Comprehensive NTCIP Messaging & Diagnostics
Vanguard® v4 Control Software brings ease of use to the next level with a complete NTCIP feature set and powerful interface.
Daktronics has had representation in the NTCIP Working Group since the standard’s inception in 1998. Through installing and communicating with thousands of NTCIP-compliant DMS, Daktronics has gained the necessary experience to make NTCIP integration simple. Vanguard v4 will universally interface with all NTCIP-compliant DMS. And, with improvements in NTCIP 1203 v2, controlling and diagnosing DMS has never been easier.
Developed with usability in mind, an intuitive graphical interface guides new users with little training, yet provides in-depth functionality for experts. After a display’s parameters are created, clicking each DMS opens powerful message creation, diagnostic and scheduling tools. More complex features can be made simple—facilitated by step-by-step wizards.
Security is a crucial factor in DMS software. User profiles with passwords, real-time display status, encrypted communications between server and clients and more ensures your display network is being run properly at all times. Daktronics readily provides maintenance updates, which allows implementation of precautionary measures and maximizes functionality.
