51 RADIO STATIONS NOW AVAILABLE ON DAB+ IN HAUTS-DE-FRANCE

After Paris, Marseille and Nice, DAB+ is now available in Lille and in the Hauts-de-France region with the launch of 51 stations. On-air radio is continuing its transition to digital, as part of the trend in Europe. This is an ambitious national deployment plan being driven by the Conseil supérieur de l’audiovisuel (CSA - Superior Council of the Audiovisual)

70% of the French population covered in three years

The CSA's strategy, known as the 'nodes and arcs plan', will make DAB+ accessible to 70% of the French population by 2020. In three years, the large conurbations (the 'nodes') and the main road arteries (the 'arcs') will be covered.

In the next few months, the deployment of DAB+ will continue in Alsace, Rhône-Alpes, Normandy, Brittany, Gironde and Occitanie. Moreover, a multi-regional call for candidatures covering fifteen zones and a national call for candidatures will be launched shortly.

The digital radio revolution

DAB+ is based on the qualities of on-air broadcasting (reliability, free for the listener, anonymous listening), while bringing new features: high-quality sound, continuous reception on the move and associated digital services.

DAB+ will enable the radio offering to be expanded with more local, regional, theme-based, music or general programmes. As an example, 36 of the radio stations among those who are joining DAB+ were not present in the Nord or Pas-de-Calais: 17 radio stations[1] are totally new to the residents of the Nord and Pas-de-Calais, 12[2] were already present in these départements but are now more widely accessible and 7[3] are only accessible in DAB+.

The radio offering in DAB+ is very wide-ranging, and covers general-interest stations such as Sud Radio, public broadcasters like RFI or FIP, the national music radio stations, music stations like FG or Latina, local stations like Metropolys or Radio 6, theme-based stations like RCF or Radio Orient and stations run by associations.

Receptors DRM

nntot Technologies (www.inntot.com), a young start-up enterprise in India, who has already won CII Industrial Innovation Award 2017 and several other awards, has developed a software-based DRM receiver, which is based on a generic processor. It also meets all the specifications for the Minimum Receiver Requirements, supporting all DRM core functionality such as Journaline advanced text and EWF – Emergency Warning Functionality. The design has been field tested in number of cities in India. It is expected to be very cost effective.
Recently it was announced that the Software Defined Radio (SDR) startup Inntot Technologies has raised about $0.5 million (Rs 3.3 crore) in its seed round from early-stage venture capital firm Unicorn India Ventures for developing DRM receiver solutions and other digital radio products. “The USP of our solution is that it runs on generic hardware thus making it an affordable solution for the OEMs. We are also exploring the mobile phone segment to use our SDR solution for radio reception,” declared to the Economic Times of India Rajith Nair, cofounder, Inntot. The company is open to collaboration for its projects and for the manufacturing of their solutions.  While the first models included solutions for DRM in AM, provision for DRM in the FM band is also planned to be incorporated in the unit by end of July 2018.
GeekSynergy, another start-up company in India, which has been given awards by the President of India and the Karnataka Government, is working on the development of a highly affordable yet full-featured DRM receiver, which is likely to be showcased by summer 2018. The company is also working on incorporating DRM into smartphones using one of the most well-known chips installed in all the branded mobile phones.
Gospell Digital Technology Co Ltd located in China (www.gospell.com) has presented a very well-reviewed DRM Receiver, GR‑216, which is already in production. These units can receive DRM signals in the AM as well as the VHF bands for large-area and local services, respectively. Core DRM features such as Journaline advanced text and EWF – Emergency Warning Functionality – with automatic device-wake-up from deep-standby are supported. The company is marketing their units on Amazon and also receives direct orders. The model has obtained CE certification for international distribution including to Europe. In addition, Gospell is developing a DRM receiver dongle, GR-227, which can be plugged in the existing audio systems in the automobiles on USB ports or Aux input to receive DRM signals. The receiver model will allow legacy cars already on the road and with analog AM and FM reception to be upgraded to DRM digital reception through this simple add-on device. The unit is likely to go into production shortly.
 Titus SDR (www.titusradio.com), a Panamanian based company, has developed a multi-standard and software-based digital radio receiver, supporting DRM in all bands (LW, MW, SW, VHF bands I, II, III), DAB(+), FM analogue including RDS and AM analogue including AMSS. The full feature set of DRM functionality is supported by this device, including Journaline advanced text with full Unicode multi-script support, Slideshow images, EWF, transparent file transmissions (e.g. for educational services, when combined with the power of the full integrated Android based tablet), EPG/SPI, service logo download, etc. In addition, the model features a Wi-Fi hotspot feature, which allows all Wi-Fi enabled mobile devices to connect to the Titus and receive all the DRM services including audio streaming and Journaline using their standard web browser. The Titus receiver was showcased at the IBC Exhibition in Amsterdam, at HFCC meetings, and at the recent DRM General Assembly 2018 in Palma de Mallorca. The company is offering an innovative OEM model for production in interested markets using local expertise and manpower – another excellent open solution ideal for joint ventures
