Check the label number on the bottom of your Scala Media Player-S. If there is a label that reads B363, this is a prior edition of the Scala Media Player-S. Details for the B363 edition of the Scala Media Player-S can be found in the Hardware Archives.

Single 1080p output media player with full device management and support for multi-zone, HTML5 and ScalaScript content. With an anodized aluminum housing and fanless design it’s protected from dust and debris making it an ideal choice for any digital signage solution requiring performance in harsh environments.

Operating System

Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2016 LTSC


Linux Xubuntu 18.04.02

Both operating systems have minor customizations implemented by Scala to optimize performance.


Recommended license: Single HD (Standard/SW-PST-HD01)

The Scala Media Player-S (B409) pairs best with a single-channel Standard HD license, which allows standard HD/1080p resolution while providing several more advanced features than a Lite license.

While you can use a Lite license with this player, the Lite license imposes some feature limitations.

As the Player-S does not support 4K playback, an Advanced UHD license will provide you with additional features but it generally will not improve picture quality above that provided by a Lite or Standard HD license.

With only one HDMI video output, the Player-S should be paired only with single-channel licenses. 

For details about the different licenses, refer to the License Functionality Matrix.


Setting up and configuring the SMP-S player requires you to first create a player profile in Content Manager. See Creating a Player for more information. This section covers hardware specifications and system functions, including configuration instructions by operating system.
