Digital signage content manager software on computer


$SE $P allows you to play back you digital content as scheduled from $CM.

Scala Player software delivers stable and reliable 24/7 playback even if your network connection goes down. By sending content directly to media players using store-and-forward technology means never having to worry about blank screens. As part of the digital signage management system, Scala Player also keeps a log of events for simplified ad billing and error tracking and has the ability to update on-air without interruption. Utilize real-time data insertion for news, weather and updates to keep your content current.

This aspect of the content manager is compatible with both Linux and Windows. Scala Player also delivers smooth sub-pixel movement and does not download the files as a whole. Saving only the changes that were made, the software mitigates choppiness and eliminates unnecessary content. This seamless interface can also play back interactive videos on a touchscreen monitor for ease-of-use.

For more information about the current release of $P, see Player 12 Home.
