Travis Air Force Base Enlists Capital Networks for Internal Channel and Emergency System

Travis Air Force Base, located in Solano County, California, awarded the contract to setup their Commanders Access Channel (CAC) and Emergency Alert System to World Media Net & Affiliates LLC, an authorized agent of Markham, Ontario-based Capital Networks Limited.

World Media Net & Affiliates LLC provided Capital Networks' Audience software platform to create the show as well as the management and scheduling of content. The multi-zone channel provides a variety of information including on base events, welcome messages to visiting VIP's, local weather information and specifically targeted messages depending on the current alert status of the base or military over all. In addition, military news from various sources informs viewers of breaking news and events.

A live video zone is utilized to present a combination of pre-recorded messages, PSA's or a live video feed. Travis AFB has elected to incorporate live scheduling of The Pentagon Channel, utilizing a satellite receiver provided by The Pentagon Channel.

The new channel is broadcast to all military offices, security stations and base housing. World Media Net & Affiliates LLC worked with the local cable provider to bring the signal to the base cable providing signal base wide on Channel 26.

The Audience platform also provides Travis AFB the ability to simulcast the Commanders Access Channel via the internet to the over 14,800 active duty, reservist and civilian employees assigned.
