IMER Group completes digitization of all FM stations, prepares to upgrade AM stations

IMER (Instituto Mexicano de la Radio) began digitizing its stations in Mexico City shortly after the Mexican government approved HD Radio Technology as the standard in 2011 and has since begun transmission of two new HD2 and HD3 channels at each station. 

Bob Struble, President and CEO of iBiquity Digital Corporation said, “We’re excited that our good friends at IMER, along with many other partners, are committed to a digital radio future in Mexico.  More and more Mexicans are enjoying HD Radio broadcasts as automakers’ and aftermarket manufacturers’ HD Radio receiver sales grow. Forward looking broadcasters like IMER will ensure that Mexican listeners can experience the upgraded quality, increased content choice and advanced interactive features the HD Radio system provides.”  

HD Radio aftermarket and home products are also available from multiple brands including Alpine, Kenwood, Insignia, Pioneer and Sony at leading major Mexican retailers; Best Buy, Coppel, Elektra, FAMSA, Liverpool, Sears and Woolworth.
