Best of Show: EAS at the Edge

Three companies partner on a fresh approach

We are featuring the products that won the Radio World Best of Show Award at the 2024 NAB Show. Winners were chosen by a panel of engineers and RW editorial staff for their innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. information about how the program works can be found in an FAQ here

Digital Alert Systems, Telos Alliance and Nautel demonstrated a fresh approach to simplify broadcasters’ EAS implementations via software standards and AoIP-based techniques. 

“Utilizing a unique hybrid network edge approach provides practical benefits while preserving critical public safety functions and adhering to current and ever-evolving FCC regulations,” they said. 

“Unlike legacy approaches that have remained unchanged since the 1990s, EAS at the Edge places key and critical hardware at the ‘edges’ of an air chain and brings the emergency alert process into the modern AoIP world by leveraging IP-based content distribution and control.” (The Radio World ebook “The Software-Based Air Chain” features a white paper explaining the concept.)
