The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) consortium was founded in 1998 as a not for profit organisation. Twenty organizations
signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Guangzhou, China. These organizations represent broadcasters, academic institutions, and manufacturers.
The consortium purpose is to develop and promote a non-proprietary global technical standard for the replacement of analogue
AM (Amplitude Modulation) radio with digital radio, also called DRM.
Mondiale is the French word for world.
Union (ITU) 2002, International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) 2003, and the European Telecommunications Standardisation Institute
(ETSI) 2003, have all approved DRM broadcasts for frequencies below 30 MHz.
DRM+ is the name given to the newer DRM
standard for broadcast in the VHF band. For this reason the original DRM standard is often referred to as DRM30.
to be confused with Digital Rights Management -
the other DRM acronym.
