NAB 2009, 20-23 April, Booth SL1420: Chyron (NASDAQ: CHYR) today announced the introduction of EAS-HD, a turnkey high definition solution for inserting high quality Emergency Alert System crawls and audio alerts in program streams.
Built as an appliance, EAS-HD supports all major EAS decoder devices including TFT, Sage and Digital Alert Systems. Communication between EAS-HD and the decoder device is either through standard serial or TCP connections. EAS-HD is fully software upgradable to provide support for future EAS protocols.
Standard audio mixing provides the user with the ability to include EAS alert tones from a decoder with relevant alert crawl data. Audio can then be embedded into the SDI stream or maintained as discrete AES.
EAS-HD features an optional redundant power supply and internal bypass in a rack mount 3RU chassis.
