Australia’s first Dynamic Stand Management System powered by Scala
The new facility is highly passenger-focused with the Perth Busport having a strong emphasis on passenger comfort. The underground lounge is divided into four sections, each with four stands, and operates using a DSMS to allow more buses to efficiently use the underground facility. This means, that from a passenger perspective, Perth Busport will work like an airport. The Scala driven Screens throughout the facility will notify passengers about which stand their bus will use, up to five minutes before departure.
Scala Independently Certifies Two Chrome Devices for Digital Signage Solutions
Scala’s certification process involves an extensive series of tests such as media compatibility, performance under both typical and extreme loads, long-term stability and robustness and thermal testing. The certification of the two additional devices allows for flexibility and assurance that end users are choosing the right device – a critical aspect of any digital signage solution – to meet their project specifications. Using the Scala platform, customers can easily deliver interactive HTML5 content, advanced scheduling and screen zone division with independent playback in each zone, creating an impactful way to communicate with their audiences. The devices connect directly to Scala Enterprise Content Manager, communicate over HTTP/HTTPS and offer maintenance statistics, health and logging.
