Content Production

Telecine LogoThe TELECINE team have been SCALA believers almost from the very beginning (20+ years!!!???).
We LIVE to create great content.
We THRIVE on challenges.
We LOVE finding solutions.
If you can imagine it… we can make it happen and make it great.

SCALA is the most powerful and flexible digital signage software in the world… however there are things even SCALA can’t do out of the box. Our team of programmers and graphic artists work hand in hand with the SCALA team… using SCALA scripting… software programming… not to mention stunning graphic design… to push SCALA to the edge and beyond.

Our work speaks for itself… great content and software… for multi-screen arrays… interactive kiosks… DS networks… and one-of-a kind SCALA installations of all types.

But wait… there’s more…

…we under promise and over deliver… never quit till its perfect… and we play well with others. Our work gets noticed and wins awards.

Telecine is always on the lookout for new opportunities to solve problems (we call them challenges)… do great work… and of course impress clients and audiences everywhere.

“If there is SCALA… there is a way”
Stephane Bastien – Technical Director

Jigsaw LogoJigsaw Interaction Design Lab (a division of 2C Visual Communications), transforms spaces, be they at events, retail stores, museums, corporate offices, trade shows, into inspiring physical environments that engage and entertain audiences through participation, interaction, play and surprise.

We blur the boundaries between design, physical environments, technology and storytelling.

The AUDIENCE, who is in the space and what you’d like to accomplish drives our process.

Technology is what we use as part of our toolset. We have developed several systems that strive to take the hassle out of technology by using management software and modularized hardware components. We’ve gone so far as designing and engineering unique stuff to make projects stand out – in 2009 we were recognized with a DIGI award to this end.

Our diVA™ software application manages and assembles the entire interactive experience while leveraging all the power you’ve come to appreciate from Scala InfoChannel. The end results are multi-dimensional user experiences without having to write tons of custom code.

We’ll bring a new dimension to your next digital signage project.

  1. We bring both technical and creative skills to projects.
  2. We are experienced at leveraging Scala in unique ways to create large scale user driven immersive experiences.
  3. diVA™ and Scala Player/Designer work seamlessly together – we’ll do all setup, customization and programming for you.
  4. Distance sensors and other inputs such as buttons and RFID tags can be used to trigger content changes and events.
  5. Integrated control for a multitude of supported hardware devices – DMX lighting, scent devices, fans, motors and more, all accessible from Player/Designer.

Saddle Ranch ProductionsSaddle Ranch Productions brings 27 years of experience in producing content for place-based media, converting from videotape to DVD in 1999 and to broadband digital in 2002.

a dynamic content strategy for digital signage. This proprietary process includes a 4-step “needs analysis” audit to map out a Customized Content Solution. This simple but invaluable process includes:

  1. Venue Profiling – Defining the engagement influencers within the environment.
  2. Audience Profiling – Customer targeting to create relevant communication strategy.
  3. Dwell Time – Face to Sign time utilized to produce appropriate segment lengths.
  4. Message – The content connectors that will motivate your audience to action.

A comprehensive TCM Audit helps identify opportunities to enhance your brand’s relationship with consumers by driving relevance, value, and truly connected messaging.
