DAB is Now DMB

DMB Phones in South Korea

Digital radio is turning into Digital multimedia.

At a recent conference in South Korea, WorldDAB changed its name to World DMB. DMB stands for “Digital Multimedia Broadcast” and is an extension of the existing Digital Audio Broadcasting standard to allow more digital information.

However radio receivers will continue to be sold as “DAB” or “Digital Radio” in many countries.

Swedish Radio supported the name change. Swedish Radio’s Director of Broadcasting and Services, Jörgen M. Andersson, who was at the conference in South Korea, says:

“Technical development was one of the reasons for the name change. Why just use the audio part of DAB when new technology allows so much more? They’ve sold 2 million receivers in South Korea. We hopes to test DMB in Sweden, with the new AAC+ coding system.”

A number of Asian countries have already decided to use DMB for the development of multimedia services on cellphones.  Swedish Radio, however, is taking part in two trial projects with Telia and Teracom using a rival mobile technology, DVB-H.

(Note: In a story about DMB in September we quoted Swedish Radio News that it was the same as DAB 2.0. That is incorrect, DAB 2.0 refers to another, less extensive, development of DAB. We regret the misinformation.)
