Scala Designer is the fastest, most cost-effective solution for creating truly dynamic content for digital signage. You can create professional media in an attention-grabbing environment for virtually any type of display by incorporating your existing media files into a Scala script. While your Scala network does not require that your content come from Designer, it is the best way to create rich, professional content that can be changed quickly and easily without sacrificing any attention-grabbing appeal.
