TelVue's HyperCaster Offers On-Air Emergency Notification

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) MOUNT LAUREL, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/14 -- TelVue® Corporation (PINKSHEETS: TEVE), the innovation leader in Television and Internet Broadcasting for communities, cable operators, and media companies announces the release of the Emergency Notification Console for the HyperCaster SDI Broadcast Server -- giving community leadership the ability to quickly add on-air emergency video text messaging on High-definition and Standard-definition TV channels.

"What an important tool we now have! Now we can remotely send tickers such as Flash Flood Warnings immediately to air, which we couldn't do with our old broadcast automation playout," says Bill Maffit, Technical Coordinator for Na Leo ?O TV in Hawaii. "Mahalo for the new Emergency Notification feature." "Emergency notification for communities is a key responsibility for local broadcasters," explained TelVue President and CEO Jesse Lerman. "By building this feature directly into our flagship HyperCaster SDI broadcast server, municipal, community, and other hyperlocal broadcasters can save precious time in getting emergency messages to the viewing public." The Emergency Notification Console allows a TV station administrator to grant key personnel (e.g. the police department, the mayor's office, office of emergency management) the authority to compose a text ticker message that "crawls" across the screen, overlaying any ongoing video programming. The emergency text message is typed into an easy-to-use web interface, with no interference or access to the rest of the broadcast server's management interface.

In addition to emergency notifications, the HyperCaster SDI's built-in graphics feature allows station managers to add station identification "logo" graphics and any number of informational text "crawls" across the screen. For simulcast delivery of a single programming channel in both High-definition and Standard-definition, on-air graphics are automatically presented in the proper resolution.
