A COVID-19 Relief Program For EAS Products


Digital Alert Systems, known for its emergency communications products for broadcast media, has instituted a “Price Relief Program” for its family of Emergency Alert System (EAS) devices.

To help ensure that critical emergency communications are “as robust and reliable as possible” through the COVID-19 pandemic, the company reduced the price of its Version 4 software upgrade for DASDEC-II or One-Net SE EAS devices.

The Price Relief Program is valid through June 30.

“These are challenging times for our broadcast and cable customers, and a strong system for alerting and warning the public has never been more critical,” said Bill Robertson, DAS’s VP/Business Development. “By upgrading through our new Price Relief Program, customers who might be facing economic or operational challenges can ensure their EAS equipment is properly secured, fully compliant, and up to date.”

The Price Relief Program will enable Digital Alert Systems’ customers with older, noncompliant software to upgrade to the latest Version 4 at $396 per device. Version 4 is an essential upgrade that includes all current FCC EAS compliance requirements, including the latest EAS event codes, as well as the required changes for national alert handling (Dynamic Validation Window.

Version 4 also includes a host of security and operational upgrades and an upgrade of the underlying operating system.
