Why is Ventuz introducing a Subscription service?
An increasing number of customers have been requesting greater flexibility when it comes to licensing. We also hope the new low monthly price will reduce the entry barrier for aspiring artists, freelancers, and small businesses.
What are the differences between the Core Subscription and Core Perpetual licenses?
Core Edition subscribers can create projects that use two (2) 4K outputs. This is twice the number of pixels compared to Core Edition perpetual licenses. Subscription licenses are also completely digital. They do not have physical license media and need an internet connection to function.
Why is Subscription only available for the Core Edition?
Ventuz Core Edition is our most used product, so it was logical to first introduce Subscription for this edition. Many Enterprise Edition users are running longer-term fixed installations with more specialized uses. At this time, subscription would not provide any extra value to our Enterprise customers. Thus, only perpetual licensing options are available for Enterprise Edition currently.
I recently purchased a perpetual license; can I switch to Subscription?
Perpetual licenses cannot be switched to subscription, and vice versa. This is due to the completely different licensing authentication we use to for those products.
What happens if I cancel my Subscription?
Your license will expire at the end of the subscription term, and you will no longer be able to start the Ventuz software using that license. You can subscribe again at any time.
Do I have to purchase maintenance or updates for subscription licenses separately?
No. Subscription licenses have access to all software releases, service updates and bug fixes published during the active subscription term.
I want to buy a perpetual license after my subscription expires, will I be credited for the previous fee?
Subscription and perpetual licensing are non-transferrable, and credit cannot be given.
Will perpetual licenses continue to be available in the future?
Absolutely! We want to offer our customers solutions that best fit their needs and budget.
I have purchased maintenance for my perpetual license, what will happen to it after the introduction of Subscription?
Nothing will change. Existing perpetual licenses will not be affected by subscription. All updates and fixes are included until the end of your maintenance period. After your maintenance period has expired, you can choose to either extend your maintenance or switch to a Subscription license to stay up to date with current releases.
I have an Enterprise product; can I switch to subscription?
The Enterprise Edition of Ventuz contains an expanded set of features that are not included as part of Ventuz Core edition – therefore there are no plans to offer subscriptions for Enterprise at this time. For information about our Enterprise products, please contact our sales specialists.
Are there monthly and annual subscriptions and what is the difference?
We offer both monthly and annual subscriptions for Core Runtime and Core Studio. Customers who commit to an annual subscription are helping us plan for the long term and invest in the development of our products. As thanks for this loyalty, we will be offering annual subscriptions at a lower price when compared with a monthly subscription for the same 12-month period.
I want to use my subscription license with a dongle, is that possible?
Dongle-based subscription is not available yet, but we are working on a solution that will allow hardware-based licensing. We will inform our customers as soon as we have a solution in place.
Does the subscription expire after the end of the term?
Your subscription will renew automatically until you cancel your license. You can cancel up until the last day of your current subscription term. Kindly note that for technical reasons the subscription term will always be extended by the same period as the first one: An annual subscription is extended by one year, a monthly subscription by a month. If you want to switch to another plan, you must first cancel the old subscription and order a new one with a different duration.
How can I buy Subscription?
Ventuz Core Subscription can be purchased exclusively from our online store. Payment for the selected term is due in advance via credit card.
Can I purchase Subscription from a reseller or from Ventuz direct only?
Subscription licensing can only be purchased online via our web shop.
Can I pay the fee for my subscription by bank transfer?
We cannot accept bank transfer as payment for subscriptions. Subscription requires a credit card on file to allow us to manage payments properly.
What happens if I do not pay, or the transfer fails?
When the subscription is first purchased, a warning message will appear if the transfer fails for any reason. The purchase process will not be completed until the payment process is successful. If the charge fails at renewal time we will notify you via email. We will attempt to charge the account several time, after a grace period for which you will receive a notification. If those subsequent attempts fail, your subscription will be terminated, and you will need to purchase a new one.
How many seats of Ventuz can I run with one subscription?
Subscription allows you to work with one (1) concurrent seat per license. The licensing works through online leases, so your system must be connected to the internet to start a license.
Can I purchase perpetual licenses and subscriptions at the same time?
For technical reasons, it is currently not possible to mix perpetual and subscription licenses in one shopping cart. You’ll have to purchase them separately.
If I buy multiple subscriptions at once, can I cancel them individually
It is not possible to cancel individual licenses of subscriptions that were purchased in one transaction. If you anticipate that you need to do this when a project ends, we recommend that you purchase each set of licenses separately.
Do I always have to be connected to the Internet to use my subscription license?
The Ventuz software periodically contacts our license server to update the lease. If the connection fails, a warning prompt appears and you have 5 minutes to reconnect or save your project, after which the software will stall. The software cannot be used until the connection is re-established and the lease is renewed.
