Unprecedented Workflow Flexibility: Floating Licenses for Media Composer

By in Video Editing

In today’s editing environment, production workflows are changing rapidly. If you want to operate efficiently, you need to easily scale up your production capability to take on big, complex, and time-consuming projects. And at the same time, you don’t want to waste money on workstations that will go unused on smaller, less intensive projects. These challenges can make any production manager feel stuck between a rock and a hard place.

That’s why we offer floating licenses for Media Composer. You can purchase packs of shared licenses that you can then deploy across your entire facility—using just a single system ID. It’s ideal for large-scale media enterprises, post-production houses, and educational institutions.

The benefits of floating licenses are tremendous. First, they enable a large team of editors to share from a pack of shared licenses. No need to purchase individual licenses for everyone on your team. Licenses are only consumed when you need them, and they return to the server when not in use. You also get incredible flexibility for projects that need to be completed on the road or at home for an extended period of time.

Next, you’ll save countless hours of activation and installation. With floating licenses, you can use Avid’s Floating License Server software and your existing hardware to establish a single, centralized licensing server. Once it’s installed, you can access the floating license server from any Windows or Mac-based client—from anywhere. Administration and management have never been easier.

Finally, the floating licenses will give you peace of mind. All of the floating licenses are returned to the server when Media Composer closes or times out (if checked out past the expiration date). This protects you from theft—and keeps the honest folks honest.

Whether you already own Media Composer or are ready to step up to the industry’s most powerful NLE, now is the perfect time to maximize workflow flexibility at your facility.
