Licensing

Adaptive Vision Studio comes in one of two editions.

Professional

Full-functionality edition intended for commercial use.

Lite

Limited-functionality freeware available for trial and non-commercial use. Recommended especially for students who want to learn how to develop complex algorithms with images loaded from files.

Runtime

‘Professional’ and ‘Library SDK’ licenses are for development. Besides that, each final system requires a runtime license.

There are 3 options how to turn a program created in Adaptive Vision Studio into a standalone application:

  • Adaptive Vision Studio Runtime - this is a lightweight application (Adaptive Vision Executor) that can execute programs created in Adaptive Vision Studio.
  • .NET Macrofilter Interface - this mechanism allows you to export macrofilters from Adaptive Vision Studio into a DLL library, embed it in your .NET applications and use macrofilters as methods in your code.
  • Adaptive Vision Library - as functions of AVL.DLL correspond closely to filters, you can use Adaptive Vision Studio as a prototyping environment. Adaptive Vision Studio can then generate the C++ code for the program. (Code Generator and Library Addon - for users of both the Studio and the Library).

Licensing Model

License Types

There are two types of commercial licenses:

  • Development – assigned to a single engineer. You will need one development license for each person working with Adaptive Vision Studio or Library. It includes one year of technical support, which can be extended with an annual fee of 40% of the original price. Valid technical support also gives you the right to upgrade the software to newer version and to buying runtime licenses.
  • Runtime – assigned to a single vision system. You will need one runtime license for each system you deploy. You can use one license for one multi-camera system, but multiple licenses are required to control multiple independent systems, even if run on a single physical computer. There are two flavors: ‘Studio Runtime’ and ‘Library Runtime’.

License Carriers

There are two types of license carriers:

  • Computer-ID – these licenses are stored in a computer file and work only with one particular computer.
  • USB Dongle – these licenses are stored on a device that can be used with many different computers (but still by only one person in case of development licenses).

We recommend using the USB Dongle solution for development licenses and the Computer-Id solution for runtime licenses.
