See the emergency ticker running at the bottom of this screenshot of the Concord Community TV channel?
A severe weather message was broadcast through the TelVue HyperCaster’s Emergency Notification feature, as Concord MA braced for last week’s Snowmaggedon. CCTV gave their town’s emergency team direct access to a ticker that runs across the bottom of their channel. The HyperCaster’s emergency notification feature allows designated users to update an emergency message from any browser connection – without having to see the rest of the HyperCaster interface.
And the Concord police were so grateful they tweeted this shoutout to CCTV:
“@CCTVMA thank you for allowing us to place messages on bottom of broadcasts. Great way to share info! #Communitypic.twitter.com/bqXxKtow6b

Concord, you’re welcome.
