Scala - DSE Booth #601 - Showcases Future of Digital Signage

Exton, PA March 07, 2012

At Digital Signage Expo (DSE) 2012, Scala, Inc. (DSE booth #601) will provide visitors the opportunity to experience and test exciting, new digital signage solutions. Scala will be showcasing a number of innovations that help organizations be bold in their digital signage to command attention.

The Scala solutions will include digital signage integration with predictive analytics, CxO boards that consolidate and display a custom broadcast channel of key performance metrics, social media connectivity, and ways to boost kiosk success by integrating compelling content. Retail, Quick Service Restaurants (QSR) and Corporate Communications will be among the application segments demonstrated at the Scala booth.

"Scala will demonstrate the future of digital signage by showcasing new solutions that we are introducing to the market at DSE," said Tom Nix, Scala CEO. "By combining complementary technologies, like predictive analytics, kiosks, mobility and more, with digital signs and displays, organizations can deliver unique personalized experiences that convey the right messages at the right time."

Scala will allow booth visitors to participate in an interactive digital signage experience. By scanning a QR code with their smart phones, visitors can access a digital display management tool that allows them to choose from various information bundles and determine what is displayed on the playback screens in the booth. This showcase demonstrates how Scala solutions can micro-target messaging to individuals. Participants in this interactive experience can enter a drawing to win a new Apple iPad 3.

Scala provides the leading platform for content creation, management and distribution in digital signage networks, and the first unified platform for advertising management of traditional and digital signage networks. Scala solutions allow customers to connect digital signage to a variety of data sources, such as CRM and ERP systems, to create new content constantly and automatically. The flexibility of Scala software makes it easy for organizations to customize digital signage to their specific business requirements.
