FOX continues testing the FOX Splicer Alerting API with the support of EAS ENDEC and Weather Alerting manufacturers. The manufacturers are able to initiate a test alert with an API over the Internet onto a live Cisco DCM in the FOX LAB and they can view the results using a Slingbox for monitoring of the output video.

Digital Alert Systems has successfully tested their DASDEC with the FOX Splicer System in the FOX Lab, including text crawls and EAS audio breakaway. Trilithic has successfully initiated a test text crawl on the FOX Splicer System during remote testing. Sage Alerting Systems also tested on the DCM, and has announced that an upgrade is now available for the Sage Digital ENDEC Model 3644 to use the FOX Splicer network API for alert crawls           

FOX is working with these same manufacturers to bring their hardware systems and personnel into the FOX Lab for testing with a full FOX Splicing System as soon as possible.
