Types of Licenses
This article provides a detailed comparison of our two main licensing options.
Overview of Licensing Terms
There are two primary types of licenses:
Single Developer or Team License
This license grants the Licensee with the right to use the Product (for example, MXF Reader) by either one developer (Single Developer License) or 1-4 developers (Team License). There is no limitation on the number of executable applications, and no limitation on the number of deployed or redistributed copies. So, for the Single Developer license, one developer at a time can work with the SDK, but you can redistribute copies of the application(s) you develop with the SDK unlimited and royalty-free. In case you have a Team license, up to 4 developers can work with the SDK at the same time.
It is important to understand that this license - either in full or partially (such as redistribution right only) - cannot be transferred to a third party. If you are making custom development for a third party, this third party should hold a valid license if it wishes to redistribute the product.
Single Application License
This license grants the Licensee with the right to use the Product to develop one executable application. The number of developers, deployments or redistributed copies is not limited. To understand better what can be considered as one executable application, please read a more detailed faq post here.
For better understanding here's a comparison table.
|Single Developer License||Team License||Single Application License|
|Number of developers and/or development computers||1||4||Unlimited|
|Number of test computers||Unlimited||Unlimited||Unlimited|
|Number of applications||Unlimited||Unlimited||1|
|Deployment or redistribution||Unlimited||Unlimited||Unlimited|
Does the Single Developer License mean that only one person in our company can use the SDK at the same time and that there is no restriction for the applications that are created and redistributed?
Yes, that is correct in case you purchase a Single Developer License. In case you purchase a Team license, up to 4 developers can work with the SDK at the same time. And yes, there is no restriction to the number of applications that you develop with the SDK, and you can redistribute them royalty-free.
