What is DAB+
DAB was developed in Europe by a consortium of broadcasters and manufacturers
DAB uses digital compression techniques to transform the source material, i.e. music
and speech, into better quality audio.
Interference free reception
Analogue systems suffer from an effect called “multipath distortion”. This is caused
because waves do not behave in an orderly fashion, but bounce and reflect off
buildings etc. DAB+ sees this as an advantage and uses the direct and reflected signals
to actually reinforce the end result, allowing for better service more of the time.
No need to re-tune
A single DAB+ frequency can be used to cover the whole of the Australia, so solving
many of the problems experienced with the earlier analogue system DAB+ scan
automatically tune-in all of the available stations in your area.
Scrolling Text
Broadcasters can transmit text to your radio. This way you can read the name of the DJ,
artist, song title or any other information they choose.
