Digital Alert Systems to demo Canadian bilingual EAS system at NAB Show
Digital Alert Systems will conduct a live demo of Canada's National Alert Aggregation and Dissemination (NAAD) System, to highlight bilingual visual and audio presentation of emergency alerts by the DASDEC-II emergency notification platform at the 2013 NAB Show.
The DASDEC emergency messaging platform delivers full support for Canada's unique Common Alerting Protocol messaging profile (CAP-CP).
Operated by Pelmorex Communications, the NAAD system provides Canadian government agencies with tools to issue public safety messages using the CAP-CP. The NAAD system validates, authenticates and aggregates alert messages into a data stream, which it distributes over the Internet and by satellite to ensure coverage across Canada.
The DASDEC-II monitors the NAAD system for alert messages and allows radio and television broadcasters to select emergency event types and the appropriate broadcast language, French or English.
