Automation system developer RCS and EAS/CAP equipment maker Digital Alert Systems say they worked together to interface DAS’ DASDEC-II EAS/CAP system with RCS’ NexGen Digital automation system. According to the release this will improve EAS event processing for users.
Furthermore, “Tighter integration of the DASDEC emergency messaging platform with RCS’ NexGen Digital radio automation software will allow broadcasters to minimize disruption to on-air programming — and any impact on commercial breaks and associated revenues — during automatic insertion of EAS events.”
RCS Executive Vice President of Development and Technology Chip Jellison said the manufacturer “worked hard to make sure all our stations have the most up-to-date and reliable interface for the next generation of EAS alerting and announcements.”
DAS Business Development Manager Bill Robertson joined Jellison in making the announcement.
