AWARN is based on ATSC 3.0, the Next Generation Television transmission standard. When fully deployed, can deliver geo-targeted, rich-media alerts to an unlimited number of enabled TVs, connected cars, and handheld devices even when cellular fails or the grid is down.
The AWARN Alliance is leading the way for using ATSC 3.0/Next Gen TV to reinvent emergency alerting, and ongoing emergency news and information.
Leading news executives discussed ATSC 3.0 and new tools for both sending alerts and providing on-going news and information after the alerts are sent. Discussion covered topics including opportunities for geo-targeting, automation, and reaching smartphones and connected cars. One thing was unanimous; everyone agrees that AWARN is leading the way for implementing ATSC 3.0.READ MORE
