Content Manager

With Scala’s Content Manager, management and control of your network is both improved and simplified – reducing the resources required to control and maintain your network. Template support, plan-based content distribution, timetables, and playlists – keep you in control of your network from wherever you are in the world, from any Internet-connected computer.

  • Easy to Use Interface – Navigate quickly and easily with an intuitive and friendly web-based user interface
  • Templates – User driven content templates make it easy to rapidly create great looking displays by simply adding your own pictures and text. Your design team can create templates using variable data fields that authorized users can later populate and preview through the Content Manager interface.
  • Media Management – Organize your content by file type, categories and metadata so everything is easy to find
  • Playlists – Create playlists using Scala scripts, messages, videos, flash, or static images
  • Schedules – Define and edit playlist time slots with a simple graphical view. With variable recurrence patterns and start/end dates, scheduling your content couldn’t be easier
  • Emergency Messages – Messages can be set to override the display at specific times or when external events occur such as emergencies
  • Smart Playlists – Use player metadata to customize your content dynamically at each point of playback
  • Approvals – Approve content before media can be played. Selected users will receive an email when an approval is required
  • Smart Content Distribution – Content is delivered automatically with each player intelligently picking only the files that are new or have changed
  • Multiple Independent Frames – Easily create multiple frames within a display with each frame playing independent content
  • Multi-channel Support – Run two entirely separate channels from a single player, immediately reducing your hardware, OS licensing, and administration costs
  • Audio Control – Create audio-only channels or play background music that can be automatically ducked when video with its own audio plays
  • Reliable and Scalable – Easy to start small and scale up. Field-proven reliability with more networks installed than any competitor
  • Communicate Your Way – Both Terrestrial & Satellite (multicast) IP-based communication carriers are supported
  • Better Compatibility – Compatible with proxies and ACNS, and can deliver content over HTTP/HTTPS via IPv4 or IPv6 to meet most IT security requirements
  • Database / Backend – Choose the server and database that works best in your environment. Supported databases include MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and PostgreSQL
  • Player Options – Choose the playback devices that best suit your needs, from a full-featured PC to media appliance or digital picture frame
  • Player Management – Group Players by criteria (geography, demographics, etc.), set playback options and select content to play
  • Network Monitoring – Check the status of your network with Player Health Monitoring
  • Maintenance Scheduling – Conduct remote maintenance tasks such as reboot, send and retrieve files or install Scala updates. Tasks can be scheduled to execute at specific times with minimal disruption to your digital signage network
  • Web Services – Access to underlying software “engines” for anyone who wants to develop their own customized front-end to control content delivery or access. Content Manager is not just great for custom front-ends, but it also is useful for integration into many other processes and applications
  • Workgroups – Manage access to content for different departments so each group only sees the messages they are supposed to
  • Permission-based User Roles – Users can be assigned different access rights for improved security and workflow
