License Programme for DRM’s Audio Codec MPEG xHE-AAC Announced

San Francisco, April 18, 2016—Via Licensing Corporation announced today that a patent pool license for Extended High Efficiency AAC (xHE-AAC) is in the final stage of development.
xHE-AAC is the most recent update to the Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) family of technologies standardized by ISO MPEG. xHE-AAC combines an optimized speech coder with a high-performance general audio coder resulting in a single audio coding system capable of achieving exceptional results at low bit rates with any type of audio content, whether speech, music, or ambient sounds.
xHE-AAC is ideally suited for radio broadcast, which combines a variety of content from talk radio to voice over music or sound-effects to purely musical program content. For this reason, xHE-AAC has been selected as the audio coding format for Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM), a digital radio system designed to work over existing analog radio broadcast infrastructure, including shortwave. Apart from radio broadcast, xHE-AAC is well suited for radio streaming services, especially over congested networks. Due to its coding efficiency and scalability, with stereo bit rates as low as 12 kilobits per second xHE-AAC enables streaming services over 2G networks such as those found in emerging markets, and it can save bandwidth costs for service providers and consumers even on 3G and 4G LTE networks.
A number of xHE-AAC essential patent owners have been working to establish the patent pool with Via Licensing, including Dolby Laboratories, Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), Fraunhofer IIS, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Orange S.A., Sony Corporation, and VoiceAge Corporation. 
Royalties for the xHE-AAC license are expected to be as follows:
Volume  (per unit/annual reset)        Per-Unit Fee*
For the first 1 to 500,000 units           $1.08
For 500,001 to 1,000,000 units          $0.88
For 1,000,001 to 2,000,000 units       $0.78
For 2,000,001 to 5,000,000 units       $0.70
For 5,000,001 to 10,000,000 units     $0.67
For 10,000,001 to 20,000,000 units   $0.47
For 20,000,001 to 50,000,000 units   $0.45
For 50,000,001 to 75,000,000 units   $0.40
For 75,000,001 and more units          $0.35
* Preliminary; subject to change, pending availability of the license
The xHE-AAC program is designed to make it easy for current and future AAC pool licensees to add a license grant for xHE-AAC to an existing AAC license agreement. Similarly, reporting a mix of both AAC and xHE-AAC products is streamlined for AAC licensees. The license fees presented above are inclusive of the underlying AAC patents. In other words, xHE-AAC licensees will not be paying twice for the patents that are granted under the AAC Patent License Agreement.
"We are very pleased that the xHE-AAC patent pool is nearing launch," said Joseph Siino, President of Via. "Via and its licensors have supported the Digital Radio Mondiale initiative for many years. As the format evolves, just as the AAC codec family itself evolves, it is important for us to aid commercialization of the technology by simplifying access to the essential patent rights for manufacturers and developers worldwide."
The xHE-AAC patent pool is expected to launch in the second quarter of 2016.

BBG announces Amanda Bennett as new Director of Voice of America

WASHINGTON - The Broadcasting Board of Governors today will welcome Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Amanda Bennett as the 29th Director of the Voice of America (VOA).  An introduction and swearing-in ceremony will be held at Voice of America headquarters at 10 a.m. this morning and will be streamed live on the BBG website,

"We are thrilled to have such a talented, experienced and award-winning journalist as Amanda take the helm at VOA," said BBG Chairman Jeff Shell. "Her unique skills and deep understanding of the rapidly evolving digital news marketplace will serve VOA well."

"Amanda embodies everything we've been looking for in a VOA Director," agreed BBG CEO and Director John Lansing. "In today's complex geopolitical environment, VOA's work is more important than ever, and we are confident that Amanda will lead VOA to great success around the world on all media platforms."

"I am happy and excited to be part of such a vital news organization," said Bennett.  "We are the only source of reliable, objective, credible news and information for a large part of the world.  What's more, our mission of covering the fascinating complexity of our country and its people is a beat like no other. I look forward to working with the skilled and passionate journalists at VOA to bring those stories alive for the world."

