Red Giant Introduces New Volume Licensing Program

Designed for organizations with multiple artists, workstations and facilities, new program features easy-to-manage floating license model for world-class motion graphics and visual effects plug-ins.

Portland, OR -- Red Giant  announced its new Volume Licensing Program (VLP) for its award-winning lineup of plug-in suites, designed to meet the demands of larger organizations. A flexible and affordable solution for customers who require 10 or more floating licenses, the Volume Licensing Program removes the tedium of software deployment and management.

The Volume Licensing Program includes the option to buy an annual subscription to Trapcode Suite, Magic Bullet Suite, Shooter Suite, Effects Suite and Keying Suite. Customers can also buy an annual subscription to the Red Giant Complete Suite, which contains all of the suites at a discounted price.

How the Program Works
Created to simplify the process of licensing, installing and updating multiple suites at once, Red Giant’s new Volume Licensing Program uses a floating license server model called Reprise License Manager (RLM) for easy management. With RLM, Red Giant volume customers requiring 10 or more seats can now “check out” licenses for use on individual client machines, then “check in” licenses after they are finished being used. This makes tracking licenses simple, while ensuring that only the exact number of licenses that were purchased are being used at any given time.

IT administrators can also gather data on each individual license, including how many are being used and when. This hands the control back to the company and increases work efficiency – administrators will always know if they have the right number of suites for their entire organization, which means they can expand or contract as needed. Best of all, keeping software up-to-date requires no effort, as VLP licenses can be updated automatically.

Who the Program Will Benefit
In the past, Red Giant has relied on an in-house, serial number-based licensing scheme, a simple solution for non-enterprise customers who only need to manage a few licenses. However, when used within larger environments, users requested a comprehensive way to maintain multiple licenses.

As a result, Red Giant created the Volume Licensing Program, specifically designed for larger facilities using 10 or more workstations. The Program is ideal for heavier day-to-day Red Giant software users, including post-production houses, large media and entertainment brands, advertising agencies, broadcast networks and academic institutions.
