Scala Is The De Facto Standard Software for Plasma.
You found the definitive website for issues concerning computers and plasma screens. Scala is the de facto standard software for driving truly large-scale networks of plasma screen signage. Scalable multimedia means that you can start out with one computer station for both creation and playback, then scale up to 10 to 50 remote playback locations for an advertising or corporate communication pilot program.
Produce Lots of Content Without Much Production.
When you are happy with your pilot program, you can scale your number of playback locations on your network up to hundreds or thousands of sites with plasma display screens, directly under your control and the control of your subordinates. You can deliver visually impactful, broadcast quality, television-like multimedia messaging without the tremendous bottleneck of continual video production.
PhotoShop With Effects Is More Effective Than Vectors.
But you might ask yourself, shouldn’t I use more “popular” software for signage networks? Flashy software like that used for vector-based animated graphics on the Internet? This is indeed a choice, but Scala has a unique approach that keeps production cycles fast and production costs low. Use digital photography, fonts, and “canned” clip-art and animation. Glue it all together fast and professionally, with the “guiding eye” of a talented PhotoShop artist. Add screen transitions, wipes, and fades for eye-catching motion. Do it with hardly any more skills than the PhotoShop artist already possesses. Do this over and over on a daily basis, rarely getting hung up on the complications and technical nuances of vector-based graphics.
Play Back Plasma Multimedia The Way You Designed It.
And best of all, design in a way that exactly shows you what it will look like at the playback location. That’s right! Put a plasma screen right on the desk of your artist. Scala maps pixel-to-pixel to Plasma screens. What you see is exactly what you get. There will be few differences in appearance, performance, or timing at the playback location (when keeping the hardware the same at both locations). Scala was born for plasma displays.
