Digital Broadcast delivers disaster recovery system to WJAC

Digital Broadcast recently completed installation of its SafetyNet Disaster Recovery System at WJAC in Johnstown, PA. The system enables WJAC to broadcast directly from its transmitter site in the event the station site becomes inoperable as a result of emergency situations such as storms, communications interruptions or mandatory evacuations. SafetyNet provides automated master control functions at the transmitter and enables playout control from a portable computer located at a completely different site.

During normal operations, a communications computer located at the station communicates with Digital Broadcast’s MediaFire Server located at the transmitter. The communications computer regularly updates the SafetyNet with new content over the network. A MediaFire remote client provides complete control of the system from a different location.

In the event the station site is disabled, the WJAC schedule will play automatically from SafetyNet. The playout schedule can be loaded from traffic or from the remote client, which can edit the schedule as well as control a switcher and a server.
