PURE WELCOMES GERMANY'S COMMITMENT TO DAB+
London, 27th March 2009: PURE, the world's leading manufacturer of DAB digital radios, today welcomed Germany's decision to roll out nationwide digital-radio services, using DAB+, at the beginning of 2010. In approving a nationwide network of multiplexes, up to 40 digital-radio stations will become available in every region of Germany, offering a mix of local and national services carried on public service and commercial radio stations.
PURE, a division of Imagination Technologies Group, anticipates significant market opportunities as a result of this latest European expansion. The PURE brand is on track to continue its growth in international markets in 2009, following a threefold increase in overseas sales in 2008.
Hossein Yassaie, Chief Executive of Imagination Technologies, said: "This is excellent news for Europe's digital radio community. With Germany, the UK and France now committed to the DAB family of digital radio standards, digital radios with multi-standard technology will become more widely available. This allows PURE to extend its reach to many more people as the barriers to a universal digital radio system in Europe are gradually overcome. This development, coupled with PURE's strong overseas growth, is further evidence that DAB –based digital radio continues to gain traction world-wide in spite of volatile demand for other consumer electronics."
