First European HD Radio(TM) Forum Draws Leading Executives Across Multiple Industries

COLUMBIA, Maryland, April 6 /PRNewswire/ --

More than 70 industry executives representing the automotive, broadcast, data content and IC industries attended the first-ever HD Radio European Forum held recently in Cologne, Germany. The agenda featured updates on the HD Radio rollout, an overview of current and future HD Radio applications and a roadmap on future plans.

"The Forum surpassed all of our expectations and fostered an atmosphere whereby people could meet, share ideas and review the global rollout of HD Radio technology. We are very pleased by the broad support we received from industries and executives throughout Europe," said Jeff McGannon, vice president of OEM business development at iBiquity Digital, the company who hosted the Forum. "Interest in the Forum illustrates the continuing momentum of HD Radio technology around the world."

HD Radio technology has made a number of inroads in Europe in the past year:

-- In February 2007, R.V.R. Elettronica became the first licensed HD
Radio broadcast equipment manufacturer in Europe.
-- In January 2007, German-based BMW announced that it would be the first
automotive OEM to offer a factory-installed digital HD Radio(TM)
receiver as an option across its entire 2007 product line.
-- An HD Radio trial began in Warsaw, Poland, in February 2006, with more
detailed testing of the system expected later this year.
-- VHF testing sponsored by Radio Sunshine and Ruoss AG began in Lucerne,
Switzerland, in April 2006. Tests are planned to continue on a full-
time basis through the autumn of 2007.
