Digital Alert Systems Introduces Version 4 Price Relief Program


Digital Alert Systems has introduced an all-new Price Relief Program for its family of Emergency Alert System (EAS) devices. To help ensure that critical emergency communications are as robust and reliable as possible during the current COVID-19 pandemic, Digital Alert Systems has reduced the price of its Version 4 software upgrade for DASDECâ„¢-II or One-Netâ„¢ SE EAS devices. The Price Relief Program is valid through June 2020.

"These are challenging times for our broadcast and cable customers, and a strong system for alerting and warning the public has never been more critical. To date, there have already been more than two dozen COVID-19-related messages sent via EAS, which demonstrates the critical role of customers and their equipment as 'first informers,'" said Bill Robertson, Vice President of Business Development, Digital Alert Systems. "By upgrading through our new Price Relief Program, customers who might be facing economic or operational challenges can ensure their EAS equipment is properly secured, fully compliant, and up to date."

For a limited time, the Price Relief Program will enable Digital Alert Systems' customers with older, noncompliant software to upgrade to the latest Version 4 at a flat rate of only $396 per device, a price reduction of 20% to 60% depending on their current software version. Version 4 is an essential upgrade that includes all current FCC EAS compliance requirements, including the latest EAS event codes, as well as the required changes for national alert handling (Dynamic Validation Windo). Version 4 also provides extremely useful new features, like Triggered CAP Pollin and the Alert Agen, as well as a host of security and operational upgrades and a complete upgrade of the underlying operating system.
