Remotely Automated Alert System
Ideal for PEG Channel (Public, Education, Government) emergency notification, the ChyTV HD Alert is a powerful and affordable high-definition broadcast quality graphics system designed to enable deployment of simple and efficient custom emergency alert information. ChyTV HD Alert supports a variety of SD, HD and HD-SDI formats and lets you pass through your normal programming while monitoring for external text-file based emergency information. If a designated text file shows up in a `watched' folder, the ChyTV HD Alert system grabs the text information from the file, displays an appropriate overlay graphic on top of the live programming, and displays the text information in the file using high quality broadcast effects such as crawls, pushes, fades, etc. When the text file goes away, the alert message goes away. Nothing could be simpler or more efficient. The alert can easily be generated remotely by any authority and requires no graphics or operational skill or training.
Broadcast Quality Text and Graphics
The ChyTV HD Alert system is designed to be a cost-effective but high-end Bulletin Board system for local cable channels, communities, municipalities, PEG and other budget conscious television and video distribution networks. In addition to SD formats in and out, ChyTV HD Alert supports HD Component and HD-SDI in and out with graphic overlay on top of live video. Additionally, full screen graphics can be displayed with dynamic text, logos and animations. A versatile play-list scheduler allows for dynamic programming. The supplied ChyTV Tools user interface allows for direct control of a single or multiple ChyTV HD Alert systems. Professional Crawl overlays are broadcast quality, smooth and easily modified. Multiple Crawls can display simultaneously and can include graphics and logos.
Flexible and Reliable
Standard format animations can be imported from various file types such as GIF, AVI, TGA sequences, etc. All graphic pages can then be scheduled from a simple, intuitive scheduling interface for either automatic looping or date/time playout. Content is transferred to ChyTV via IEEE 1394 Firewire or Ethernet connection. This self-contained device is virtually virus-proof, requires no external computer connection and ensures utmost reliability and ease of use.
