Calling all broadcasters! The DRM Consortium has been working with Ampegon to prepare an Excel-based efficiency calculator tool that can work out how much energy and money individual broadcasters could save by switching over to DRM. To launch the calculator tool, Ampegon’s Dr. Simon Keens will be joining Ruxandra Obreja of the DRM Consortium on June 30th, 2021 to teach interested parties how to use the tool themselves.

Simon Keens explains: “Most broadcasters only have a limited view of how much energy switching over DRM can save. This calculator tool allows individual broadcasters to model their transmitter’s performance and compare future energy usage and electricity costs with analogue and digital DRM operation. With an integrated network of high power transmitters, the savings potential is enormous, and significant environmental benefits can be realised.”
