  • PDF

Trans-Lux BoardTrans-Lux Corporation unveils its TL Control Digital Display Platform. More than just a software system to create or administer content for digital signage, the integrated TL Control Platform provides the means to manage the entire process including template authoring, playlist building and preview and playout.

TL Control Digital Display Platform renders broadcast quality graphics and video in real time with the capability to change individual content elements without requiring entire video segments to be re-rendered. The TL Control Template Maker is PowerPoint compatible for high-end digital signage production and allows operators to author content (includes video, animation, graphics, audio, live data and ultra-smooth text, or crawling tickers).

A single, easy-to-use interface allows building playlists, updating template information and scheduling content delivery to any player or group of players on the network. Updating template content can also be automated using pre-defined rules for easier management. Operators update and manage content with point-and-click simplicity using the TL Control Web Screen Software.

The TL Control Digital Display Platform system supports live video inputs from multiple sources (including cameras, cable/satellite feeds or DVD players) and can output the signal in analog, NTSC/PAL, DVI or HD-SDI formats. It automatically downloads and stores all content locally, allowing uninterrupted playout in the event of a network disruption. The system is also designed with an automatic recovery feature (player can self-diagnose and resolve system errors without operator intervention).

The Eight Pillars of Scala

  • PDF

Scala ConferenceTeatro alla Scala in Milan is one of Europe’s famous venues for performing dramatic opera. The International Scala Conference, a digital signage lovefest, brought some theatre of its own to its annual conference in Netherlands.

In front of 300 attendees from 45 countries, Scala wasted no time in playing out its biggest scene: CEO Gerard Bucas will retire and Tom Nix becomes the man in charge of digital signage’s largest software platform.

That change at Scala’s helm caught many offguard and probably overshadowed the real drama, the real opera that is playing out in the digital signage market where Scala is a major actor.

The “theatre playbill” that outlines this drama is a slide from their Scala presentation at the conference: the Eight Pillars of Scala strategy. Where goes Scala, there goes the industry…which is what makes these eight “pillars.”
