Media & Entertainment

Scalar is the leading Canadian software solution provider for the Media and Entertainment Industry. We are your best source for software, consultation, service, and support in the film, TV, video, web, gaming, and interactive industries. We serve thousands of clients, ranging from freelancers and start-ups to some of the largest studios in the industry.

We have the expertise to provide solutions for common studio challenges such as:
  • Increasing demand for render facilities (HD, 3D, and large-format film)
  • High total cost of ownership to support these facilities (space, power, cooling, people)
  • Facilities are permanent and exist beyond individual projects
  • Facilities lie idle outside of these projects
  • Facilities date and technology becomes obsolete
  • Security must be maintained in an ever-changing environment
