COLUMBIA, MD. — iBiquity Digital Corporation announced that Mexican broadcast group IMER (Instituto Mexicano de la Radio) has completed its project to upgrade all thirteen of its FM stations to digital HD Radio broadcasts.

IMER began digitizing its stations in Mexico City shortly after the Mexican government approved HD Radio Technology as the standard in 2011 and has since begun transmission of two new HD2 and HD3 channels at each station. The HD Radio broadcast equipment for all thirteen IMER stations was provided by GatesAir (formerly Harris Broadcast). In the coming months, IMER plans to begin its first HD Radio AM transmission on XEQX1350 in Mexico City. GatesAir engineers will assist in the station conversion.

Automakers shipping HD Radio-equipped vehicles in Mexico include Buick, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Infiniti, Jeep, Lincoln, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Mercedes-Benz, RAM, and Toyota.

HD Radio aftermarket and home products are available from multiple brands including Alpine, Kenwood, Insignia, Pioneer and Sony at leading major Mexican retailers: Best Buy, Coppel, Elektra, FAMSA, Liverpool, Sears and Woolworth.
