Scala Inc., the industry leader in end-to-end digital signage software, announced today the sponsorship of the NEC Display Solutions Summit 2007 in Itasca, IL, May 9 - 10. The conference, hosted by NEC Display solutions, a leader in supplying flat-panel LCD screens to the Digital Signage Industry, brings together vendors, end-users and industry press professionals to discuss the challenges of implementing digital signage solutions.

As a Partner Program Sponsor of the conference, Scala will be highlighting its next generation digital signage software platform, Scala InfoChannel. Scala continues to exceed customer expectations around the world and is now poised to gain an even wider industry lead. InfoChannel further extends the benefits and ROI of digital signage and corporate communications networks around the world.

The core of the InfoChannel software platform is 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 functionality that benefit 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 real-time rendering at the "point of playback" ensures smaller files 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.

"Success in the exploding digital signage market is dependent on business partnerships with hardware, screen manufactures, and system integrators throughout the industry," says Gerard Bucas, President and CEO of Scala Inc. "Our business around the globe is enhanced by the close business partnership between Scala and NEC."
