TFT Distributes CAP-to-EAS Converter
San Jose, CA - Jun 15, 2007 - TFT has made available a CAP-to-EAS converter called the Model 2008. The unit was designed by Hormann-America of Martinez, CA. Hormann-America is a designer and manufacturer of community warning systems.
The FCC recently adopted an order that may require EAS participants to accept messages using the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) once FEMA adopts standards. CAP is a protocol that uses XML (Extensible Markup Language) for origination and dissemination of emergency messages.
The Model 2008 connects to a CAP feed via the Internet and optionally by other means, processes incoming messages and sends them as audio to an FCC type-approved EAS encoder/decoder. Broadcasters can use their existing EAS equipment with the addition of the Model 2008, in the same manner as they would connect a radio receiver.
