It is my pleasure to announce an e-interview with President of WorldDMB

It was February 2014 when I first met with Mr. Patrick Hannon. Beside his professional carrier as a VP at Frontier Silicon, he is also the President of WorldDMB, the non-profit organization is the global forum for digital radio, facilitating the adoption and implementation of digital broadcast radio based on DAB, DAB+. We have met in Paris, at the French Radio Days event. 
I am honored to announce that Mr. Hannon accepted my e-interview offer. I will send him questions and post his answers. As you may well know, nowadays there is a digital transition in radio market. It is not as fast as television, but it progress. In some countries it is faster than others. Norway announced 2017 for the date of FM Switch Off. UK was the first to start DAB. Germany is an example of unsuccessful DAB and also restart of digital radio with DAB+. To put in a nutshell, there are different trials all over Europe. 
Turkey, is an other example. Many do not know but in Turkey we also had Digital Audio Broadcasting Radio for nearly 3 years period. Turkish Radio & Television (TRT), had DAB trails in Ankara and in Istanbul starting with 2002. As I wrote in my previous post, RTUK (the supreme council for radio & television) has the chance to tender for the radio frequencies.  This tender will probably be both for FM and also digital (most probably DAB+). 
I hope that my e-interview will make some points clear about digital radio. 
The photograph you see in this post is the one I took in Paris. I am sure that, unfortunately many does not know about Paris Commune and its importance in the world history.

post IBC 2022 move IBC 2023 to Istanbul

Before starting to write on the technology & services that I encounter at IBC 2022, let me write a little bit on Amsterdam & Schipol Airport.  As an engineer who believes that "another life is possible other than we live", i.e. a socialist version of life is possible, I do respect the strikes. I think that it is the most powerful way of being seen by the authorities. So the strike of railway when I came to Amsterdam was something I already know, thanks to my dear friend BM from UK. But the long ques that all of us waited at Schipol when we were trying to quit Amsterdam, was not because of a strike at all.  The overpriced restaurants, twice / sometimes triple times priced hotels, cosy but noisy city center... I can understand all of these, but can not understand standing in que for 3 hours just to exit the country. So I, once again, offer IBC to think Istanbul for IBC 2023.  I believe you all know that Istanbul with its two international airports, train & ferry con
