Digital Alert Systems Unveils Three Updates
All upgrades will be part of company’s NAB Show display
March 10, 2017
LYNDONVILLE, N.Y.—Digital Alert Systems has a trio of its systems ready to bloom with new updates as spring comes close to rolling around.
First is the release of the version 3.1 software upgrade for the DASDEC system. Version 3.1 makes the EAS/CAP platform able to support MPEG-DASH message playout. With the addition of MPEG-DASH, it is now possible to switch the internal MPEG encoder to provide a constant stream to maintain continuity with downstream encoders and other devices. The upgrade also provided the Alert Agent with improved handling of rare alert cases, as well as a new audio-normalization function matching audio levels in analog and digital alerts and security and logging changes to make the system compliant with CAP server mandates in both the US and Canada. All current version 3.0 customers can upgrade to version 3.1 for free.
There has also been an update to Digital Alert System’s optional Custom Message Plus software, now rebranded as Custom Message Pro. With its new name, the system can now store message contents and display parameters as named templates, as well as a new interface.
The third updated system is version 3.0 of the Audio Management System. New features with the AMS offer more refined compliance with the 21st Century CVAA. Improved connectivity, stability and logging are also expected as part of the upgrade.
All of these newly updated products will be on display at the 2017 NAB Show, along with other Digital Alert Systems products like the DASEOC M series, DASDEC II emergency messaging platform, and Multiplayer four-channel audio player and program switcher.
