Electronic Art Named Scala Partner

CINCINNATI – Electronic Art has partnered with Scala, a pioneer in digital signage, to provide clients access to InfoChannel, the most widely-deployed digital signage software platform in the world. Electronic Art has been given a certified partner status to enable digital signage network management using the Scala InfoChannel tools. This high-end enterprise-level content management system for digital signage will allow Electronic Art to integrate large scale deployments with advanced content features built into the Scala toolsets.

Electronic Art already provides content, hardware and management of out-of-home networks using more simplistic tools, but this new partnership will allow their reach to include global deployments and rich data driven content. As a Scala InfoChannel Value Added Reseller, Electronic Art can provide Scala licensing, software, installation and support in addition to digital signage content. Scala-approved player hardware is also available in addition to the multiple LCD vendors that Electronic Art resells, such as LG, Samsung & Phillips.

“We are proud to be recognized as a certified partner of such a renowned company. Scala is cutting-edge and we are committing Electronic Art to be on the same level,” said Tim Burke, President of Electronic Art.

In November, Electronic Art employees traveled to Scala’s corporate office in Exton, Pa., to receive training on Scala’s InfoChannel and InfoChannel Designer software. This training ensures that Electronic Art can support all of their clients’ InfoChannel needs.

Vermont has more than maple syrup & kiosks

I just returned from the beautiful state of Vermont where I met with a new vendor that makes kiosks.  Wait, I should explain, they make “Mall Kiosks”, retail point of purchase enclosures, end caps, retail store fixtures, etc.,  not computer kiosks which is what Electronic Art does.   The quality of their workmanship is spectacular!  We are working with them on Digital signage content for their customers and kiosk applications.   It’s a great partnership that I’m excited about and hope to be able to introduce their services to our clients to bring greater value to our projects.

And while enjoying some Yankee hospitality and taking in the scenic vistas of Vermont, I realized that Vermont has a lot of trees.  I mean a lot… it is so green and natural that it is a bit amazing.   The state as a whole only has about 620K in population, which is only slightly more than all of the Greater Cincinnati area.  Seems like a good place to visit in the winter if you are a fan of Skiing!  I think I’ll be back when it gets colder.
