Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) Part 1
The European Union’s Eureka* 147 DAB Project is the only digital audio broadcasting system to be fully specified and to meet the ITU’s (International Telecommunications Union) requirements for a world standard. It provides radio broadcast data transmission at a bit rate of 1.2–1.5 Mbit/sec and is highly immune to noise and interference, even in mobile use. Its main application is a radio system with CD quality for mobile and domestic use. It is intended to replace VHF/FM broadcasts within the next 10 years. Apart from providing additional data services for graphics and text, the new multimedia system can also transmit television programmes.
