At the recent NAB show, Harris showed a new version of the Sage Endec EAS system.
The new version is designed to handle both analog and digital signals for EAS distribution and adds remote control capabilities for studio-to-transmitter communications. IP connectivity also is added to allow broadcasters to use standard network components for log printing.
This eliminates the need to buy thermal paper required for traditional EAS systems with built-in printers, the company stated.
An analog-to-digital converter can be purchased for broadcasters who need a multiple-channel ready EAS platform for multicast channels, but prefer to retain their existing EAS platforms.
