RadioScape to showcase DRM/DAB radio receivers at IFA 2005
Radioscape will showcase the world’s first affordable, integrated, multi-standard, digital radio receivers at IFA 2005 in Berlin
RadioScape will be showcasing multi-standard digital radios based on its recently launched RadioScape RS500 module at IFA 2005 in Berlin. RadioScape has worked with several leading manufacturers who will be launching their digital radios at the show that will be able to receive DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) as well as DAB (Digital Audio Broadcast), FM with RDS, LW, MW and SW.
DRM will be featured at two IFA locations this year, where the new DRM/DAB radios will be on display.
“IFA is one of the most important consumer electronics events and is the perfect showcase for the first, consumer-priced DRM/DAB radios,” says Dave Hawkins, VP of RadioScape’s Receivers Business. “This will really help DRM take off with the general public. Our software architecture has enabled us to create cost-effective, multi-standard, multi-application modules by using software stacks running on a powerful Texas Instruments DSP engine. DRM is a complex technology, but our expertise in developing with many other radio standards has enabled us to create and verify a complete, multi-standard radio solution in record time. DRM broadcasters have been waiting for the launch of consumer-priced receivers and, through our close cooperation with a number of leading radio manufacturers and broadcasters, we will enable this to happen right on schedule for the run up to the 2005 Christmas market. DRM will be the hot technology at IFA this year with many broadcasters and manufacturers making DRM announcements. As a result, 2006 will be the year that DRM becomes mainstream.”
