South Africa's digital radio future

In this special TalkCentral podcast, TechCentral editor Duncan McLeod sits down with the experts on digital radio in South Africa to talk about the country's DAB+ and DRM trials, what's been learnt from them, and when consumers can expect commercial services to be launched. Also in the podcast, the panel talks about what's holding back roll-out and adoption, and what's next for radio in South Africa. The panellists are Primedia Broadcasting CEO Omar Essack, Southern African Digital Broadcasting Association (Sadiba) chairman Lynn Mansfield, South African DRM consortium member and adviser to Radio Pulpit Chris Joubert, and Dave Cherry, chairman of the Sadiba/National Association of Broadcasters Digital Working Group (focused on DAB+).
