The Council of the Federation in Moscow has launched a digital signage network powered by Scala to modernize its internal communications. Working with Scala Certified Partner Dismart, the Council installed a five-screen digital network that not only increased its efficiency for information and news distribution, but also helped reduce expenses associated with paper and printing.
Dismart chose Scala 5 as the best software solution to meet the Council’s digital signage needs. The Council currently uses Scala Content Manager and Designer for content development and translations, and it uses three Scala Players to broadcast the news and information. To capture the largest possible audience, the Council installed screens in high-traffic areas, including near elevators, in the restaurant and outside the conference hall.
The screens provide timetable information regarding meetings and the discussion topics of the meetings, the decisions that were made during the meetings, news from the Council of the Federation, and general news items from around the country and the world.
Moving forward, the Council is exploring adding an emergency alert component so that the digital network can also operate as a crisis center, providing senators and government workers with up-to-date information in case of urgent situations.
The Council’s strategy to switch from paper to digital communications has had two positive effects on the Russian Parliaments image. It is setting a good example of executing a cost-effective communication policy that preserves public funds, and it is contributing to the environmental protection of Russia by moving away from using paper as the Council’s main communications medium.
