Compared to the analog voice paging technology still being used by many fire and EMS departments across the U.S. to communicate emergency incident information to responders, the technology demonstrated at NAB Show enables more efficient, reliable and secure delivery of emergency information, with better coverage, significantly advancing the current state of the technology. Leveraging ATSC 3.0 datacasting, first responders will be able to deliver a massive volume of data quickly to many receivers at the same time, allowing them to reach the public faster during an emergency.

The NAB Technology Innovation Award, established in 2009 and judged by the NAB Technology department, honors organizations that bring advanced technology exhibits and research and development demonstrations of significant merit to NAB Show that have not yet been commercialized.
