The future of emergency alerting, news and information
The AWARN Alliance is leading the way for using ATSC 3.0/Next Gen TV to reinvent how we warn people and provide them with on-going news and information in emergency situations.
AWARN SUMMIT: Developing a Voluntary Roadmap for Next Generation Emergency Messaging
In May 2021, the AWARN Alliance hosted a virtual Summit that, for the first time, brought together broadcasters and other media industry players with the nation’s largest alerting authorities to discuss advanced emergency alerting.
Harnessing the Power of the NEXTGEN TV Transmission Standards
