New Election Inside the DRM Consortium - BBC World Service Has Been Appointed Chair of the DRM Consortium

Bonn, Germany (ots) - Every two years, the Digital Radio Mondiale™ consortium holds elections. Yesterday the members of the Steering Board, the key players of the DRM Consortium, were elected. After 10 years as Chairman of DRM Peter Senger retired from both DRM and his position as Deutsche Welle"s Director DRM. His successor comes from another well known and respected international broadcaster, the BBC World Service in London. Mrs. Ruxandra Obreja, Controller Business Development, BBC World Service has been unanimously elected as new Chair of the DRM Consortium and DRM Association. The voting took place in Bonn at the premises of the long time DRM member and well known broadcaster Deutsche Welle. There was a great round of applause from the members of the Consortium for Mr. Peter Senger who, as Chairman of the Consortium, for the past ten years made an enormous contribution to the development of the DRM standard. The new Chair Mrs. Ruxandra Obreja introduced her vision to the members in a short presentation. She stated that: "DRM is on the threshold of a new era. Thanks to the brilliant work of our technical colleagues over the past ten years, the DRM standard is now mature. The challenge for all of us is to ensure that in the next few years the DRM standard is taken up on a mass scale. I see this as both the biggest challenge for the consortium and me personally." The DRM consortium greatly appreciates the offer of the BBC to take the lead in this enterprise announcing that it is ready to host the DRM Project Office in London. ots Originaltext: Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Internet: Contact: Fanny Podworny, DRM Tel.: +49/228/429'31'05 Internet:
