Why is my content appearing as monochrome on my display when it appears as full color in Venus Control Suite?

Question

  • Why is my content appearing as monochrome on my display when it appears as full color in Venus Control Suite?
  • Why are my messages showing up in color after I create them in the Web Compositor but as red/amber out on the board?

Environment

  • Venus Control Suite Daktronics Hosted
  • Venus Control Suite Local Hosted

Answer/Steps

  • You have a monochrome display.
    • If you use the free Daktronics Media Kit, then the images/videos in the media library will be full color, but when you publish them to your display, they will show up in shades of your monochrome color. 
    • If you create content in the Web Compositor using colors besides the color (red/amber) of your display, then the web presentations in the media library will be full color, but when you publish them to your display, they will show up in shades of your monochrome color.
