NRSC Study Addresses AM Sound Quality
February 7, 2007 at 5:50 AM (PT)
A new study addressing the quality of AM broadcasts when stations reduce the bandwidth of their transmitted signals to below 10 kHz is providing the NATIONAL RADIO SYSTEMS COMMITTEE (NRSC) with valuable information on possible ways to improve the listener experience with AM radio.
The NRSC is jointly sponsored by the NAB and the CONSUMER ELECTRONICS ASSOCIATION. Its purpose is to study and make recommendations for technical standards that relate to radio broadcasting and the reception of radio broadcast signals.
"The results of this extensive study will assist the AMB Subcommittee in reviewing the standards under its purview to ensure that they are serving the industry in the most appropriate way," said CEA VP/Technology & Standards BRIAN MARKWALTER. "The AMB Subcommittee study shows the NRSC's commitment to sound scientific research in determining the best standards for the radio industry."
