Highlighted solutions in booth #2508 include:
Scala media players: These devices were designed from the ground up to work with Scala software and deliver superior performance for its class. Optimized architecture delivers high performance throughout the entire lifetime of the media player. Robust 24×7 operation ensures you are always able to deliver your visual communications.

Scala content accelerator: New Scala-branded multimedia caching devices ensure reliable, timely delivery of rich media experiences and are backed by the expertise and technology of SuperLumin, a STRATACACHE company featured in a partner booth.

Consumer Insights: Analytics dashboards of the solutions running on the show floor, including session time and upsell conversions, are updating in real time using our in-house marketing analytics platform, part of last year’s Walkbase acquisition. All the insights gathered are flexible and customizable to examine your KPIs and assist with marketing and retail strategy definition.

Outdoor Digital Displays: High quality and manufactured in the USA, our outdoor digital displays have a life expectancy of 10 years and feature a modular design, allowing all components to be field serviceable in 15 minutes or less. Durable and rugged, the fixtures operate 24/7 in any environment and weather condition. The sensor-rich design gives deeper understanding of customer behavior and even predicts when something might go wrong.

Interactive Display Coolers: Display full-motion video to attract shoppers to the cooler containing the featured product. Content can include a short game which highlights and promotes the items inside the cooler, fully visible behind the transparent glass. Monetize the display content to generate ad revenue from partner brands. The Primasee coolers and freezers come in multiple sizes for flexibility in deployment in various retail store footprints.
