What is Scala?

Scala is a digital signage solution providing customized digital communication to businesses including retail, hospitality, education, healthcare, and more. With solutions for any industry type, and fully customizable digital signage, Scala allows users to communicate their message, from multiple outlets, to both employees and customers from one central location.

Key benefits of using Scala

  • Benefit from 24/7 playback with the Scala content player, even during network interruptions or system updates. The player also downloads individual changes as they are made, rather than the entire playlist.

  • Target specific user segments, or even individual customers, and edit content based on real-time external events such as weather, traffic, customer gender, and more.

  • Create dynamic playlists (and sub-playlists) using scripts, messages, videos, flash or static images and manage the playlist from anywhere. Set user permissions so that only selected staff can make changes to the playlist.

  • Use the Scala designer tool to create dynamic content, combine text, graphics, sound, and video, add transitions, plan layout, create content in any language, create templates and publish.

  • Track player health log and log events for advertisement billing or reporting thanks to data communication between the player and content manager.

    The ideal programming for the specialized beginner

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    There are a large number of stages accessible for advanced signage. The battle is discovering one that addresses the issues for all specialty units in a venture. I've worked with a few signage organizations that offer bits of highlights, that must be conduit taped together to make a whole usable bundle. Scala appears to have everything under one rooftop, without being needed to acquire different equipment and programming suppliers to make everything work.

    Pros

    Scala is by all accounts one of the favored stages that our computerized media group employments. This makes it a simple choice when searching for an answer. Our group knows about the stage to such an extent that I have implicit help and usage help previously, during, and after the business cycle with the client. We're likewise ready to give configuration administrations to our clients, for those that might not have an in-house group to do this.

    Cons

    Nothing that I have found up until this point. I have had a few chances to create and propose Scala as a total advanced signage arrangement. The solitary thing that has been a drawback for me to date is that I haven't locked in my neighborhood Scala accomplice rep more. I realize that are a superb wellspring of data. I will make an objective to interface with my nearby rep/accomplice to make that relationship.

    Scala can be a great platform depending on your use case.

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    The Scala platform (Designer, Content Manager, Player) provides a great deal of out-of-box functionality for a variety of uses. Its main pros are flexibility, user interface, and scalability. Scala Designer gets you started quickly with creating and publishing content with support for many file types and a large library of built in transitions and clip art. Content manager allows you to easily organize...

    Cons

    Make sure you have a solid use case and understand what Scala can do out of the box and what you will need to develop to achieve your desired functionality. Scala provides functionality that can serve a variety of use cases, however, some will require more work than others. Basic video walls and simple signage (1 media item to the next) are well suited for Scala out of the box. However, more advanced playback behaviors (think if this then that kind of behavior) will certainly require custom script development which can be a challenge as ScalaScript is nowhere near as universal as developing in other languages. As mentioned in the pros, Scala Content Manager provides a logical user interface, however, nearly every setting requires and enormous number of mouse clicks to get things done.

    Scala is very good for managing digital signage

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    My overall experience with Scala has been very positive. Very easy to use, easy to learn, and gets the job done right. We have not had issues and will continue to use this service for our agency.

    Pros

    We have been using Scala for our agency to manage digital signage on our digital displays for over a year now and it is a very good program. The layout is easy to learn and use, has all the functions you need, and makes managing displays very easy. We can upload media files, transport them to specific channels (displays), and set the schedule of when they will run. Very good product overall.

    Cons

    Not much to dislike about Scala. Our marketing and IT teams have used this program for over a year and there are no issues or complaints about the program.
