D.A.V.I.D. Distributes EAS as Text

D.A.V.I.D. Systems added Emergency Alert System support to its program-associated data functionality, allowing stations to display EAS alerts as text on RDS and HD-enabled radios, as well as on their Web sites.
The EAS Listener connects to EAS receivers via RS232 and monitors for incoming alerts. When an alert is issued, it formats the text and sends it to RDS-enabled radios via Program Service Text or Radio Text. HD Radio-enabled receivers also will display the text message.
Additionally, notifications of the EAS alert appear on on-air workstations so hosts can read the announcement from a desktop computer. Program directors and news directors are made aware of the alert, which the company says gives them the earliest possible opportunity to determine if special coverage is warranted by the event.
Also part of the module is an HTML export to allow stations to display the alerts on the Web sites and LED signs. It automates the logging of EAS messages received, as well.
