Digital Radio Update - September 16, 2009
The Microsoft Zune HD hits the streets, Internet radio standards are released, and DRM releases receiver profiles.
DRM is hoping announcement of the new standard will open doors for the extension of its open standard digital radio technology into VHF spectrum now home to analog FM signals.
An IFA press release describes the standards as essential in reducing time to market for manufacturers while reducing uncertainty among consumers about short-term obsolescence of individual purchases.
Available for download by World DMB member organizations, the library will provide a virtual test track of digital DAB, DAB+ and DMB transmissions.
