The University of New Hampshire (UNH), in partnership with New Hampshire Public Television (NHPTV) and the New Hampshire Department of Safety (NH DOS), has deployed a statewide public safety datacasting service based on an integrated technology solution from Triveni Digital.
Leveraging the ATSC A/153 Mobile DTV standard, the Triveni Digital solution enables the NH DOS to reliably deliver text messages and rich media content, including video files, audio, text and graphics, to police vehicles and base stations utilizing NHPTV’s statewide network.
In addition, with features supporting the new Mobile Emergency Alert System (M-EAS) specifications, the system will also be able to deliver emergency notifications as well as normal programming to a wide range of consumer mobile devices.
The comprehensive solution includes Triveni Digital’s GuideBuilder PSIP metadata generator, GuideBuilder Mobile metadata generator and Skyscraper DTV content distribution system. Triveni Digital’s GuideBuilder PSIP and GuideBuilder Mobile solutions provide UNH with a unified platform for managing ATSC Mobile metadata as well as PSIP information and have been integrated with Skyscraper for efficient content distribution.
The emergency alert information is managed and delivered by NHPTV in conjunction with the New Hampshire State Police.
