Why radio needs to be DAB?
The world of broadcasting is very different today than it was just ten years ago. Digital television, digital phones and digital radio bring more diversity and communication power than ever before in human history. In the age of Twitter, social networking, internet radio, YouTube, iPhone and mobile applications, radio needs to stay relevant. Digital radio can greatly improve the listeners experience, at the same time delivering added revenue streams, brand extension and station loyalty to the broadcasters.
What are the different DAB Technologies?
DAB: When DAB was first developed it was based on MPEG Audio Layer II coding, which was then state of the art and remains a widely used coding technology in radio today. The original DAB standard is used in the UK, the world’s biggest digital radio market.
DAB+: The digital world is fluid, ever changing, always pushing the boundaries of what it can achieve, and this very flexibility presents its own challenges. Following MPEG-2 came MPEG-3 and MPEG-4 (AAC). Rising to the challenge, DAB+ was developed. An advanced version of DAB, DAB+ allows for even more efficiency at lower bit-rates lower per-station transmission costs and offer listeners an even grater choice of services. New receivers, which include both types of audio codecs, will work in any country. DAB+ is used in Australia, Singapore and Malta, and many other countries are making the transition from DAB to DAB+ services
DMB: Another important innovation is the addition of video/multimedia capabilities to allow DAB to become a digital mobile television platform as well as a multimedia digital radio platform. While handheld devices are proving to be an attractive market for mobile telecom operators, the cost of using 3G networks to deliver video streaming to mobiles is prohibitive. A broadcast technology is far more cost effective and DMB (Digital Multimedia Broadcasting) fulfils this advancement. The range of products receiving video and multimedia services via DMB such as mobile phones, PC, in-car, PDA like devices is now well over 150 with many manufacturers producing cutting-edge designs at affordable prices. DMB is the technology of choice in France, and trials are currently running in many other countries across Europe.
All three technologies DAB, DAB+ and DMB, can be used alongside each other on the same multiplex, using the same infrastructure, resulting in a wide range of possible multiplex scenarios.
