Monroe Electronics + ZeeVee—Incorporating EAS (SatBroadcasting™)

[SatNews] Monroe Electronics has announced that ZeeVee is offering an update that makes Emergency Alert System (EAS) capability available across its ZvPro and HDbridge 2000 series at no additional cost—the new update enables ZeeVee's competitively priced systems to interface with the Monroe One-Net™ SE EAS- and Common Alerting Protocol (CAP)-ready encoder/decoder via Monroe's unique EAS-NET™ protocol.

ZeeVee boasts a unique watermarking technology as well as the only Clear-QAM solution approved by DirecTV and Dish Network. The company has once again set the industry standard by including EAS as a standard feature of its encoder/modulators. Within the streamlined EAS workflow supported by this feature, the Monroe One-Net SE system receives emergency alert information, and then processes and transmits the proper EAS information to the ZeeVee encoder/modulators. From there the encoder/modulator broadcasts that alert to all televisions being served. A properly authorized operator can also generate custom alert messages with Monroe's custom message option.

With a wide range of EAS/CAP and A/V products, Monroe is a recognized leader in EAS/CAP equipment for the campus and cable television marketplace. The Monroe One-Net SE is designed as a flexible emergency-messaging platform able to handle all EAS/CAP and custom alert messaging and keep pace with an ever-changing communication environment. With a standard web-based user interface, the One-Net SE communicates via a network with a variety of digital devices. The system itself can be accessed via an intranet/Internet connection for monitoring or message uploads.
