Scala, a provider of end-to-end software solutions for digital signage and advertising management, says it will exhibit its new Scala Release 5.1 software with support for Windows 7 at the Integrated Systems Europe 2010 show, February 2-4, in Amsterdam.

Building on Scala Release 5, which supports a new range of low-cost media appliances, Scala Release 5.1 expands the capability to take advantage of Microsoft's latest operating system. Scala Designer, Content Manager, Player, Broadcast Server, Bridge Server and Ad Manager are now compatible with Windows 7.

Scala Release 5.1 includes nearly 100 new transition effects and a new user interface for choosing them, according to the company. It also provides a list of the most recently selected transitions. The new Transition Visualizer shows the user a real-time preview of the effects as they are selected.

A new scheme for player-pairing has been implemented in the new release Bridge Server for IAdea Media Appliances. A simple four-digit code is all that is needed to connect a low-cost media appliance to a Scala network. This is supported on IAdea High Definition Players, IAdea Standard Definition Players and IAdea Wireless Photo Frames.

Scala says it has also has improved its built-in template support to allow users to select an audio file in a templated message. Release 5.1 also features improved Web services for real-time data integration of play logs with third-party systems and JPEG thumbnails of any media item or message in any resolution. Player Disk Space Management has also been added to support the new class of low-cost solid-state players, such as those built into many of the newest Samsung LCD monitors.

Release 5.1 is expected to ship before the end of Q1 2010.
