Designer Cloud’s Intuitive UI Empowers Any User to Create Engaging Digital Experiences
Scala announced the release of Scala Designer Cloud, a powerful web-based composition and design tool featuring an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface that enables the creation of compelling and engaging digital signage media. Scala first introduced Scala Designer, the PC-based software made for digital signage, more than 20 years ago as part of its core digital signage platform, Scala Enterprise. Today, Designer Cloud is the next evolution in the progression of a proven application that powers millions of digital signs worldwide.
Scala, part of the STRATACACHE family of marketing technology companies, provides the tools to create, manage and deploy powerful digital experiences in any environment including retail, quick-service restaurants, banking, transportation, gaming, corporate communications and additional key digital signage markets.

Designer Cloud is native to Scala Enterprise 12, allowing users to easily create publish projects to SaaS-based Content Manager with ease for scheduling and playback on Scala media players running on Linux or Windows. With Designer Cloud, content designers can also utilize assets from leading third-party design platforms, such as Adobe Creative Suite, to import content and optimize it for the digital signage mission.
