Reach Everyone, Wherever They Are

With the InformaCast mass notification system, you can ensure your critical notification reaches the proper audiences by sending it to multiple communication devices. This layered approach increases the odds that an emergency notification is read and critical information is delivered during emergencies.

Reach your people, wherever they are, including:

At their desks

  • IP Phones
    • Receive live or recorded audio on IP phones capable of listening for, then playing, audio stream sent over a multicast IP address and port.
  • Cisco IP Phones
    • Receive live or recorded audio as well as text alerts on Cisco IP phones.
  • Desktop Alert Software

In Your Buildings

  • IP Phones
    • Receive live or recorded audio on any IP phones capable of listening for, then playing, audio stream sent over a multicast IP address and port.
  • Cisco IP Phones
    • In addition to receiving audio, display text alerts and allow confirmation responses
  • IP Speakers
    • Broadcast mass audio and scrolling text notifications to every speaker or specified zone. Create as many zones as you'd like and individually control the volume of each speaker.
  • Overhead Paging Systems
    • Integrate existing analog speakers to send a critical audio notification and configure paging zones using the InformaCast Legacy Paging Interface.
    • Utilize the Night Bell feature to alert overnight staff when there is an incoming call. The security team can choose to return to the desk and answer the call or remotely dial the directory number from another phone.
  • Digital Signage
    • Override digital signage during emergencies to display pertinent information and reinforce other critical notification devices. More...
