TISA President Thomas Kusche-Knežević attended the WorldDAB General Assembly in Paris on 7-8 November on behalf of TISA.

At the event, Mr Kusche presented the ARD TPEG Public Service and participated in a panel discussion titled “DAB+ for data: hybrid and connected” together with representatives from IDAG, XPERI, Continental Automotive, R+, and Mediamobile. The panellists agreed TPEG to be a significant service for an even more successful development of DAB+ in-car.

The WorldDAB General Assembly 2017 brought together more than 250 experts from across the industry to discuss the digital future of radio, DAB+ rollouts around the world and a European vision for digital radio.

This event takes place every year to facilitate the discussion around the rollout of DAB digital radio, in a situation when receiver prices continue to fall, car manufacturers need to fit DAB as standard, the DSO process moves forward and politicians need to work towards an increased collaboration at the European level.
