DAS, RCS Partner on EAS Insertion

White Plains, NY - Sep 14, 2011 - Digital Alert Systems has entered a technology partnership with RCS to improve EAS event processing. Tighter integration of the Dasdec emergency messaging platform with RCS NexGen Digital radio automation software will allow broadcasters to minimize disruption to on-air programming - and any impact on commercial breaks and associated revenues - during automatic insertion of EAS events.

The RCS-DAS interface communicates EAS information between the NexGen Digital automation and the Dasdec over an IP network using Digital Alert Systems' exclusive EAS-Net communications protocol. When the Dasdec receives an EAS alert, it uses this link to pass the appropriate information to the RCS system, which in turn examines the active playlist, finds the next logical break, and seamlessly inserts the EAS event audio - eliminating any playout constraints over multiple channels.
