DVEO's Ad+EAS Serter Selected as a Finalist in 27th Annual San Diego Connect Most Innovative New Product Awards

Ad+EAS Serter with Channel in Box Features Inserts Emergency Alerts, Video Clips, Graphics, etc. on Video Content

October 01, 2014 --
DMN Newswire--2014-10-1--DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), announced today that its ad inserter and EAS emergency alert system, the Ad+EAS Serter, has been selected as a finalist in the Communications and IT category for the 2014 Most Innovative New Product Awards, sponsored by CONNECT.  CONNECT, a regional program that catalyzes the creation of innovative technology and life sciences products in San Diego County, continues its twenty-seven year tradition of honoring San Diego's leaders of innovation and groundbreaking new products with the annual award.



The Ad+EAS Serter is a broadcast quality playout server with Ad and EAS (Emergency Alert System) capabilities.  It inserts emergency alerts ? plus video clips, text, graphics, and RSS news feeds ? anywhere on video content, live, on a schedule, or via signaling like SCTE 35 signals from EAS generators.  



It adds messages to one to four targeted SD cable or on-air channels or sub channels, or to one to four IPTV SD channels.  (An option for 1 HD and 3 SD channels is available.)  The high density system is available for three video formats -- DVB-ASI, IP, or SDI.


The Ad+EAS Serter is designed for broadcast studios, cable head ends, and IPTV operators who require an easy to use EAS messaging system to communicate with their subscribers.  The system is currently deployed at a major cable company to originate important messages to the entire subscriber base.  

The system is compatible with Trilithic, Sage, and Monroe EAS Alert generators.  EAS audio from EAS systems is spliced into live audio, and emergency audio messages are sent to viewers.  

"We are excited to be one of three finalists in our category for the very prestigious Most Innovative New Product Awards," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO.  "With the Ad+EAS Serter, our customers can reduce the cost of ad insertion in IPTV and digital broadcasting.  Traditional methodology relied upon post production work flows.  In the digital world, ads are inventoried and inserted in real time."

"For 27 years CONNECT has been hosting the Most Innovative Products awards and each year the entrants just keep getting better -- this is one of the most competitive fields we've seen for MIP yet," said Greg McKee, CEO of CONNECT.  "Annually, through the MIP awards, CONNECT proudly presents to the community the innovations and ground-breaking products being developed in San Diego."

The 2014 Most Innovative New Product Awards received generous support from lead sponsors Ardea Biosciences and Cubic, as well as supporting sponsors including Barney & Barney, Cox, CBRE, D&K Engineering, Kaiser Permanente, Knobbe Martens, Merck, Nextivity, Pfizer, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Procopio, Qualcomm and San Diego State University.
