    Sorenson Squeeze Update | Avid 1.7.19

    Due to the discontinuation of Sorenson Squeeze by Sorenson, Avid can no longer offer Sorenson Squeeze either for purchase or as part of a Media Composer | Subscription or Production Pack bundle.

    Customers who have purchased Sorenson Squeeze can continue to use it while the license is valid.

    Customers who have purchased the Production Pack can continue to use Sorenson Squeeze while the license is still valid. They will not receive any software updates to Squeeze, however, and cannot receive support from Avid on issues related to Squeeze.

    Customers who have a Media Composer subscription that includes Sorenson Squeeze can continue to use it until January 31st, or the next time they renew their subscription in 2019, whichever comes first, at which time it will be disabled (will cease to run) and will be removed from their Avid Master Accounts.

    For further questions, please refer to this FAQ

    FAQ:

    What’s happening to Sorenson Squeeze?

    Due to the discontinuation of Sorenson Squeeze by Sorenson, Avid can no longer offer Sorenson Squeeze either for purchase or as part of a Media Composer | Subscription or Production Pack bundle.

    Customers who have purchased Sorenson Squeeze can continue to use it while the license is valid.

    Customers who have purchased the Production Pack can continue to use Sorenson Squeeze while the license is still valid. They will not receive any software updates to Squeeze, however, and no support from Avid will be available on issues relating to Sorenson Squeeze.

    Customers who have a Media Composer subscription that includes Sorenson Squeeze can continue to use it until January 31, 2019, or the next time they renew their subscription in 2019, whichever comes first, at which time it will be disabled (will cease to run) and will be removed from their Avid Master Accounts.

    Why is this happening?

    Earlier this year, Sorenson Media announced that Squeeze was no longer part of their portfolio and ceased all licensing, development and support of that product line. Avid is therefore no longer able to sell or support the product.

    Can I still get help with issues?

    Customers who require support for Squeeze should refer to the Sorenson Media website. Avid cannot provide any support for issues related to Squeeze.

    When will I stop being able to use Squeeze as part of my Media Composer subscription?

    Sorenson Squeeze installers will be removed from accounts on January 31st. Starting January 1st, the next time a subscription license is reactivated – either as part of an annual renewal, a monthly payment, or a monthly “call home,” – Squeeze will stop running as part of a subscription license.

    What about an alternative software solution?

    Avid will not be replacing Squeeze with an alternative software option.

    Questions, let me know

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze Update | Avid 1.7.19

    Just wondering - I downloaded 11.1.0 a while back - did not need a serial number since it used the older version.

    This is till usable?  Correct.   Also since I still have the installer - should I need to reinstall will that work?

     

    Thanks

    While the current version (Media Composer 2018.12) does, I don't want to speculate on whether Avid will continue to provide an internal link in future versions. But, you can always use Sorenson Squeeze as a stand-alone, separately licensed  product...apart from Media Composer.
