The Stop Motion Pro Eclipse Network editions are designed for easy rollout across your school network. The license allows an unlimited number of PCs, laptops and Windows laptops to be used. You can install the software on any device as long as it connects to your network at least once every 30 days.
The key benefits of a network license are as follows:
- Eclipse is designed to minimize network traffic as the students create their films - You configure the roll-out for your network topology - Storage 'server' can be a NAS, Lynix, or other technologies - Compatible with virtualized servers - Disconnect laptops or Windows tablets from the network for up to 30 days
The network license works in the following way:
- Once unlocked, the local network server holds its license, without requiring an internet connection. - The workstations can be removed from the local network for up to 30 days and still use Eclipse. - To refresh workstation licenses, connect the computer to the local network and run Eclipse. An internet connection is not required.
The software is rolled out across your school as follows:
- Your staff install Stop Motion Pro Eclipse on a central server. Individual licenses are not required for on-site computers or laptops and unlimited users are allowed. - A MSI installer package, customized for your school IT policies, is created using the Eclipse Network wizard application. - The MSI can be deployed using your existing processes and software. It can also be used in a virtulized environment. - Students and teachers can take their laptops home and use Eclipse for up to 30 days before reconnecting to the server.
In addition to the new way which this stop motion program isrolled and the way that it opterates on your network;Stop Motion Pro Eclipse also benefits from a simplified the interface, making it much more user friendly.
