MUMBAI: TDPradio, the Belgium-based dance music radio station has started broadcasting its unique dance music channel to listeners across Asia using Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM).
Dance music lovers can now tune into the station in pure digital quality via DRM short wave and enjoy high quality dance music no matter which Asian country they are living in. TDPradio has been broadcasting across Europe and the north east United States since 2003 when it was the first dance music radio station to use DRM to reach listeners.
The station’s ultimate aim is to be a worldwide dance music radio station broadcasting in DRM digital radio so listeners can tune into, regardless of location, to enjoy its broad mix of dance styles including house, groove, (hard) trance, euro-dance, elektro and club music.
TDPradio’s Program Manager Daniël Versmissen says, “This station has something for all dance music lovers and it showcases how great music sounds when broadcasting using DRM.” This station will broadcast from 0700-0800 UTC on 17755 kHz everyday across Asia. The transmission originates from Darwin, Australia via CVC Network Ltd .
Ruxandra Obreja, the DRM Consortium Chairman adds, “The DRM Consortium is delighted that TDPradio is expanding its reach to Asia using DRM, the open and global digital radio standard that is fast becoming a choice for broadcasters who want to reach their listeners with excellent audio quality over a wide coverage area. An increasing number of manufacturers, broadcasters and governments are adopting DRM due to its many benefits compared to analogue radio.
India and Russia have both recently decided to use DRM as part of their digital radio future.”
