DTV And Homeland Security
New Jersey Network (NJN) and the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (OEM) have demonstrated a communications system that sends emergency messages at high speed to desktop personal computers through NJN Public Television’s digital broadcast signal.

Triveni Digital’s SkyScraper datacasting system powered the demonstration, which allows broadcasters such as NJN to deliver large amounts of data through its DTV signals. The demonstration was part of a project in partnership with the State of New Jersey Office of Emergency Management to send emergency management data to OEM sites located within the Emergency Planning Zone around the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station. The project is the first in the nation to utilize public digital television to enhance emergency preparedness for nuclear power plants. “

Communications via NJN’s digital television system is yet another tool with great potential to add to New Jersey’s homeland security preparedness efforts and protect citizens in times of an emergency,” said New Jersey Governor James E. McGreevey. “This cutting-edge technology holds the promise to allow emergency personnel to respond to an incident even more rapidly.”
