Voice-centric Mass Notification System Partnership Announced

IMLCORP and Metis Secure Solutions LLC, providers of emergency notification systems, today announced a new partnership that will integrate their technologies to create a comprehensive indoor and outdoor emergency notification solution. The system will enable colleges and universities, military bases, commercial venues, and managers of other public spaces to send and receive emergency warnings with clear voice instructions of the highest clarity and intelligibility, both indoors or outdoors.

With the integrated solution, emergency managers will use the Metis Secure Command Center software to send an emergency warning to Metis Secure alerting devices and/or IMLCORP's SoundCommander loudspeaker systems. Both systems are easy to identify and select on the Command Center map-based interface software. Voice messages can be sent in three ways: pre-recorded messages, text-to-speech and live-voice. The integrated system shortens the steps necessary to send warnings inside and outside many buildings in seconds.

"Both companies passionately believe that intelligible voice instruction is critical to effectively informing and protecting people during an emergency. With this new solution the best indoor and outdoor voice notification is available today in one comprehensive system," said Mark Kurtzrock, president and CEO of Metis Secure Solutions.

"The integrated solution recognizes the need for multiple communications channels to reach everyone who might be affected by an emergency. Coordinating all messaging through a single, integrated source gives emergency managers the best possible opportunity to reach everyone in one way or another," said Stefan Pollack, president and CEO of IMLCORP.

The Metis Secure system is an integrated hardware and software solution that combines comprehensive Command Center software, two-way MS-5100 alerting devices and triple-redundant wireless mesh, Ethernet, and FM-RBDS communication technologies to ensure security personnel can communicate to anyone or everyone in seconds - not minutes.

IMLCORP’s SoundCommander high-powered mass notification and tactical loudspeaker systems are designed specifically to project the highest quality, most intelligible live voice and pre-recorded voice messages, in addition to broadcasting warnings and alert tones giving users clear, powerful sound with the capability to direct it where it is most needed.
