ChyTV Alert Graphics System Overview

The tower-chassis High-Definition Alert Graphics System from ChyTV is a high-definition alert graphics system with HD analog & HD-SDI video overlay, crawls, and remote alert generation. Ideal for PEG Channel (Public, Education, Government) emergency notification, the ChyTV HD Alert is a broadcast-quality graphics system designed to enable deployment of simple and efficient custom emergency alert information. The HD Alert System lets you pass through your normal programming while monitoring for external text-file based emergency information. If a designated text file shows up in a 'watched' folder, the ChyTV HD Alert system grabs the text information from the file, displays an appropriate overlay graphic on top of the live programming, and displays the text information in the file using high quality broadcast effects such as crawls, pushes, fades, etc. When the text file goes away, the alert message goes away. The alert can easily be generated remotely by any authority and requires no graphics/operational skills or training.

This HD Alert Graphics System supports a variety of video input / output standards, including HD-SDI, HDMI, analog component, S-Video, composite video, channels of AES/EBU audio, and four channels of balanced analog audio in and out. You also get a down-converted SD output. Standard format animations can be imported from various file types such as MPEG clips, GIF, AVI, TGA sequences, etc. All graphic pages can then be scheduled from a simple, intuitive scheduling interface for either automatic looping or date/time playout. This self-contained device is virtually virus-proof, requires no external computer connection, and ensures reliability & ease of use. Applications of the Alert Graphics System include local community, town meeting & public service announcements; local weather updates; community advertising; agendas & minutes; and emergency alerts.
