New DASLC and DASLCR Offer Radio and Television Broadcasters Core EAS/CAP Functionality in Compact Low-Cost Package
LYNDONVILLE, N.Y. -- March 1, 2011 -- Digital Alert Systems (DAS), a division of Monroe Electronics and a leading innovator of next-generation Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) and Emergency Alert Systems (EAS), today announced the release of two new models in the company's DASDEC(TM)-II family. The new DASLC and DASLCR provide core EAS/CAP functionality, offering dual monitoring inputs and analog-only switching in a compact, low-cost 2RU package equipped with key features that have made the DASDEC-II emergency alert platform a popular choice among broadcasters.
"Built on economical designs that keep costs down, the DASLC and DASLCR models make DAS technology available at the lowest price yet," said Bill Robertson, business development manager for Digital Alert Systems. "As a result, radio and television facilities can make a smart investment in proven technology and be assured that they are equipped to meet EAS/CAP requirements easily and cost effectively."
The new DASLC offers broadcasters critical functionality in a low-cost design, and the DASLCR provides the same functionality and two integrated high-performance AM/FM/WX radio receivers in a space- and cost-saving package. Both units meet all FCC Part 11 rules and conform to FEMA CAP V1.2 and IPAWS 1.0 standards, allowing broadcasters to reduce headaches and substantially improve operational efficiency for slightly more than adding a CAP converter to their legacy EAS equipment.
