This partnership will enable Exterity’s customers to integrate their existing IPTV video delivery with Scala’s award-winning digital signage software.
“Exterity is proud to partner with Scala and provide our customers with a tool to improve operational efficiencies and total return on investment,” said Mike Allen, Chief Technical Officer of Exterity. From an operational standpoint, the ability to seamlessly integrate and schedule Exterity feeds with Scala Content Manager extends the value of the digital network.
“Integrated digital media management presents a large opportunity for the corporate industry to communicate with guests and staff members,” said Gerard Bucas, Chief Executive Officer of Scala. “Working with best of breed products ensures clients get the benefit of a truly powerful solution, rather than a single solution that often addresses only part of the overall video distribution problem that our customers are facing.”
Attendees at IBC 2010 will have the opportunity to be the first to see Exterity and Scala in action at Exterity’s booth (IP721). IBC 2010 takes place Sept. 10-14, at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre, The Netherlands. To schedule an interview with Scala or Exterity about the new integration, contact Harry Horn at harry.horn[.]scala.nl.
