Second Generation Network-Centric Emergency Messaging Platform
The DASDEC-II from Digital Alert Systems (DAS) is the latest generation of emergency
messaging technology available. Developed by people with over 20 years in the EAS business
Digital Alert Systems knows what broadcasters need when it comes to EAS equipment – make
it simple, make it reliable, and make it affordable.
Web-browser user interface with
tiered security - no special software,
hardware, or IT support
Architecture supports simultaneous
monitoring by all users
Dual language support
Stereo analog and digital audio (AES)
switching with fail-safe bypass
Clock locked to atomic reference
assuring continuous accuracy
Stores 1000’s of events - with audio - in
non-volatile memory
EAS-NetTM compatible for exchanging
EAS data and audio
MultiStationTM option - One DASDEC
replaces 5 separate endecs
CAP - Common Alerting Protocol
software option
Up to 4 independent Ethernet ports enhances network performance
Internal triple tri-band (AM/FM/WX) high
performance receiver option fully
adjustable via user interface
Internal MPEG encoding option - direct
intertion into digital broadcast streams
Built for today. Ready for tomorrow.
The original DASDEC set the standard with its integrated receivers, advanced hardware
interfaces, simple software upgrades, and network-based design. The DASDEC-II improves
on this platform by leveraging common information exchange protocols and offering the on
broadest range of physical connections and 3rd-party interfaces in the industry. And the
DASDEC-II is designed with the future in mind, so when the inevitable change happens you’re
prepared with a host of additional hardware and software options. Here are some examples:
Use any standard web-browser on PC’s, Mac’s, even Smartphones1 - to view, change or
activate DASDEC functions – anywhere, over an IP network. No special software, steep
learning curves, or IT support.
With its optional three internal receivers2 , the DASDEC-II can monitor any standard AM/
FM/WX frequency, on any individual receiver with band selection, tuning, level adjustment
and even live audio monitoring over the network.
EAS alert details are presented on an integrated NTSC character generator3 screen, or
connect the DASDEC to a wide range of other 3rd-party CGs for crawling text overlays or
automation control.
An internal MPEG encoder option presents EAS text and audio for direct insertion into
digital broadcast streams saving money and complexity over any external MPEG encoder
Integrated stereo analog and digital (AES) audio switching with fail-safe bypass to pass
signals unimpeded in the event of power failure.
Four independent Ethernet network connections (speeds up to 1Gb4 ) more effectively
manage access and firewalls across domains without complex bridges or modifying
existing network equipment
EAS-Net software offers comprehensive EAS data and audio communication between
DASDEC and other EAS-Net compatible devices
Be first with breaking news – DASDEC’s unique and powerful software architecture
allows multiple users to monitor the situation in real-time, not waiting for paper printing, or
reading a small scrolling display. Everyone with access can see alerts as they’re
happening — SIMULTANEOUSLY. That’s right, all at the same time. And because you can
see the information without special software or displays, the number of users is virtually
Act locally. Think globally
The DASDEC-II with optional MultiStation™ software handles full EAS compliance for up to 5
unique stations or channels regardless of location; co-located – in the same physical location or anywhere over an IP-network. Visit our website or see the “DASDEC MultiStation for
Remote and Centralcasting” brochure for more information on this exciting technology.
Confidence in Compliance
Each EAS alert received and processed by the DASDEC-II is stored in non-volatile
memory. And we mean the complete message including the incoming audio! The
DASDEC also features a series of comprehensive e-mail tools to keep everyone up-todate and aware as well as connecting to a wide range of local or network printers
when hardcopies are needed. Forget managing multiple paper tape trails.
While the internal storage retains tens of thousands – several years’ of EAS alert
messages – there’s an array of external storage options available to further your
confidence in compliance. And don’t worry about setting or resetting the time, DASDEC
synchronizes its clock with an atomic reference to ensure it’s always accurate and
compliance is maintained.
CAP is coming. CAP is coming. CAP is here.
Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) is the latest in the ever-changing EAS landscape. As a
founding member of the EAS-CAP Industry Group (www.eas-cap.org) Digital Alert
Systems is on the forefront of this change. And, while the final standards are in flux,
rest assured the DASDEC-II is the right platform for EAS-CAP integration. Please note
based on final FCC/FEMA approach, it may require additional hardware or software not
currently included.
