Welcome to the Venus Control Suite blog!
This blog is brought to you by the Software Training Group at Daktronics. Some of you may already know us from a training, talking with us over the phone or email, or maybe you’ve even been a subscriber to our Venus 1500 Blog.
We want to introduce ourselves and the Venus Control Suite
For those of you who don’t know us, we are trained, professional instructors who provide live and web-based trainings on Daktronics software. As I hinted at earlier, we also provide over-the-phone support and write a blog every week to help our customers get the most out of their Daktronics displays!
If you are a Venus 1500 user, then you probably remember that last July we posted about Windows 10 and how it could affect you. In that post we mentioned that a new software system would be launched soon.
Since then, so many of you have asked about switching over to the new software that we thought now would be a great time to tell you about it. If you are new to Daktronics, you may have been introduced to our new software system already!
What are the Venus Control Suite benefits?
Venus Control Suite is a brand-new software created by Daktronics that operates in the cloud. This means that as long as you have an internet connection and access to an up-to-date web browser, you will be able to access it on any device (desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) at any time, from anywhere!
It also means that you don’t have to worry about operating system requirements, downloading anything, or being stuck in your office on the computer all the time anymore. Now you can make your changes on the go from your mobile device!
And with a web-based system,Daktronics has the ability to continuously update the software with new features and bug-fixes as needed. And because Venus Control Suite is independent of operating system requirements, it will remain usable far longer than the previous downloadable control solutions from the last few decades.
Throughout this blog, we’ll be updating you about all the features you’ll find in Venus Control Suite. Can’t wait to find out more?

Trainer Tip: For those of you who don’t have internet access, don’t worry! Daktronics can provide a local copy of the software just for you! We do recommend that you try to get internet access, though, so you can enjoy all the features the software has to offer and receive updates when they are made available.
We would like to thank you for taking the time to read the very first Venus Control Suite blog post. We hope you find it useful! Be sure to check back tomorrow for another post with even more information on our latest and greatest software, Venus Control Suite! Thanks again!
