Why DAB?

With capacity constraints on the FM spectrum and increasing competition from other platforms, radio has to innovate to remain relevant and secure its future in a digital world.

DAB offers the best solution for radio, with a platform that is secure, reliable and free-to-air.

DAB enables broadcasters to increase audiences and extend geographic reach. New services and more listener choice results in increased revenue opportunities and new business models such as station sponsorship and DAB pop-up stations.

DAB offers lower operating costs, delivered via energy savings and the efficient use of spectrum.

With the DAB multiplexing system, multiple radio stations share the cost of a single transmission, creating savings of up to 11x compared to FM.
