(September 1, 2016) – What is described as “a powerful new companion to EAS” will be explained in a free webinar on Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2016, from 2-3 p.m. EDT.
The Advanced Warning and Response Network (AWARN) will provide broadcasters with a new tool for distributing geo-targeted rich-media alerts to enabled fixed, mobile, and hand-held devices. AWARN will bring features that make emergency information – including EAS – more attractive for television broadcasters and more useful for their audiences.
At the invitation of the NASBA,
members of the AWARN Alliance will conduct an exclusive webinar for NASBA members, stations, and SECC’s. This one-hour webinar will provide a one-stop overview of AWARN’s advanced alerting capability based on the new ATSC 3.0 standard, also known as Next Generation Television.
NASBA members, managers of television stations, and members of State Emergency Communications Committees are invited to attend. Advance registration is not required; to join the webinar click here. Thanks to the National Association of Broadcasters for the use of their WebEx.
