Hypersign releases new emergency alert system to work with its new IPG Gateway. This new software has been specifically designed with the K-12 educational system in mind.

Hypersign software allows you to take over full control of the display system with a push of a button. In the event of inclement weather, a fire or an intruder, school administration can display appropriate emergency alerts to every Hypersign digital signage display, classroom computer, teachers tablet, and paging system in 500 milliseconds. The alerts can be deactivated at any time and the displays will go back to their preprogrammed content. The Hypersign Emergency Alert software can also be used by the school administration to take over the displays for campus wide announcements or special news.

The IPG Gateway system interfaces using a standard cat5 patch cord with a single RJ45 connector and fan out cable to connect to alarm triggers within a facility. Each IPG-T unit can service up to 4 physical triggers.

When an event happens, the appropriate school faculty will issue an alert that will then travel to the IPG Gateway. Once it reaches the gateway it will be transmitted through the school’s network to the connected devices. The alert will display visual instructions along with audible messages to the overhead paging system. By being able to get this information out quickly Hypersign can potentially save lives in an emergency situation.

Lance Taylor, Director of Instrumental Technology in Laurens County District 56 says, Hypersign has been a great product because it gives us the ability to have multiple video feeds and we have displays in all the classrooms that we can take over at any time if we have any announcements that need to be made. I would recommend Hypersign because it works.

AVIONEX Software is an award winning software product development company focusing on building product that improves the lives of people. The Hypersign product is known for its intuitive interface making it the perfect digital signage solution for education (K12 and higher Ed) and healthcare. Hypersign, and other AVIONEX software products are available to purchase from AV Integrators throughout the US and Canada.

Wenatchee, WA (PRWEB) November 14, 2007 has become an important source of health and medical information for consumers. While the primary focus of the website has been covering the most common medical conditions, such as heart disease and cancer, they have also focused their efforts on monitoring breaking news about new drugs. Recently, for example, the website reported on a popular fat removal drug treatment known as lipodissolve, which hasn’t been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Today announces the launch of its Healthcare Education Campaign: How to be an Informed Consumer.

“Last month we launched our Consumer Health News Monitoring Program, a broadening strategy where we not only track scientific breakthroughs and new drug approvals, but lawsuits and medical warnings as well,” says Bill Francis, a senior editor for “Now we want to go a step further by launching a new initiative aimed at educating consumers based on the findings of this monitoring program.”

The monitoring program has tracked cautions from leading medical organizations warning consumers against the use of lipodissolve, also known as phosphatidylcholine injections or injection lipolysis. “When a warning is issued about a new drug, feels it necessary to spread the news. Public awareness about the safety of new drugs is our main concern,” Francis says.

Lipodissolve is meant to remove small deposits of fat through a series of phosphatidylcholine-based (PC/DC) injections. has been keeping a close eye on the treatment ever since the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts endorsed a ban in September against physicians administering lipodissolve unless as a part of an FDA-approved clinical trial. The ban has since been temporarily enjoined based on an appeal by a lipodissolve business but remains under review.

Last month, the Physician’s Coalition for Injectable Safety issued a consumer warning about lipodissolve. The alert advises consumers that FDA-approval is critical for any pharmaceutical injected into the body. Dr. Julius Few of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, a member of the Coalition warns, “these should not be mistaken as an accepted medical or cosmetic treatment of localized fat reduction” and “are unproven medical treatments.” In addition, the safety of lipo-dissolve has been under scrutiny by other major medical societies, including the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Both discourage doctors from administering the injections because the drugs are not FDA-approved and long-term effects of the drugs have not been documented.

One lipo dissolve advertisement claims “lipodissolve is becoming popular with the elite and is an ideal treatment for celebrities and royalty,” so it’s no wonder that the treatment is growing in popularity. Staff at want to make sure that consumers know the details before choosing for or against any new drug, including lipodissolve. “The average person may not know the facts behind a drug or procedure and therefore are unable to make informed decisions or even ask the right questions,” says Francis. “We believe consumers base their decision on advertisements and patient testimonials, not scientific data. We want to prevent this from happening.”

A search on the website reveals that Dr. Roger Daily of The Physician’s Coalition for Injectable Safety warns consumers that “[lipodissolve] is not FDA approved nor has it been formally tested for predictable results or safety. That alone should steer customers away from the marketing hype.” To prevent consumers from being overwhelmed by what he calls “hype,” encourages patients to ask questions and do their homework when considering any medical procedure, including lipodissolve.

“Online research helps, but one must be wary of the source of the information,” warns Francis. “Look for balanced sources and weigh out the pros and cons of the medical procedure on your own.”

As a part of this Healthcare Education Campaign, has listed a set of questions outlining what a consumer should ask a physician before receiving any type of drug treatment ( “Our company is devoted to informing the public by providing up-to-date information on medical conditions and new procedures and treatments,” says Francis. “We hope these questions will help consumers make the most informed decisions. After all, you only have one body, so be educated on what you’re doing to it.”
