Avid and Dongles

February 26, 2010 Leave a comment

Avid Technolgoy is migrating away from dongles.  They still do allow them, it is now becoming an additional charge.  Over the transition, Avid has been extremely generous providing us Make Good kits to bridge the MC software from 3.x to 4.x when we request physical dongles.  Unfortunately, moving forward if a client wants software with dongle there will be a charge to upgrade to 4.x.

If you request 7010-30101-02 (MC v3.x with dongle) on your Nitris DX orders the client will receive only v3.5.4.  If the client has Assurance they can upgrade for free to 4.x however they will still need to upgrade the 3rd party software via 0010-30303-01 (cost is $195).  If the client doesn’t have Assurance, they will also need to purchase 7510-30082-01 (cost is $495) to upgrade the MC Soft and 3rd party software.

The same applies to the MC Soft stand alone as well (7500-30108-01).  If the client has Assurance they can upgrade for free to 4.x however they will still need to upgrade the 3rd party software via 0010-30303-01 (cost is $195).  If the client doesn’t have Assurance, they will also need to purchase 7510-30082-01 (cost is $495) to upgrade the MC Soft and 3rd party software.  This to get the software if dongles are needed

Overall, having dongles go away is not bad.  Since the dongle is the IP, losing a cheap piece of plastic can set you back $2000+.  Having log in, you can now license different systems where the software is loaded via the web, no longer making it critical to carry around your dongle between the cutting room and home.
