Pakistan Broadcasting Corporation also known as Radio Pakistan has started work on converting its transmission to DRM+ technology. The shift to Digital Radio Mondiale Plus aims for cost effectiveness and clearer broadcasts.
Current AM and FM transmitters of Radio Pakistan can be made compatible to this technology, however they need some modifications.
Cost Effective and Efficient:
Under this technology, three channels can be aired from a single transmitter, which will prove cost-effective. Another benefit is that this technology enables listeners to get access to text services as well.
Director General, Radio Pakistan Khurshid Malik visited the project at Broadcasting House in Islamabad today where he was briefed about progress on introducing DRM Plus technology. He was informed that this technology enhances quality of broadcasts to perfection.
Khurshid Malik emphasized the need of improving contents of programmes besides introducing modern technology to cater the need of all segments of society.
