CGS Infographics Automation
Closenow: This system automates the collection and distribution of weather-related school, business, church and activity closings. Designated officials have the choice to submit a closing or delay through an encrypted website log-in process, or through a password-protected, touch-tone voice-prompt system. Closing information is made available for station personnel in a Web browser interface. The system automatically updates the information to one or multiple station websites. Closenow also now has an automated voice synthesis feature to read the closings on air. In addition, CGS offers an optional service to deliver automated e-mail and/or text alerts to subscribers. A listener can opt in to receive alerts on a specific organization through a station's website.

Digital audio mixer/router
RB-DMX4: The RB-DMX4 is a digital mixer capable of mixing or routing four mono input channels into four mono outputs, or two stereo inputs into two stereo outputs. The inputs are sample rate converted to allow sources of different sample rates to be mixed. The flexible Mix Matrix allows for a wide variety of mixing options and creativity, using four blocks of four-way DIP switches to select which inputs are mixed or routed to which outputs. Each input has a trim pot. Audio presence LEDs around each input button give an indication of input audio level. There is one LED for each channel. There are also four presence LEDs around the monitor button that give an indication of output level. Additional gain can be added by accessing the output gain mode.
HB2 Series: The HB2 Series of subminiature pushbuttons offer full-face illumination and quiet actuation. The compact and contemporary series was developed in response to design engineers' requests for a smaller version of NKK's KP01 Series of pushbuttons. HB2 Series switches are SPST momentary devices featuring quiet actuation combined with a crisp tactile feedback. These pushbuttons come standard with either red/green or red/yellow bicolor built-in LEDs; the red/yellow combination can be combined to produce amber illumination. The LEDs are an integral part of the design and as a result, illumination is evenly diffused throughout.
