|EAS-Net Advanced Emergency Alerting (AEA) Module for ATSC 3.0
The 2019 NAB Show will also see Digital Alert Systems preview its new ATSC 3.0-oriented advanced emergency information module, an optional advanced emergency alerting (AEA) upgrade for the industry-leading DASDEC emergency messaging platform.
The EAS-Net AEA module will aggregate content (messages and multimedia) from outside sources and generate a station’s own messaging, all for transmission to AEA-enabled applications on ATSC 3.0 receivers. Adding the new EAS-Net AEA module to a DASDEC unit lets stations seamlessly integrate AEA capabilities into the next-generation TV standard, making it possible to reach targeted audiences in new ways with more detailed urgent and emergency messages and information, thereby adding another layer of value to the ATSC 3.0 experience. By driving the rich capabilities envisioned under the ATSC 3.0 standard by groups like AWARN, the DASDEC’s new EAS-Net AEA feature will enable next-level urgent communications from stations to audiences — with text, graphics, audio, and other advanced multimedia features — that provide a more interactive way of communicating emergency information that goes far beyond basic EAS. For example, stations will be able to wake up viewers’ displays for important alerts.
