DAB Basic Information
DAB is short for ‘Digital Audio Broadcast’ and
is a new form of radio broadcasting which
utilizes digital technology. DAB is capable of
providing near CD quality audio with virtually
interference free reception.
DAB operates in frequency band III (174
• Program type: Displays genre or other
240MHz). Band III is divided into 41 chan-
nels labeled 5A to 13F.
DAB channels are categorized into ensembles,
which are also known as multiplexes. Each
multiplex provides a number of stations and
each service contains a primary service that
can contain secondary services. DAB technol-
ogy allows broadcasters to transmit additional
data along with the audio, which can include
other audio channels, text and in the future,
even images and computer data.
• Frequency: Indicates the frequency that
the selected multiplex is transmitted on.
• Bit rate: The rate at which bits (informa-
tion) are transmitted. This is expressed
in thousands of bits per second (Kbps),
which effectively shows the quality of the
broadcast. The higher the bit rate is the
better the sound quality is.
• Dynamic label segment: This is the
text that scrolls across the FL display giving
program content. This feature is subject to
the service provider and station.
