  • We seized the opportunity and visited Panama with our products in July. The Latin American and Caribbean markets are growing fast so we decided to introduce ourselves via this exhibition. Our main focus was on our newest Bluetooth products and solutions for perfect in-car entertainment experience. There were many who were interested in us, amazed by the devices that a small Eastern-Europe country could offer. 

  • The WorldDAB events are perfect opportunities for Dension to showcase its DAB portfolio. Since we expanded our DAB family, it was the first time we could present the new arrivals at one of the WorldDAB exhibitions. This time we visited Munich where we introduced our DAB+A and DAB+M solutions as well. Dension considers direct product testing and demonstration an important matter, that’s why we prepared demo displays so representatives could try out products on the spot! We received great feedbacks, thank you!

  • Based on our previous participations and the soil fact that Dension is an experienced OEM and aftermarket solution provider in the field of automotive electronics and DAB integrations, we were invited to perform at one of the WorldDAB events, more precisely to Ljubljana, Slovenia. We mainly focused on the current state of digital radio broadcasting, challenges and problems regarding in-car solutions and offering help from our side by presenting the Dension DAB family. Although the event originally was addressed as a meeting point for broadcasters, thanks to our presentation we received great interest and feedbacks in regards of our products.

  • We would like to inform you about our latest compatibility news: we made the DAB+U compatible with our Gateway 300 device! Now it’s possible to offer digital radio together with our USB and iPod integration for older cars which do not have factory USB input.

     

    This means 277 new compatibility for DAB+U including car brands like

    Audi | BMW | Citroën | Mini | Opel | Peugeot | Seat | Škoda | Volkswagen

     

    ➱ For exact compatibility please check our database on compat.dension.com and set your filter to Gateway 300. The side-notes may contain important information; make sure you check all of them! All the listed head units you see will also be under DAB+U compatibility from now on and here you will see the following note 'K300 configuration is compatible only if Gateway 300 is installed into the car'.

    ➱ Please do not forget to use our new K300 configuration file! The file can be downloaded together with other configurations if you click on the below picture. Or you can get it directly from our compatibility database compat.dension.com while browsing the DAB+U compatibilities.

    ➱ In case you would like to keep the USB functionality of the Gateway 300 you can also add the Connector port for DAB+U optional accessory (EXT2CP2).

     

    For the better understanding we also prepared a YouTube video with English subtitles check out its how-to now!

  • For Dension not only developing and producing devices are important but to connect people to these products, let them have an insight and make them understand how they work. For such purposes we went all the way to Fulda, Germany and participated at a local event where car related topics were discussed. There our Dension staff provided on-site technical support, focusing mainly on our DAB and Compact BT devices. It was a great experience, sharing our knowledge while ensuring help to other participants. Thank you for the opportunity!

  • It’s an important task for Dension to expand its boundaries, inform the world about our unique solutions and countless possibilities we can offer. For this purpose we visited Jakarta for the first time and had a great time connecting with curious and open-minded people. Our main goal was to look for distributors and resellers in Asia who would expand their portfolio with specialized Dension aftermarket solutions – the result was worth the trip! There was a great interest for our Gateway product line and our DAB solutions. Although digital radio just became available in the capital, still people are interested how to use this new technology. Dension is proud to be among the pioneers in Indonesia!

  • We are continuously updating our product portfolio so let’s start this year with some great news regarding our DAB product line!

    Last year we ceased the production of our DAB+P device as its application became outdated. We decided not just to update the software itself but to completely renew the hardware too. And this year we have ended the production of our DAB+R device. This widely used remote controlled DAB solution was a great success but we were able to incorporate its features into our newest DAB products.

    We are proud to announce the new DAB+A (DAB+Application) and DAB+M (DAB+Mobile) devices!

    DAB+A (DBA1GEN) is controlled over BTLE by your phone's application (Android/iOS) or with an optional remote control. This replaces both the DAB+P and the DAB+R as it supports both usage.

    DAB+M (DBM1GEN) goes even further, besides all the features of the DAB+A it also acts as a hands free solution and can stream music over A2DP.

    For more information please head over to our Automotive products/Bluetooth hands free solutions then DAB radio solutions.

  • A partner conference is always a great way to bring the company and its partners closer together. Involving them in our current processes, discussing actual matters and finding answers together – both sides benefit of such events. And based on our partners’ feedbacks it was worth the effort! The partners could enjoy themselves for two whole days with the Dension staff while being provided quality care. We welcomed our guests with a get-together event on their arrival day to make them accustomed to our wonderful city and also to set a pleasant mood.  On the first day a conference and discussion section was held: we provided wide-ranged and informative presentations regarding our company’s latest activities, newest and most popular products, related marketing strategies, future ideas as well as current possibilities. The second day was meant to take some action on company grounds: the workshop was the perfect place to chat leisurely with our Dension staff while trying out actual products in-car and through our demo boxes. Thanks to this two days journey, we could learn many things from our partners which will be a great addition to our future plans!

  • As always we represented Dension at the annual WorldDAB assembly, sharing and receiving information on the future of digital radio. Among others, our in-car DAB+U device has an excellent reputation throughout Europe, thanks to its wide-ranged compatibility scale, it’s still a unique solution on the market.

    We are also working on new possibilities, how to expand while renewing our DAB portfolio. Thanks to events like WorldDAB, we can gather information fragments and feedbacks on market needs as well. There will be an announcement shortly on our progress, stay tuned!
