Subject: Any modern solution besides the TVs and EPICS alarm handler ?

At NSLS, we used TVs dedicated to important PV information 
display (e.g. alarm signals, radiation levels, ..etc.), which 
are controlled by non-EPICS IOCs.  Users love the TVs because 
the information is real-time independent of network 
problems, and 2) the display is dedicated so that it does not 
interfere with the operation control consoles. 


Before I take the effort to convert the non-EPICS TV control 
into an EPICS IOC, I would like to seek if there is any other 
morden solution in different facilities.  The alarm handler
that is provided by the current EPICS release
is not suitable in our control environment because 1) the users 
want to have a dedicated alarm screen for emergency 
control instead of taking the risk of shuffling the alarm handler
out of sight, 2) the alarm sound provided by the console computer 
is not lound enough in our control enviroment.  An audible 
output controlled by an IOC is required, 3) the real-time 
information and actions ensure the notification of the 
emergent conditions. 


Any comment or suggestion is highly appreciated.

Thanks, 
Kate
