DAB+ workshop in Kuala Lumpur

Thursday 27 July, 2017


WorldDAB, in partnership with the Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU), Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) and Asia-Pacific Institute of Broadcasting Development (AIBD) hosted a DAB+ workshop in Kuala Lumpur earlier this month.

33 delegates from 11 different countries took part in the five-day event which covered the latest advances in DAB+ technology.

It featured a wide range of topics from a practical perspective to provide delegates with the tools necessary to plan and deploy DAB+ networks 

Dr Amal Punchihewa, Director, ABU Technology welcomed delegates to the workshop which also featured additional presentations from Alex Ng of Gates-Air on transmitter technology, and Albert Tseng from Keystone Semiconductors on receivers.

The workshop also featured a hands-on group exercise, where delegates were asked to plan the DAB+ rollout for a fictitious country of their making, including aspects of transmission, networking, services, regulation and timelines.

Exercise outputs were presented back and showed everyone had obtained a clear understanding of the material presented, keen to move forward and apply their new knowledge to the planning and deployment of DAB+ in their own countries.

The next DAB+ digital radio workshop will take place in Jordan from the 23-24 of August 2017 and is being run in partnership with ASBU. The workshop will feature a live trial demonstration with DAB+ on-air in Amman.
