Radio World this month profiles the recipients of our 2010 "Cool Stuff" Award.

Alerting is a big deal right now, given all the activity on the regulatory side and our nation's ongoing need for reliable emergency information.

The DASDEC-II improves on the company's original system of integrated receivers, range of hardware interfaces, software upgrades and network-based design. The new unit uses common information exchange protocols and offers a range of physical connections and third-party interfaces.

"This flexible emergency messaging platform provides multiple, simultaneous access with tiered security using any standard Web browser on PCs, Macs, even smartphones," the company says, "eliminating special software, steep learning curves or IT support."

The MultiStation software option allows one unit to replace five legacy EAS encoders, "achieving EAS compliance for up to five unique stations or channels regardless of location for a tightly integrated centralcasting environment."

Jim Heminway and Bill Robertson are shown.
