Overview: The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Consortium formed in 1998 when a small group of broadcasters and manufacturers joined to create a universal, digital system (also called DRM) for the AM broadcasting bands below 30 MHz. Since then, DRM has expanded into an international consortium of more than 70 broadcasters, manufacturers, network operators, research institutions, broadcasting unions and regulatory bodies representing over 25 nations. DRM's main objectives are: to formulate a digital AM system design, which could serve as a single, tested, non-proprietary, world standard, which would be market driven and consumer oriented; and to facilitate the spread of AM digital technology around the world.
