License Information

Number of Computers

Licensing for Raven is based on the number of computers on which the software will be concurrently used. You can install the software on any number of computers, but you must purchase licenses for each computer on which the software will be used at any one time. For example, if you use Raven Pro at home and at work, and if you are never using Raven at home and at work at the same time, then you only need one license for the two computers. If you use Raven on a Windows PC and a Macintosh computer but never at the same time, then you need only one license. If you use Raven on two computers at the same time, then you need to purchase two licenses.

 

Raven Pro - Demonstration version

This option is available to all potential users to allow them to try the software. The software will launch and run for 10 minutes, not allowing you to save any data. It will then exit and allow you to restart the software.

 

Raven Pro - Trial license

This license option is available to all potential users to allow them to try the software. The license is valid for 30 days, after which the software will not run. If, during the trial, you purchase a license, you'll be able to register the new license before or after the trial license expires.

 

Raven Pro - Commercial license

This license option is intended for corporations conducting research using Raven Pro or anyone making money by using Raven Pro, including charging money for images or access to images that were created using Raven Pro. The basic single-user commercial license fee for Raven is $800. This license is not intended for anyone who wants to use Raven Pro in a public display setting or for anyone who is charging an admission price for access to Raven Pro. Anyone wishing to use Raven Pro in a public setting such as in a museum or zoo exhibit should contact us for licensing terms for Raven Pro or Raven Exhibit.

Raven Pro - Instructional License

This license option is available to instructors at academic institutions. The basic instructional license fee of $400 provides for installation and concurrent use on up to four (4) instructional machines. An instructional machine is one owned by the licensing institution on which Raven Pro will be used exclusively for coursework. This may include lab, classroom, or field work. Personal machines and machines on which Raven Pro is not used exclusively for coursework are specifically excluded. Additional instructional licenses can be purchased for $100 per machine. Note that $400 is the minimum price for this type of license -- you cannot just pay $200 to install on two machines.

Instructors may evaluate Raven Pro on a single computer as a teaching tool for free for six (6) months. This allows them to experience how Raven can be used in the classroom.

You can renew your subscription free of charge for as long as you are a student or postdoc by emailing us to confirm that you are still a student or postdoc.
