This chapter gives a short overview of different Pandoras Box licenses.

The chapter "Product Overview" explains in detail which hardware and software products are offered by Christie Pandoras Box. Since version 8 the license structure is fundamentally simplified. The user interface is generally the same.

- With the free Demo version, which is valid for 90 days, you have access to the same feature-set as the Offline License. Note that the Preview and audio output contain a water mark. Download here...

- The Offline License is used for show pre-programming and video editing. Many operators use the Offline License to test programming setups or keep practicing. The major difference to the full license is, that it cannot connect via network to any system, hence the name "Offline". Other differences are listed in the product structure table.

- The Pandoras Box Software license includes the full feature set. It supports real-time 3D rendering, 8K video playback and 10bit color depth whilst offering unlimited Sequences, Video Layers and Effects. All three licenses can start the Master software that includes a Preview window but only this one allows you to start the Client mode too which can be toggled to a fullscreen rendering output. Now you can connect several PB systems to one large setup and build a scalable playback system with as many fullscreen outputs as you like. For each license you get another Output Layer that you can link to a physical output.

 

The Offline and Pandoras Box Software license come with a dongle. If you like to install or run Pandoras Box please insert the dongle first. The Pandoras Box Software license can be added multiple times to a dongle to release more outputs.

All licenses run on any Pandoras Box hardware system but also on custom hardware. Windows 8.1 / 10 Professional 64bit systems are mandatory. Graphics cards from NVIDIA are recommended.
