ZeeVee is now offering an update that makes Emergency Alert System (EAS) capability available across its ZvPro and HDbridge2000 series at no additional cost. This is done by integrating Monroe Electronics’ One-Net EAS System. By including EAS as a standard feature of its encoders/modulator, the emergency alert information is broadcast to all televisions being served and an operator can also use it to generate custom alert messages with Monroe’s Custom Message option.
In case you aren’t familiar with Monroe, the company has a line of EAS/CAP products for the campus and cable television marketplace. The Monroe One-Net is designed as a flexible emergency-messaging platform able to handle all EAS/CAP and custom alert messaging and keep pace with an ever-changing communication environment. With a standard Web-based user interface, the One-Net communicates via a network with a variety of digital devices. The system itself can be accessed via an intranet/Internet connection for monitoring or message uploads.
