At the 2016 NAB Show, Digital Alert Systems will showcase its new DASDEC™ Version 3.0 software upgrade for advanced EAS/CAP compliance.

Fully compliant with upcoming 2016 FCC requirements, Version 3.0 is the perfect upgrade to the perfect EAS/CAP system.

The new Version 2.0 of Digital Alert System's Audio Management System (AMS) provides a number of additional functions customers have requested for more refined compliance with television's 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA).
