Mobile Emergency Alert System (M-EAS)
In partnership with LG/Zenith, PBS and Harris Broadcast, we are pioneering a next-gen mobile alert system that can warn millions of Americans when other technologies fail. We have worked to secure federal support and begun building-out a national, dual-use broadcasting network.
We assisted CPB in their efforts to establish a permanent home for the American Archive of Public Broadcasting. The Archive will preserve and digitize 60 years of national and local media content and seeks to make it accessible to the public.
