Steps

Dashboard provides visual feedback regarding the schedule and connectivity to your display.  This feature shows a reflection of what is playing in your playlist.  If you want to see what is running on the actual display(s) you may run a report for previously played content or view the physical display(s).  Please note, this is not a live feed. Please note that if your display is NOT INSTALLED, you will see a communication error. You can still create content and playlists even though your display is not installed. 

  • Thumbnails:  By clicking on the thumbnail icon, the Venus dashboard will provide you with a thumbnail of recently played content.  Please note that the dashboard does have a 10 second refresh rate.  If any Content Studio or Web Presentation files are scheduled to your display, it will only show the first layout/slide of that presentation and may show longer than ten seconds depending on the duration of the presentation.
  • Device Communication:  By clicking the heartbeat icon, the dashboard will switch to device communication.  This provides you with visual feedback regarding your display connectivity.
  • Webcams:  By clicking on the camera icon it will switch from device communication to webcam.  This provides you with a view of your display.  Please note that you must have webcam(s) enabled for this feature to be present.
