Scala showcases new digital signage technologies for universities, small businesses

Scala will offer attendees a first-hand look at its latest digital signage innovations for universities and small businesses at InfoComm 2010, Las Vegas. Scala, a leading provider of end-to-end solutions for the digital signage and advertising management industries, will exhibit the e2Campus mass notification system and its new SignChannel software-as-a-service offering in Booth N2151.

For universities looking for emergency messaging capabilities, Scala will be offering live demos of e2Campus. Scala has leveraged the ability of e2Campus to deliver emergency messaging throughout a campus digital signage network powered by Scala 5. When e2Campus generates an emergency alert, Scala Players immediately relay important safety information to students, faculty and staff by way of an RSS feed.

Scala will also offer demos of SignChannel, which it acquired from Thinking Screen Media earlier this year. SignChannel provides an easy way for small businesses to understand the competitive advantages offered by digital signage. End users can begin with just one screen because the service supports Wi-Fi photo frames and low-cost media players. There are no installation costs, and software purchases and training are not required.

Scala is also announcing that Scala Content Manager 5 can now deliver content to the SpinetiX HMP100 hardware player. Under Scala, the HMP100 supports video playback of 720p, multi-zone layouts, RSS feeds and still images. It also provides SpinetiX support for SVG files, a family of open-standard specifications that allows XML-based file formats to describe static, dynamic and animated information. Scala Certified Partners and systems integrators responsible for specifying digital signage rollouts will soon have another option for playback technology, with an ultra-small form factor, solid-state device with very low power usage that keeps operational costs down.
