Amsterdam - Sep 11, 2009 - The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) digital radio receiver profiles, which define minimum functionality for different classes of digital radio receivers, were released at the IBC in Amsterdam. The profiles aim to help manufacturers build stand-alone DRM or multi-standard receivers and stimulate digital radio markets across the world.

For broadcasters, the profiles provide assurance that their services will be receivable and for manufacturers that their technology investments will be supported by a wide choice of services. For consumers, the profiles ensure that the products they purchase have the necessary features to offer consistent quality and assured levels of interoperability across their region and beyond. Regulators can use the receiver profiles to develop strategies and policies for digital radio broadcasting within national boundaries or with reference to trans-national and harmonized markets.

The profiles have been developed by the DRM Consortium with the aid of its member experts representing silicon chip manufacturers, consumer device manufacturers, radio broadcasters and other experts from across the industry. The development of the receiver profiles has taken into account important market considerations including the consumer experience, manufacturing issues and broadcaster requirements.

The DRM Receiver Profiles document can be accessed at this link on the DRM website.
