Subject: Some broadcast CAP-usage news


FYI (last time I checked CAP was part of this system, although this may
not be the case since I don't see it mentioned).

Cheers

CHANTILLY, VA, and Nashville, TN - August 10, 2005 - SpectraRep, a
leading provider of solutions for the broadcast delivery of IP video,
rich media and data over digital television and satellite, and Nashville
Public Television (NPT), an independent, community-licensed public
television station, today announced that they will partner to provide
alerting, training and emergency management capabilities to Nashville's
Office of Emergency Management (OEM). 

NPT and SpectraRep will work with the Nashville Metropolitan Government
to develop a training and emergency alerting system called NPT MetroCast
for use during the City of Nashville and Greater Nashville Homeland
Security District 5 2005 Emergency Preparedness Challenge on September
23 and 24 in Nashville. The system will use several toolsets provided by
SpectraRep with the goal of deploying a wireless all-hazards
preparedness network for emergency management and ongoing training. 

The NPT MetroCast system will use several toolsets provided by
SpectraRep, including AlertManagerTM and IncidentOneTM, which both allow
for the delivery of real-time information. AlertManagerTM is an
emergency notification system that securely and reliably sends EAS,
AMBER, weather alerts and other information to broadcasters for
redistribution to the general public, as well as directly to government
offices, schools, hospitals and other sites. Alerts can be distributed
in text, audio and video formats, along with data files and other
emergency information. IncidentOneTM provides access to training content
and the latest data on effects, protective gear, and response measures
for hazardous chemicals, biological and radiological threats, and
explosives. 

The NPT MetroCast system will be deployed to support the City of
Nashville and Greater Nashville Homeland Security District 5 during
their 2005 Emergency Preparedness Challenge, one of the nation's largest
local disaster preparedness exercises for emergency responders in
Davidson, Williamson, Wilson and Sumner counties.
