Triveni Digital has announced that the company, PBS North Carolina, and Device Solutions Inc. are the recipients of the 2023 NAB Technology Innovation Award for "Demonstration of an ATSC 3.0 Solution for Emergency Paging".

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) honored the three entities for their groundbreaking, end-to-end proof-of-concept solution that delivers emergency digital pages leveraging ATSC 3.0 datacasting technology.

"We are thrilled to present the Technology Innovation Award to PBS North Carolina, Device Solutions, and Triveni Digital," said Sam Matheny, executive vice president and chief technology officer, NAB. "We've watched this technology develop from conception through design and now a real-life demonstration at the NAB Show. Winning the award is the culmination of the outstanding work from three industry visionaries."

The solution created by PBS North Carolina, Device Solutions, and Triveni Digital enables more efficient, reliable, and secure delivery of emergency information with better coverage, significantly advancing the current state of emergency paging technology. Leveraging ATSC 3.0 datacasting, first responders can deliver a massive volume of data quickly to many receivers at the same time, allowing them to reach the public faster during an emergency.

"We're extremely proud to be a part of this groundbreaking project," said Fred Engel, chief technology officer at PBS North Carolina. "We began this effort with Red Grasso, director of the First Responder Emerging Technologies (FirstTech) Program at the State of North Carolina. In an emergency, every second counts toward potentially saving a life, and with our solution, emergency notifications can be sent to first responders more efficiently, over a greater distance, and with more content than ever before."

"We're excited to bring this transformational ecosystem to life," said Chris Lamb, chief executive officer at Device Solutions. "As the world's first prototype ATSC 3.0 datacasting solution for emergency digital paging, our proof-of-concept solution will be a game changer for state and county emergency services, federal agencies, and broadcasters."

"We're deeply honored to win the esteemed NAB Technology Innovation Award," said Mark Simpson, president and CEO at Triveni Digital. "We want to thank the NAB for recognizing the pioneering work and collaboration that went toward creating an ATSC 3.0 solution for emergency paging."

Triveni Digital, PBS North Carolina, and Device Solutions were presented with the award during a special ceremony on April 17 at the 2023 NAB Show.
