Alliance is a voluntary, international coalition of media, consumer electronics, and B2B technology firms and trade associations that have come together to utilize Next Generation Televisions, based on the ATSC 3.0 standard, for advanced emergency alerting, news, and information.
Developed by various Advanced Television Systems Committee members in parallel with the ATSC standardization process, AWARN
leverages ATSC 3.0's higher data throughout, more robust transmission and improved indoor reception.
To date, the AWARN
Alliance has served as a coalition of commercial and public broadcasters, consumer electronics makers, tech companies, and trade associations that's developing a voluntary advanced emergency messaging capability using the next-generation broadcast TV standard (ATSC 3.0).
At NAB 2019, in addition to the AWARN
Alliance's presence in Futures Park, AWARN
will be highlighted in the ATSC-CTA-NAB "Riding the Road to ATSC 3.0" exhibit in North Hall and Central Lobby and the U.S.
This agreement pledges expanded collaborations supporting broad deployment of Next Gen TV with AWARN
By driving the capabilities envisioned under the ATSC 3.0 standard by groups like AWARN
, the DASDEC's new EAS-Net AEA feature will enable next-level urgent communications from stations to audiences -- with text, graphics, audio, and other advanced multimedia features -- that provide a more interactive way of communicating emergency information that goes far beyond basic EAS.
