With the release of Scala InfoChannel 5 – Scala continues to exceed customer expectations around the world and is now poised to gain an even wider industry lead. InfoChannel 5 further extends the benefits and ROI of digital signage and corporate communications networks around the world.

InfoChannel 5 introduces the brand-new InfoChannel Content Manager which together with other significant Authoring, Network Management and Playback enhancements ensures that this next generation of digital signage software offers unequaled new functionality that benefits both Digital Signage and Corporate Communications customers alike: streamlined interface/workflow, rapid template-based content

authoring, sophisticated content management including new channel planning/scheduling modules, new 3D-based rendering engine for improved visual quality, and performance and multiple independent output channels per remote Player PC dramatically reduces hardware costs at remote playback locations.

Of course, the traditional InfoChannel strengths that propelled Scala to its leading position in the industry are

still there and better then ever: authoring option provides the fastest system for creation of Dynamic Content in the industry; support for both Interactive (kiosks, touch-screens, etc) and Passive displays; support for both Terrestrial & Satellite (e.g. multicast) IP-based networks; flexible integration with external databases (e.g. POS) or other external systems (e.g. legacy systems) using VBScript, JavaScript or Python; and InfoChannel’s realtime rendering at the “point of playback” ensures smaller file sizes, coupled with intelligent file transfers, dramatically reduces network bandwidth requirements. Finally, Scala boasts over 30,000 InfoChannel Players driving hundreds of thousands of screens worldwide – talk about scalability!
