We Expanded Software Licenses

At LightAct, our unwavering commitment lies in delivering top-tier audiovisual and multimedia tools to cater to a diverse user base. 

With this mission in mind, we upgraded LightAct software licenses so that they include a range of features that were previously limited to our servers only. This way, our solutions became much more accessible for smaller projects and installations that value cost efficiency.

LightAct Software Licenses now include LightNet, tracking and other advanced functionalities.

With this overarching goal in mind, we organised our software licensing into 4 tiers:

Creator

Creator is the Free license you’ve grown accustomed to. It hasn’t changed a bit. It still has all the features and outputs unlocked and you can save your work. The only drawback is that there is a watermark on all the outputs.

Basic

Basic license tier is what we have been offering so far as our software-only option. It’s a license tier designed for simpler installations and projects where a standalone server is enough.

Pro

Pro license tier is where the biggest change is. It’s a flexible and scalable license tier that comes, by default, with LightNet – our multi-server toolset.

On top of that, various add-ons unlock additional functionalities that were so far limited to our servers. These include all object and camera tracking technologies, Multi-User fuctionality, LightAct Manager and many others.

Unlimited

Unlimited license tier is our highest offering which is limited to our servers only. This part hasn’t changed.

We believe this reorganisation of our software licenses, especially the addition of Pro license tier, will empower users further by giving them more options for a wide range of projects.

Explore all the details about the software licenses below and let us know what you think.

Creator Free

With the introduction of projection study and other similar functionalities we realized we needed to change our licensing a (tiny) bit.

So today, we are introducing Creator Free. It is a new default license which replaces Creator Trial and is used when there are no other LightAct licenses available.

Features of Creator Free

This means, you can use this license to work on your project without having to pay anything up until you need to remove the watermarks.

And even then, you have several exciting options: Weekly, Yearly or Perpetual licenses depending on whether you are doing a short-term live event or a fixed installations.
