Powered by Scala this is quite easily the largest digital signage network ever built in Cyprus…
It comprises more than 330 LCD screens and just over 40 x Players running Scala 5.
We understand that all of the media distribution accross the airport is done via Minicom Digital Signage’s DS Vision 3000 infrastructure running up to 600m full HD. Scala players are placed in a secured, climatized room where they belong to be safe and to reduce OPEX and TCO.
What is interesting here from a Scala perspective is that Scala are not normally known for being able to deploy synchronised solutions but here one can see that they have done that and have done quite a good job.
Rumour was years ago that Scala only lost out to C-nario on the JFK Airport solution becuause of that fact. Scala of course continue to sell themselves short – making little or no mention of the fact that they can meet challenges like that (that capability is also very popular of course on DEPs).
Talking of C-nario, they are are most definitely one of those software vendors that has recently gone missing in action; no-one we know seems to have come up against them on any deals in Europe – rumour is that they are looking at Russia as a new playground. Let’s hope they have better luck there.
