Utah Scientific offers stand-alone EAS insertion
Utah Scientific's MC-40 HD/SD channel-branding system is being used by a growing number of broadcasters as a stand-alone device to provide dedicated emergency alert system (EAS) presentation downstream of an existing master control switcher.
The MC-40 accepts the EAS text and audio messages from an EAS decoder and performs keying plus audio message presentation on its own, without the need for additional equipment, thus affording streamlined, cost-effective operation. Based on Utah Scientific's MC-400 system, the MC-40 features two keyers, an internal logo generator and an audio clip store.
