About the Integrated Solution:
Trilithic Inc., and RGB Networks, have integrated Trilithic’s EASyCAST EAS System with RGB Networks’ Broadcast Network Processor (BNP) to deliver digital Emergency Alert Messages and graphics overlays for DTV and LPDTV stations.

With the EASyCAST and BNP interfacing with the broadcast digital multicast, all services in a broadcaster’s ASI stream will have graphical EAS overlays including audio substitution for all or selected program streams. EAS messages and graphics are inserted as MPEG-into-MPEG in real-time without the need to demux or decode the ASI stream. Trilithic’s EASyCAST EAS System along with the BNP, also enables digital multicast broadcasters for the first time to selectively target the delivery of EAS overlays to a single market or multiple targeted markets. Targeting specific transmitters or covering the entire market is now possible with this new system
