Software Licensing Overview

Software Licensing Overview
Each computer, whether used for designing experiments or running studies, will need the full version of the software installed. This can be done by one person one license at a time, or by a whole company purchasing unlimited use for everyone. We don't require any kind of subscription, maintenance, or support fees. Also, when you purchase licenses for MediaLab or DirectRT (e.g., v2006-v2012), you can use the version you purchase for as long as you like.  New versions come out every two years in the fall and you will always have the option to upgrade at a much discounted rate.

Basic License - Business Pricing

If you have your own lab and are looking to use MediaLab and/or DirectRT on a fixed number of machines, then a basic license may be more approriate than a site license (below). In cases where a smaller number of computers are involved, you can purchase a "basic license" for your lab and then pay a smaller fee for each additional computer on which you want to load the software. For example, say you have 9 computers (2 office, 2 control room, and 5 lab machines).  In such a case you could purchase a basic license and 8 additional licenses. You may add additional licenses at any time in the future and may move the licenses to other machines if the situation requires it. Licenses for home computers, laptops, or employees in your lab are also available at the lower "additional license" rate.

MediaLab v2016 New Upgrade*
Basic License $675 $375
Each Additional Computer $250 $200

DirectRT v2016 New Upgrade*
Basic License $675 $375
Each Additional Computer $250 $200

*Applies to users of all previous versions.


Small Business Site License - Business Pricing
A small business site-license allows you to access up to 25 licenses wherever you need them in your department. A small business site-license offers all of the benefits of a full organizational site-license (below) but is simply limited to 25 machines. One individual from your business should be identified as the licensee and primary support contact. Holders of a basic license with 10 or more machines will qualify for the upgrade rate.  Multiple basic license holders within a single business can merge their accounts for this purpose.

Package New Upgrade*
MediaLab v2016 $3500 $2500
DirectRT v2016 $3500 $2500
MediaLab and DirectRT $6000 $4000

*Applies to users of all previous versions.


Organizational Site License - Business Pricing

Organizational site licenses offer unlimited use of the software for everyone in your business. It's easier for our customers at large companies because we can offer IP-based authorization. Your company's IP patterns (e.g., 123.123.123.*) can be hard coded directly into the software--consequently, no special codes are required and anyone on your local network can just download and use the software on any machine. Multiple IP patterns and manual authorization codes can be accomodated. One individual from your group should be identified as the licensee and primary support contact. Holders of any site license or basic license with 20 or more machines will qualify for the upgrade rate.  Multiple basic license holders within a single business can merge their accounts for this purpose.

*Applies to users of all previous versions.


Multi-Site License - Business Pricing
A multi-site license offers unlimited use of the software for a business across multiple locations across the country or around the world. In situations where three or more cities would be involved, a multi-site unlimited use solution will be the most affordable. Details of the license are the same as for Organizational site liceses (see above). Multi-site licenses also qualify for IP-based software authorization. This means that everyone in your business who is at a pre-authorized location will be able to just download and use the software any time. Companies holding two or more organizational site licenses for earlier versions will qualify for the upgrade rate.

Package New Upgrade*
MediaLab v2016 $12000 $9000
DirectRT v2016

DirectIN PCB v2016 Keyboards - Business Pricing


   $395 each

Read more about precision keyboards

Notes:

  • Note that we are not keyboard resellers. We charge only for the modification of keyboards such that they can reliably get keystroke data to your computer in under 1 millisecond. Consequently, 100% of the cost of the DirectIN PCB v2016 Keyboard is for the installation of Empirisoft's proprietary DirectIN Printed Circuit Board (PCB) . The origional keyboards we will modify are provided to you at no additional charge.
  • Keyboards should operate properly on all computers when connected via USB1 or USB2 on Microsoft Windows (all versions) or Mac Operating System (v10.4 or later).
  • Keyboards should work properly with virtually all software as they will appear to the computer as regular keyboards. 
  • Please allow up to 2-3 weeks for delivery, especially for large orders.
  • Keyboards typically ship via UPS ground. An estimated shipping cost will be added to the invoice.
  • Academic and non-profit institutions are typically tax-exempt
  • Payment for hardware needs to be received before we can assemble and ship the units.
  • DirectIN PCB v2016 Keyboards come with a full one year parts and service warranty.

For our customers outside the USA:

As much as it sounds like fun, we do not keep up on international tax laws and customs policies for individual countries outside the USA. If you are ordering our hardware from another country, we strongly advise you to ask your local postal service and/or UPS about additional taxes (e.g., VAT), customs fees, and delivery delays to which you may be subject. It's rare but we have heard of VAT taxes (e.g., 16% in Spain) and customs delays (e.g., up to 2 weeks in Israel)  that had not been expected by the customer.

How to Order

You can get started today. Email us at sales@empirisoft.com and tell us what you need. We will confirm the details with you to make sure you are ordering exactly what you want and that you are clear on the pricing. Then, on your request, we will send you an invoice via email. You will be able to choose your payment method. The email will contain a link giving you an option to pay it online via secure server. If using a purchase order, let us know and we'll take care of it. When you order software, we will give you download instructions so you can start using the software the same day--we trust that you will subsequently pay the invoice. If your order will contain hardware (button boxes, keyboards, and such), the estimated shipping costs and delivery time will be provided when we confirm the pricing. The only exception to our "immediate use" policy is for hardware shipping outside of the USA (requires advance payment prior to shipping).
