Scala extends industry standard platform to Equus & Panasonic PCs

Scala, Inc. (, the world’s leading software platform for digital signage, today announced preconfigured Microsoft Windows XPe for PC platforms from Equus and Panasonic. This furthers Scala’s commitment to overall system performance and reliability.

XPe is an optimized version of Microsoft Windows XP Pro specifically meant for embedded systems, such as Scala. “This embedded version has been customized through selection of specific OS components by Scala's R&D Team,” said Jeffrey Porter, Scala Executive Vice-President. “Because it’s preconfigured for Scala applications, customers will find this version of XPe to have a much lower Total Cost of Ownership compared to an off-the-shelf version of Windows XP Pro.”

XPe from Scala has been shown to deliver optimal performance in 24x7, non-stop system environments, while retaining the benefits and compatibility of industry standard Windows XP Pro.

Preconfigured XPe is available on the new ASUS Pundit-R Small Form Factor PC from Equus. This system is based on the high performance ATI RS300 chipset, providing outstanding graphics performance and support for most 16x9 resolutions needed for digital signage applications.

Preconfigured XPe is also available for the Panasonic Plugin PC VC250. Scala resellers will be able to purchase the PluginPC from Panasonic preconfigured and loaded with XPe.

Several Scala distributors, including ActiveLight (, will bundle Equus or Panasonic PCs with XPe for customers who desire a single-source for complete digital signage system components.
