Indianapolis, Indiana (Monday, April 14, 2008), Trilithic, Inc is pleased to announce efforts to adapt the EASyCAST Encoder/Decoder to send EAS alerts directly via IP to the Evertz HD9725LGA Media Inserters have been successfully completed. Broadcasters can expect a seamless EAS alerts IP solution using the Trilithic EASyCAST Encoder/Decoder and the Evertz HD9725LGA Media Inserter products.
After processing any EAS alert the EASyCAST unit will send the alert over Ethernet to the Evertz HD9725LGA Media Inserter for display on the broadcast stream.
