The following License Functionality tables show the available features and functions for Scala Enterprise players. While some functions are only available through your Content Manager license, many player related functions can only be activated through player licenses. To view recommended pairings between licenses and players, see the License Compatibility Charts.

Player licenses are divided into 3 tiers:

  • Lite
  • Standard 
  • Advanced

The following table describes each license tier.

* ScalaScript is the scripting language and file format used by Designer when creating media files that contain scripting, automation, or implementations of touch screen buttons. If a player has a Lite license, that player will not play any media files that have a ScalaScript file type. However, you can use Lite license players with the message feature in a basic manner, which relies on ScalaScript templates. Refer to Using Messages for details.

Supported File Types by License Tier and Playback Engine Operating System

Scala Enterprise supports a variety of file types used for playback; however, some content may not be available for use on players running the Linux Player due to compatibility issues.
