2 min read

MALVERN, PA, USA, Scala, Inc., today announced the extension of their digital signage solutions to include a line of powerful, secure Scala-branded media players and commercial tablet products. The addition of Scala-branded players – as well as new software licensing and hardware bundling options – will address the current market climate of competitive pricing and ever-improved deployment on a global scale. Scala, part of the STRATACACHE family of companies, will offer four tiers of pricing options with the new players, consistent with the number of player outputs and resolution capability. Scala is announcing the player solutions in conjunction with participation in Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), a tradeshow attended by a “community of manufacturers, distributors, integrators, service providers and end-users,” where Scala is showcasing reinventing communications with digital at Hall 8 – Stand K227.

“The addition of our own hardware to our digital signage offering will be of particular interest to those attending ISE, as it enables our partners and end users to create flexible, cost-effective solutions that also uphold the highest standards in reliable, scalable digital signage solutions,” said Chris Riegel, Scala CEO. “We recognize the need to evolve and face the changing, competitive market head on. Adding Scala players gives customers the complete solution to create and deploy successful digital projects of any size. We’re combining our long-standing expertise in selecting and configuring robust hardware with STRATACACHE’s logistics ability to launch our own integrated hardware solutions.”

The Windows- and Linux-based players will be released throughout 2017. Scala Enterprise version 11.03, with a projected release at the end of the first quarter 2017, will feature foundational support for these new hardware devices and supporting software licenses. Scala’s next major release, projected for early 2018, will feature enhancements aimed at greater device management. Specifically, users will note a new user interface, increased functionality and high-level device monitoring and reporting.
