    How to get MC | Ultimate

    Hello,

    I have about 20 running MediaComposer, mostly perpetual licenses, paid per year. The licenses are from the time when the updates were cheap (~270Eur/yr).

    My question is now, what happens if I have to renew them? Do the licenses automatically switch to Ultimate or do I have to purchase a Crossgrade/Upgrade? If I want to renew now, I can not see any option or information for this, so I am a bit uncertain.

    Thank you in advance,

    Doyle

    The 270eur/yr you are referring to is the annual support renewal for perpetual licenses (licenses you bought and own). For those, nothing changes. They will continue to support shared environments, and Symphony, ScriptSync snd PhraseFind will remain paid add-on options.

    MC|Ultimate is the name for the top-tier subscription license (rented licenses), that can be rented per month or year. MC Ultimate subscriptions include Symphony, ScriptSync and PhraseFind. Perpetual licenses do not.

     

    So if you own perpetual licenses that you have kept under annual support, nothinh changes. You can continue keeping them under annual support for the same price (~270eur/yr). Unless you would prefer to crossgrade from a perpetual license to a subscription.
