide equal or more coverage than the normal 50kW of analog transmission from Kalundborg. The BBC content will be a variety of music and speech, allowing DRM listeners to hear the full breadth of FM-like sound quality, available over the very wide coverage area of longwave transmissions, free of static and fading, as well.
