Exton, PA (PRWEB) May 25, 2005
Scala, Inc. (http://www.scala.com), the worldÂs leading software platform for digital signage, today announced that NEC Unified Solutions is introducing a new controller for digital signage networks that is bundled with ScalaÂs award winning InfoChannel 3 software. The new BlueFireVC will significantly raise the bar over all other systems used today for controlling a network of flat panel displays.
Based on a 3GHz hyperthreaded Pentium 4 processor with 80GB hard drive and an integrated graphics subsystem from ATI, the new BlueFireVC will set a new standard for digital signage controllers. The BlueFireVC comes bundled and preconfigured with ScalaÂs InfoChannel 3 Player (Release 7.4) and Microsoft Windows XP embedded operating system, making it incredibly easy to deploy a successful digital signage network.
ÂWeÂre pleased to have ScalaÂs support in this major new upgrade to the BlueFireVC,Â said Russell Young, Solutions Manager for Digital Signage at NEC Unified. ÂFor our customers, life just got easier.Â
ÂWe couldnÂt be any more excited about the new BlueFireVC. With a compact Âhang on the back of the screenÂ form factor, the BlueFireVC allows each screen to be IP addressable without the need for big servers in the back room,Â said Jeff Porter, Scala Executive Vice-President. ÂItÂs a cleaner solution all around with awesome performance.Â
The new NEC BlueFireVC is expected to be available by the end of June from NEC Unified and their distribution partner ActiveLight.
