Podcast: DAB lessons from developed markets

At the WorldDAB General Assembly, Sam Bonham speaks to Jacqueline Bierhorst from Digital Radio Netherlands, Joan Warner from Commercial Radio Australia and Ford Ennals from Digital Radio UK on what other markets can learn from their experience of DAB rollout.

The panel covers the opportunites for commercial radio, the need for collaboration, the lessons they can offer to countries looking to adopt DAB and their views on digital switchover.

The panel followed a session in the General Assembly  that focused on the three phases of DAB development across Europe: mature markets, developing markets and markets
which are pre-launch or in the planning phase. During each stage of DAB roll-out there are ideas, innovations and best practice from advanced markets which can be shared, providing valuable lessons learned to help new DAB market roll-outs.

    This was an interesting podcast. I think a switchover to DAB/DAB+ in the UK would be significantly more complicated and difficult than it was in Norway, at least if it was attempted in the near future. The number of people listening on DAB is growing quickly though, which will make a switchover easier if and when it does come.
