5.4 Points of Emphasis
1. Up to 5,000 events can be entered within one schedule.
2. Add Item adds a new entry to the bottom of the schedule.
3. Insert Item adds a new entry before the currently selected line in the schedule.
4. To sort a schedule based on column headings, click the column heading.
5. The computer checks the schedule once every minute to find all scheduled sequences.
6. The available event options are: SQ7 (sequence), Dim (dims the display), Bright
(brightens the display), Blank (blanks the display), Rot (allows a sequence to be
displayed on a rotating basis) and SD7 (schedule).
7. The schedule operates on a 24-hour clock, beginning at 12:00 a.m. and ending at 11:59
p.m. The Start Time cannot be later in the day that the Stop Time. For example, if a
sequence is to be displayed from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., it needs to be entered twice.
8. The schedule runs through the last second of a minute. If a sequence should stop
displaying at 6:00 p.m., set the Stop Time to 5:59 p.m.
9. Multiple rotation sequences can be set; however, only one rotation file can run at a time.
10. If the display has a photocell, Daktronics recommends using the photocell instead of the
scheduled Dim option.
11. When choosing the Dim option in the schedule, the Scheduled option must be selected in
the Display application. To check this, open the Display application in the Venus 7000
Shell. Go to Control > Dimming and make sure Scheduled is selected.
