DAS Calls 'New' EAS Reports Old News
Radio World | July 10, 2012

   Digital Alert Systems says that recent news coverage about EAS is old and no longer accurate.

  Wired andArs Technica, and others, recently ran items about the hacking that occurred in February. In that case, an individual or a group used false credentials to hack into an EAS encoder/decoder of a Montana television station, programmed a false alert into the unit, which was then apparently aired by that station and others farther down the daisy chain.

JENNiRADIO: For Kids, By Kids
Radio | January 6, 2013

We use an Eventide BD500 delay and a Digital Alert Systems EAS. Most of the equipment we got from Disney was in immaculate condition, even though some had been around a long time, but one thing we needed to upgrade was the EAS. We moved from an older unit, which had paper jams and illegible printouts, as well as incompatibility with changing government standards. We opted for a four-channel DASDEC-II radio encoder/decoder, which let us replace everything, including the external receivers, because it has integrated radios. Now, even if government requirements are a moving target, we can upgrade our EAS through a simple software update.
