Renewing Show Control Software License
Your purchase of Show Control includes a license installed on each user station. This license includes a one (1) year subscription to receive software updates. If you wish to continue receiving software updates beyond that first year, you will need to update your Show Control license and software accordingly. Currently, update licenses are available at no charge, but in the future, Daktronics reserves the right to charge for these licenses.
