Just Wondering if when you use a QX1 Does it activate the free version on clarity so you do not recive the Random DBO's?

Thanks Guys
Cheers,

Thank you. If you get a vx10/20 do you still need to buy the liecence?

Hi Brodie,

Yes you do.
The QX1/2 and VX10/20 wings will work in demo mode (no dongle) but require a dongle before they will work without random blackouts.

So just to be totally clear.

The way Clarity works is that you can buy any combination of hardware and software.

So you ALWAYS need a CT/? software license, no matter what, if any, hardware that you buy.

We do this for two reasons.

1) Some people do not want any hardware, as they use a touchscreen computer and Art-Net, so all they want to buy is a software license.

2) Some users will want to control surface provided by a VX wing, but have no need for the full number of DMX slots that the 4 DMX connectors can provide. So they can by a VX20 with just 500 channels at a much lower price than a VX20 with 2,000 channels.

3) You can run multiple licenses. Clarity is unique in the ability to run multiple software licenses on one machine. So a hire company may purchase 2 x CT/1 licenses (500 channels each) and 1 x VX20 + 1 x VX10 wing. Then they can hire this out as 2 x separate 500 channel systems, or by plugging the two HASP keys into one computer they can send it out as a single 1,000 channel with either the VX20 or the VX10 or both.

4) The software license is for channels, not DMX universes. So if you use a CT/1 (500 channel) license with a VX20, you are not limited to using only one of the DMX connectors on the rear panel. You can patch 100 channels to DMX-A, then 64 channels to DMX-B, 50 channels to DMX-C, 200 channels to DMX-D and still have the option of sending the remaining channels via Art-Net.

(So I guess that is 4 not 2 reasons)
