New Mobile EAS Coalition Weighs in with FCC
The newly formed Mobile EAS Coalition filed comments with the FCC calling for a broader approach to emergency alerts that utilizes Mobile-DTV capability.
Mobile EAS Presented at APTS Public Media Summit
M-EAS, co-developed by PBS and field tested at three public television stations, will further expand the long-time role of public television in reaching citizens in emergency situations.
M-EAS at Emergency Preparedness and Hazmat Response Conference
M-EAS participated in the emergency preparedness conference in Baltimore, informing and educating first responders and emergency response teams on the potential communications capabilities using M-EAS and Mobile DTV technology.
Combining our experience in digital broadcasting with our public policy expertise, we are helping to bring mobile digital television to the market. At CES 2013 we demonstrated how television on-the-go is made possible by using the free MyDTV app with the new iPhone/iPad adapter.
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.