Bennett served as executive editor of Bloomberg News, where she created and ran a global team of investigative reporters and editors and co-founded the Bloomberg News Women's project.  She also served as editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer, editor of the Herald-Leader in Lexington, Kentucky, managing editor/projects for The Oregonian in Portland, and reporter and editor for the Wall Street Journal for more than 20 years, including a stint as the Journal's Beijing correspondent. Most recently, she has been a contributing columnist for The Washington Post.

Bennett shared the 1997 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting with her Journal colleagues, and in 2001 led a team from The Oregonian to a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.  Projects by the Bloomberg projects and investigations team, led by Bennett, won numerous awards, including Loeb, Polk, Barlett & Steele, Headliners, Society of American Business Editors and Writers, and Overseas Press Club awards.

Bennett is the author of six books and a graduate of Harvard College.  Together with her husband, Donald Graham, she co-founder of TheDream.US, which provides college scholarships to the children of undocumented immigrants.

Bennett succeeds David Ensor, who served as VOA Director from 2011-2015.  VOA's Associate Director of Language Programming Kelu Chao has served as Acting VOA Director since June of last year.

DRM can also provide an economic and complementary solution to exactly those coverage scenarios that the established DAB/DAB+ networks in Band-III were never designed for.

Following their deliberations the participants urged all stakeholders of Digital Radio in Europe – including European organisations, regulators, broadcasters and the receiver and automotive industry – to embrace publicly the duality and complementarity of the open DRM and DAB standards as the complete Digital Radio solution for Europe (and worldwide). This means a digital future for all broadcasters, offering more programme choice to listeners, extra multimedia services with text and images, increased energy savings and spectrum efficiency. The participants ask 'all European stakeholders to promote actively the manufacturing and distribution of multi-standard Digital Radio receivers, comprising at least the DRM and DAB standards.'

The first session, held in conjunction with the open part of the DRM General Assembly, took a brief look at the status of DRM adoption around the world, including the DRM roll-out in India, ready to become the largest digital radio market in the world with over 600 million people being reached by DRM broadcasts. Presentations given by experts from various European countries showed that the digitisation of radio progresses in Europe. At the end of the first day Fraunhofer IIS (Bernd Linz) demonstrated the latest development to provide traffic and travel services in DRM radios, soon to be installed in Asia. Afterwards Martin Speitel demonstrated the features of the Fraunhofer software package for car radios with DRM. With this solution, radio manufacturers can quickly build or enhance radio platforms on a proven modular system covering the full DRM and DAB standards including their full feature sets, thus shortening their development times and, in turn, reducing their costs.

On the 7th April benefits and opportunities of DRM were shown with practical applications. Ampegon (Matthias Stoll) showed how easy and cost-effective the transition from analogue AM to DRM can be. Marc Holthof of the German Navy gave an example of how to use DRM over shortwave for maritime broadcasting of information and entertainment to ship crews at sea. Csaba Szombathy, Technical University of Budapest, demonstrated his original monitoring programme of DRM transmissions. Then RFmondial (Jens Schroeder), demonstrated how to provide DRM services in the crowded FM band compatible with all the existing FM stations. Joachim Lehnert, German DRM Platform Chairman, showed that DRM is a suitable system for local/regional coverage in VHF Band III, fully compatible with DAB/DAB+ and DVB-T networks and in keeping with RRC-06. RFmondial (Detlef Pagel) also referred to the use of DRM in VHF Band III and stressed that DRM+ is the most suitable digital system for the local and regional single-station broadcasters, as a complement to multiplexes, while sharing all the listenerrelated features with the DAB+ standard. Finally, Manfred Kühn, Mobile Broadcast Consult, demonstrated the flexible transmission of multiple DRM channels in a single DAB frequency block in VHF Band III.

This session was followed by a status report on the development of digital multi-standard radios, presented by Robert Bosch Car Multimedia, NXP, Fraunhofer IIS, PnP Networks and Panasonic. All the speakers finally emphasized the market and framework requirements for the production of multistandard radios for Europe.

Joachim Lehnert, Chairman of the German DRM Platform, concluded that the workshop was an important step to bringing national activities together and added; "With all the European DRM activities presented over the past two days and the encouraging messages from the receiver industry, I believe that the famous 'chicken or egg' problem can be solved from the receiver end by adding DRM as a complement to existing digital receivers. This will eventually help all radio broadcasters across Europe, whether national, local or community stations, and will ensure each has a digital home in the future."

