Press release date: April 2, 2014

Ad+EAS Serter™ with Channel in Box Features will be Introduced at NAB 2014

San Diego, California -- DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), is now shipping the latest version of its ad inserter and EAS emergency alert system for DVB-ASI or IP.  DVEO will debut the new Ad+EAS Serter™ at Booth SU2903 at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show, April 7-10, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Ad+EAS Serter functions as a simple playout server with Ad and EAS capabilities.  It inserts emergency alerts – plus video clips, text, and graphics – anywhere on video content, live, on a schedule, or via signaling like SCTE 35.  It adds messages to one to four targeted cable or on-air channels or sub channels, or to one to four IPTV channels.  The high density system is designed for broadcast studios, cable head ends, and IPTV operators who require an easy to use EAS messaging system to communicate with their subscribers.

The cost-effective Windows® based system is compatible with Trilithic™, Sage™, and Monroe™ EAS Alert generators.  It works by decoding the transport stream, overlaying the graphics, and transcoding the result.  Alerts can be overlaid anywhere on H.264 or MPEG-2 video content.  Messages can be quickly revised in real time, to give viewers critical updates -- such as safety precautions, evacuation notices, and locations of assistance centers.  EAS audio from EAS systems is spliced into live audio and emergency audio messages are sent to viewers.

"Our newest version of the Ad+EAS Serter supports both splicing and ad overlays.  Emergency alerts and messages can be via industry standard methods.  It also features a SLATE function that puts up an empty background on which you can type messages," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO.  "This system is currently deployed at a major cable company to originate important messages to the entire subscriber base."

The system ships with a graphics creation application but uses most graphics formats. Graphics can be created in several formats, although bitmaps and ".pngs" are preferred.  The position of the graphics, transparency, and fade characteristics can be configured via the management console.  Easy drag and drop placement positions logos, text, or graphics on screen.

Graphical elements can be inventoried on the on board hard drive.  Large local graphical libraries can be created for quick use under dynamic real world events.  For example, the hard drive can store maps showing evacuation routes.  The system is also able to mask the entire screen with a static image in case of video input failure or auto bypass via relay.  Graphical elements such as fancy boxes, borders, background colors, and identifiers can be used to enhance emergency messages.

The Ad+EAS Serter is also suitable for Public Service Announcement crawls, and as a very flexible video messaging system to a subscriber base.  DVEO can also create customized systems to meet customer's needs.
