London - June 5, 2014 — The DRM Consortium is expanding its activities with the launch of a new DRM platform in Southern Africa. Thus, Southern Africa joins the Indian, Brazilian, German and other DRM national platforms working together with the DRM Consortium but using national knowledge and expertise.

The launch of the Southern Africa DRM Platform is scheduled on June 25 and will be followed a week later by the beginning of the first DRM medium wave trial (by Radio Pulpit) in South Africa.

"The DRM global standard can be used in all radio frequency bands and is ideal for the large countries of Southern Africa," stresses Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Chairman. "From national networks and regional stations to smaller commercial and community stations, all would be able to broadcast their digital radio programs with enhanced content and in excellent sound quality to everyone in their respective countries. DRM is an ideal African digital solution and we have high hopes of the activity of the newly created DRM Southern Africa Platform, now open to all those interested."
