SpinetiX announce integration with Scala at InfoComm 2010

SpinetiX, developer of the Hyper Media Player hardware appliance, and Scala, the global connected signage company, have announced that their systems can now be integrated together to offer and create cost-effective, flexible and reliable digital signage solutions for a growing range of International markets.

Scala’s Content Manager 5 software platform can now deliver content to the dedicated open-platform SpinetiX HMP100™ hardware device. The HMP100 uses the SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) family of open-standard specifications that allows XML-based file formats to describe static, dynamic and animated information. Dealers and systems integrators responsible for specifying digital signage rollouts have another strong alternative to PC-based platforms when deploying a Scala solution with dynamic content.

Serge Konter, Marketing Manager, SpinetiX, comments: “Our Hyper Media Player technology turns any digital display into an autonomous and networked device. The very small footprint and the minimal energy consumption of our HMP100 have very low installation and operational costs. Until now, many Scala users were obliged to use PC-based players to display dynamic content and were not able to deploy the HMP100 in their systems. We are delighted that our new integration with Scala technology is now being made available.”

Gerard Bucas, CEO, Scala, adds: “The use of hardware appliances such as the SpinetiX HMP100 has a number of advantages for our customers. Compared to PC-based player solutions they offer lower running costs, and with no fan or other moving parts, reliability in the field can expected to be much higher. We’re excited to be able to offer our customers more flexibility when specifying their systems, and look forward to a long and fruitful working relationship with SpinetiX.”

The integration between Scala’s software platforms and SpinetiX hardware will make its international debut at InfoComm in Las Vegas from 9-11 June. The integration was also shown to partners at Scala’s EMEA Connected Signage Conference in the Netherlands on 26-27 May.
