In order to help digital radio make a worldwide market breakthrough, Alexander Zink, Martin Speitel and Max Neuendorf (from the left) developed technologies for the entire broadcast chain.

Digital radio makes spherics and crackling interference in radio broadcast a thing of the past. New technologies from Fraunhofer IIS make it possible for digital radio to replace analogue short and medium wave broadcasting around the world. Even local FM transmissions are being converted to digital. As a result, Digital radio listeners benefit from clear reception, a wider range of programming, and additional information via data services without having to pay for a costly Internet connection.
