Pixera Licenses

 1 Minute



All Pixera hardware is shipped with a PIXERA server license - beside that, each license is available as software only as well.

There are four different licenses as software only versions available - for all of them except the creator licence, a USB dongle as license key is necessary.




Pixera as software is always the same. Depending on the license used, other functionalities such as Live Preview Editing are enabled in the user interface.

The render engine behaves in the same way; depending on the license used, watermarks may or may not be visible on the outputs.

The USB dongle is the same for all licenses - it only depends on the license release code which license is stored.
A license can be upgraded very easily by a new unlock code.


Changing License on Manager

By selecting the specific service in the live section of the mapping tab, you can find "Manage License" on the right hand side in the Inspector. Simply copy the new license code in the section "license code" to unlock new functionalities or outputs.



Changing License on Client

Besides the possibility to enter the license key in Pixera, this can also be done in Presence.

Click on "Manage License" and enter the license key in the respective field.
