Overview: The World DAB Forum's objective is to promote, harmonize and co-ordinate the implementation of DAB Digital Radio services based on the Eureka 147 DAB system. DAB creates multipath reception conditions to increase receiver sensitivity and is then broadcast on terrestrial networks for consumers to receive using a non-directional stub antenna. The forum is dedicated to encouraging co-operation and co-ordination between sound and data broadcasters, network providers, manufacturers, governments and official bodies. The Forum represents more than one hundred companies and organizations from all sections of the broadcasting industry and from 30 countries. They include: public and private broadcasters; DAB receiver and other electronic equipment manufacturers; transmission providers; regulators; and governmental bodies.
