Scala’s InfoChannel 5 features content management enhancements

Scala unveiled InfoChannel 5, featuring the InfoChannel Content Manager and other authoring, network management and playback enhancements. InfoChannel 5 provides streamlined interface/workflow, rapid template-based content authoring, content management (including new channel planning/scheduling modules), a 3-D-based rendering engine for improved visual quality, and performance and multiple independent output channels per remote Player PC.

InfoChannel still features an authoring option that provides the fast content; support for both interactive (kiosks and touch-screens) and passive displays; support for both terrestrial and satellite IP-based networks; and flexible integration with external databases (e.g. POS) or other external systems (e.g. legacy systems) using VBScript, JavaScript or Python. InfoChannel’s real-time rendering at the “point of playback” ensures smaller file sizes, coupled with intelligent file transfers, dramatically reduces network bandwidth requirements.
