Maine Public Broadcasting Delivers EAS Info With Triveni
Scalable system uses three components
PRINCETON, N.J. —Triveni Digital announced that the Maine Public Broadcasting Network is in the process of deploying a statewide public safety broadcasting service based on its SkyScraper DTV content distribution system. In partnership with the Maine Emergency Management Agency and the Maine Association of Broadcasters, MPBN will use SkyScraper to deliver real-time emergency alert system messages, including audio, video, and data, originating from MEMA headquarters to every broadcast operation center in Maine, providing TV and radio stations with immediate information to relay to their viewers and listeners.

The Triveni Digital SkyScraper provides a scalable end-to-end environment that supports point-to-multipoint digital media content distribution, with targeted point-to-point delivery. The system consists of three modular components—DataFab, DataHub, and DataReceiver—which allow publishers to organize content and target content to receivers; allocate bandwidth and insert content into broadcast streams; and extract content from broadcast streams and make it available to end users.

SkyScraper’s DataFab and DataHub insert EAS messages into the over-the-air broadcast stream from MPBN’s operations center in Bangor and distribute them to DataReceivers installed at participating broadcast centers throughout the state. From there, the information is forwarded to every station and its respective viewers and listeners. With DataFab, the MPBN can target messages to individual receivers, groups of receivers, or the entire network.
