In the past week, the digital world met in Lower Saxony to the annual computer and IT fair CeBIT,
also for the project office Digital Radio Fair brought new impetus and it is hoped to have gained
new DAB receiver.
Finally, the year will be accompanied with new transmitters and developments in the service area.
The CeBIT 2016 has come to an end, on Saturday night the exhibition halls in Hanover were closed.
For the first time presented itself at this event, the digital radio to DAB + standard on prior
ARD and Norddeutscher Rundfunk. The main issue was the traffic of the individual national
broadcasters and the networking of these offers at this point.
By the Cebit 2016 was launched by many companies, digital radio and traffic data transmission.
The magic word is “TPEG” (Transport Protocol Experts Group) and to a certain extent the development
of “TMC”, the date on the Radio Data System (RDS) broadcast data service that provides the navigation
device with storage updates and other traffic data. TPEG this may also, however, reliable, rapid
and in more detail. The system even includes features to identify about obstacles on the route more
accurately or to find out about the parking situation at the destination of travel.
A TPEG test service is at the current time to national multiplex “on Air”. However, the primary use
of these only the original equipment manufacturers, for navigation devices with TPEG are still scarce.
But the issue was planned “in the roadmap” of the automakers and in the further development,
explains Maik Elster from project office of WMUC Radio. The exhibition stand was impressive.
