New DRM receivers on show at IBC 2011

The DRM Consortium will have its strongest presence ever at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC), being held in Amsterdam from 8 -13 September 2011. IBC is considered the leading global tradeshow for professionals engaged in the creation, management and delivery of broadcasting media and entertainment.

In Amsterdam, DRM will be showcasing developments, highlighting the potential of the DRM standard, as well as presenting new receiver options. Three key Consortium members (Transradio, Nautel and Fraunhofer IIS) will host events on 10, 11 and 12 September taking participants on a digital journey of discovery. On these three days there will updates on the latest market developments and demonstration on how DRM (either as DRM30 or as DRM+) can get multi-platform, rich, digital content direct to users. Videos and new receiver solutions will give these events a “hands-on”, unique feel.

Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Consortium Chairman, says: “Our presence at IBC will show that DRM is a complete digital radio solution, is very efficient and is making real progress in important global markets which, in turn, is stimulating chipset and receiver manufacturers to develop new solutions and products”.