The 59 years old DSWCI, which counts experienced DX-ers in 33 countries all over the world as members, will release in April the 18th  Edition of its annual Domestic Broadcasting Survey. This survey is divided into three parts:

Part 1: The 44th  edition of the Tropical Bands Survey covering all ACTIVE broadcasting stations on 2300 - 5700 kHz, including clandestines.

Part 2: Domestic stations on international shortwave bands above 5700 kHz broadcasting to a domestic audience.

Part 3: Deleted frequencies between 2 and 30 MHz which have not been reported heard during the past five years, but may reappear.

This new Survey is based upon monitoring by our members, many official sources and DX-bulletins. A16 schedules are included when available. About 65 domestic shortwave stations frequencies have left the bands. In order to make the DBS reliable, our own monitors around the world have checked throughout the period April 2015 – March 2016, if each of the 500 station frequencies is on the air. ACTIVE stations are marked with an A ("Regular"), B ("Irregular") or C ("Sporadic") in the list.   D means "Likely inactive".

A unique feature is the right column called "Last log". It shows the last month and year before DBS deadline on March 31, 2016   when the particular station was reported logged by a DX-er somewhere in the world. This is another way of indicating the current audibility of the station. To avoid inactive stations in this DBS, most frequencies which have not been heard during the past year, have been deleted and are moved to Part 3. No other frequency list has this feature !

Other useful features for easy identification (ID) are the parallel frequencies and reference to Station ID slogans.

Four sample extracts from the DBS-18 are shown on the next page. Reviews can be found on   

All buyers of DBS-18 will get a username and password to the monthly updates on the tropical bands published as "Tropical Bands Monitor" on our website. The similar, historical data from 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 are available to anybody at .

The 18 pages A-4 size DBS-18 is available by e-mail as pdf-format (about 350 kB).
A limited number is also available printed on paper for the last time, because the DSWCI is dissolved at the end of 2016!

Digital Radio Mondiale™ (DRM) holds successful General Assembly at Fraunhofer IIS Headquarters in Germany, April 5-6 2016

The 2016 General Assembly of the DRM Consortium took place on 5th and 6th of April at the headquarters of Fraunhofer IIS in Erlangen, near Nuremberg (Germany).  The theme for this year's event was "Digital Radio Mondiale – Smart Radio for Everyone".

This event held in conjunction with the DRM European Workshop gave an opportunity to Consortium members and invited guests to get together and exchange exclusive information on DRM in one of the most innovative research institutes in the world.  During the General Assembly the participants reviewed the excellent progress made in India, the interest shown in some of the Asian countries and the planned DRM+ trial in South Africa. The commercial launch of the full-feature DRM Indian receiver, of the line-fit car receiver in a top Indian car model, the traffic information demonstration for cars, the multimedia player and the software defined radio receiver were practical examples of DRM progressing significantly in the past 12 months. The DRM members welcomed the decision of Hungary to recommend DRM alongside DAB for its digitisation and encourage therefore the production of analogue/DRM/DAB receivers.

Besides the country updates the company updates, including that from its newest member, Panasonic, were the highlights of the event.

The DRM General Assembly elected its Steering Board and Ruxandra Obreja as Chairman. It also welcomed representatives of the PBC (Pakistan Broadcasting Corporation) and RRI (Radio Republik Indonesia) as observer members of the Steering Board.

The General Assembly approved the future strategy focused on getting DRM receivers so that digitisation can be enjoyed by all broadcasters large or small for the benefit of their listeners.

Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Chairman said: "DRM is digital radio for all as became so evident during the presentations and discussions on these two days and during the following European workshop. With effort, dedication and open mind DRM can now turn promise into reality."

The DRM European workshop which overlapped with the General Assembly also began today (Wednesday 6th and also on the 7th), being organised by the Consortium, Fraunhofer IIS and by the DRM German Platform.  Joachim Lehnert, Platform Chairman, explained that: "The event will focus on the receiver and car industries. We need multi-standard radios in Europe which can and should include DRM reception in the AM and in the VHF bands."
