*Multiple licenses may be purchased to upgrade more than one level (e.g., LDX Flex to LDX WorldCam), on a perpetual or 7-day term basis.
The B.O.W.L. (bunch of weekly licenses) licensing option allows users to preorder any number of 7-day licenses and activate them as needed.
Perpetual license: Perpetual upgrade to the next camera in the range
7-day license: Temporary 7-day (weekly) upgrade to the next camera in the range
B.O.W.L: Bunch of weekly licenses.
Multiple licenses may be purchased to upgrade cameras by more than one level (e.g., LDX Flex to LDX WorldCam). Multiple 7-day licenses may be purchased for extended temporary upgrades. No credit is given for the purchase of 7-day licenses towards the purchase of a perpetual license.
How does the upgrade licensing (GV-eLicense) structure work?
A GV-eLicense will temporarily or perpetually upgrade an LDX camera (except LDX WorldCam) to a more advanced model. Each step up the LDX series requires a separate license. If a user moves up one model, they need one license; moving up two models requires two licenses, etc. To increase the duration of a 7-day upgrade, an additional 7-day license must be acquired. To simplify licensing needs, the B.O.W.L. (simply, a bunch of weekly licenses) licensing system provides a way to preorder any number of 7-day licenses and activate them whenever needed without having to place individual orders.
Once the user decides their license requirements, they supply Grass Valley with the serial number of the camera(s) to which the GV-eLicense(s) should be applied. For 7-day licenses, the user also supplies the start date for the license to begin.
Once the order is placed, the Grass Valley order desk will send an e-mail to the user with a link to a unique and secured website, which will provide an activation code. The code enables a file download. After inserting a USB memory device into the camera, the installation process is completed using menus.
