Original Press Release
Press release date: February 23, 2010
The DASDEC-IR system combines the feature-packed DASDEC-II system with the company's MultiStation(TM) software to support simultaneous or sequential forwarding of emergency alerts to all channels. The capacity to select sequential forwarding gives broadcasters the ability to schedule the alert to air on each channel at an appropriate time, without interrupting critical programs. And because the DASDEC-IR is a fully functional EAS decoder, each location's unit can process alerts independently if the connection to the central host system is lost or broken.
Digital Alert Systems, LLC was formed in October 2003 when the founders, involved in EAS/EBS since 1990, determined that IP-based technologies could lower the cost of EAS encoders/decoders, improve operations, and offer more avenues to increase the effectiveness of emergency communications in the future. The DASDEC(TM) emergency messaging platform was the result of this critical thinking and development.
In October 2009, six years from its inception and with more than 1,000 systems in broadcast, cable, IPTV, and emergency operation centers around the U.S., Digital Alert Systems merged with Monroe Electronics to further extend its product offerings and better serve their collective customers well into the future.
Based in Lyndonville, N.Y., Monroe Electronics provides R&D, manufacturing, sales, and customer service for the Digital Alert Systems brand. The company extends its hard-earned reputation for quality, reliability, innovation, and service to valued customers around the world. More information is available at www.digitalalertsystems.com.
