Alabama Designates GSS Alert Studio for CAP-EAS Alerts
Montgomery, AL - Jun 15, 2011 - The GSS Alert Studio from Global Security Systems (GSS) has been designated the official origination and retrieval tool for Alabama's Emergency Alert System (EAS). Once generated in the GSS Alert Studio, the CAP-EAS messages are sent across the GSSNet dedicated satellite network to Sage Endec units in LP1 and LP2 FM radio stations across Alabama. The GSS Alert Studio can create and retrieve alerts in multiple formats -- WAV/MP3 files, live text to speech (including in Spanish), and live recorded messages -- that are disseminated on a national, regional or hyper-local basis to receivers of AM, FM and HD Radio signals.
In addition to dissemination of alert messages over the GSSNet, the GSS Alert Studio secured Web-portal design now allows the Emergency Operation Center (EOC) to create and distribute CAP-EAS messages statewide through a dedicated Internet broadband satellite uplink provided by HughesNet.
