ScreenBeam® Introduces ScreenBeam Alert, Instant Urgent Notification Feature
ScreenBeam Alert, a free new feature integrated into CMS Enterprise, is designed to send urgent notifications simply and efficiently to ScreenBeam 1100 Plus and 1000 EDU receiver-enabled displays.
SAN JOSE, CALIF. — April 7, 2022 — ScreenBeam Inc., a global leader in wireless display and collaboration solutions, today announces the release of ScreenBeam Alert. Integrated into the Central Management System Enterprise (CMS-E), this new feature allows CMS Administrators to pre-emptively interrupt presentations, teaching sessions, conferences, and digital signage with important and time-sensitive notifications.
ScreenBeam Alert compliments your organizational Emergency Response Program, layering in an additional notification capability leveraging ScreenBeam receiver enabled displays. Alert is secured in that only your CMS-E Administrator has access to send and stop urgent notifications.
“Schools and Institutions are looking to improve the effectiveness of their Emergency Response Programs,” reports Mike Ehlenberger, VP ScreenBeam. “Immediately grabbing the attention of someone in a space with a highly visible notification and instruction, using ScreenBeam-enabled displays, adds additional layers of credible communication over current systems such as alarms, flashing lights, and intercoms.”
Site-wide, Site-Specific, and Groups of receivers can be notified.
ScreenBeam Alert, dependent on your installation architecture, can select your entire network, specific Sites, and Groups, ensuring that the audience is relevant to the situation, which may include:
- Severe Weather Alert
- Building Security Threats, including Active Shooter
- Fire Alarm or other urgent facility issue
ScreenBeam Alert notifications interrupt any current usage of the receiver, displaying a full red screen and the notification. Receivers must be reset by the CMS-E administrator, manually, or by a timed reset.
Clear text field messaging allows the CMS-E Administrator to follow any prescribed script or notification that is scenario dependent. Notifications can indicate situations like a Fire Drill or a Campus or Building Security scenario. Multiple alerts can be used for highly complex situations for real-time awareness.
For example, ISD Security has been notified of Tornado Warning near a specific school building. The CMS-E Administrator can isolate that building in the CMS-E tools, and send a message that reads, “Tornado Warning. Seek Shelter Immediately.” Once the warning has passed, the Admin can simply clear the alert, or send an “All Clear. Return to Classroom,” with a timer to clear and restore the receiver functionality, without involving school facilities outside the potential danger zone.

ScreenBeam Alert functions come free with the latest update to your CMS-E installation included with the ScreenBeam 1100 Plus and 1000 EDU receivers. Additional information and the product datasheet are available here.
