DAB - Where are we now?!
Digital Audio Broadcasting is officially on the air in Canada. DAB promises "CD-quality" sound, interference-free reception, and "datacasting".
Fred Benedikt, CBC Broadcast Engineering, has been involved with DAB for CBC and DRRI (Digital Radio Research Inc.) since its introduction to Canada in 1990. At our December meeting Fred will present an overview of DAB touching on topics such as:
- Do we need a new radio system?
- What exactly is DAB Eureka 147? What does it do for us?
- What is Datacasting?
- What is happening with DAB in Canada, USA and the World?
DAB receivers will be operational for you to hear and to "see". Program Associated Data (PAD) - including text and images - is broadcast with the audio. We'll also get a peak at what future DAB receivers may deliver.
Following Mr. Benedikt's talk join us for our Christmas Social. Enjoy refreshments and fine finger food in the artists' lounge on the tenth floor of the CBC Broadcast Centre. Socialize with your peers and have some "hands on" with a DAB receiver.
