At the 2022 NAB Show, Digital Alert Systems will unveil the third generation of its DASDEC flexible emergency messaging platform. Watch for full details on this new hardware — featuring a more modular design and several exciting innovations — in the coming days.
New! DASDEC™ Version 5.0 Software Preview
At the 2022 NAB Show, Digital Alert Systems will preview Version 5.0 of its Emergency Alert System (EAS) software. Version 5.0 is the beginning of a new and improved presentation and operator interaction, making the system more user-friendly and intuitive. In addition, the software features a completely updated and streamlined user interface, reducing many of the multitab configurations to single pages that are more manageable, substantially reducing clutter and creating consistency. The result is an interface that is more attractive for new users but still familiar to veteran users. More importantly, Version 5.0 will serve as a springboard for moving to a more contemporary and consistent user interface and for security improvements.
Visually Integrated Display Symbology — VIDS™ Technology
Digital Alert Systems will also showcase Visually Integrated Display Symbology (VIDS) developed by the NextGen Video Information Systems Alliance™ (NVISA). The recommended practice represents an industry breakthrough — a powerful and impactful new way of displaying emergency alerts based on easily discernable graphical elements.
The VIDS recommended practice is intended to enhance emergency information's impact, usability, and accessibility by incorporating graphical elements. NVISA aims to contribute to a more inclusive reach of emergency information that works for all audiences regardless of visual media, language, ability, or culture.
NVISA is a worldwide coalition of developers and manufacturers working to help accelerate the industry's evolution toward next-generation broadcast and OTT television systems. Alliance members are pooling their cross-industry expertise to collaborate, implement standards, and create best practices to help broadcasters accelerate their transformation toward advanced NextGen TV (ATSC 3.0) systems.
"Visitors to the 2022 NAB Show will see two new introductions: our latest generation of DASDEC hardware and a preview of the upcoming Version 5.0 software, both offering full 64-bit support. We've consolidated several customer requests that stem from idiosyncrasies that have bothered them for years. DASDEC Version 5.0 is the start of a transformative change! We've been looking to do this for a long time, and now we can showcase how it is coming to fruition."
