The emergency messaging challenge

Emergencies can happen at any time and when they do, you have to get your message out as quickly and reliably as possible. Communicating alerts, only when necessary and in an automated way has become standard in the digital signage industry. Emergency notification is the ability for an approved third-party system to take control of the screens to display a public utility or facility-restricted alert.

Our Solution

Be prepared for any situation with QL. Instantly display emergency alerts and notifications on screens located across the country, in your town, or in select locations within your premises. Automated emergency alert functionality is a subset of content automation.

QL offers at least three methods of triggering alert content:

  • The first is the connection with an CAP source like a building management system for offices or museums. As soon as the source triggers an alert, all data driven player switch the content shown on screen to alert media, either pre-created in the QL software or provided by the source itself.
  • The second method is using the QL Server API. The source of the alert is connected to QL Server for sending alerts directly to players, Less than a second between the event and the display on the screen, in a 100% automated way.
  • The third method is to create a small middle ware which interfaces with a physical trigger system and which, based on events, creates a data feed instructing Navori to publish the alert content immediately.

Emergency alerts and notifications – CAP compliance

The Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) is a secure and standardized data format for exchanging public warnings and emergency notices between alerting technologies. Navori QL digital signage software is CAP-compliant.
