Pangolin offers three license types to choose from:
Hardware License - When you choose this option, BEYOND software is licensed to your Pangolin
hardware device. BEYOND must see the hardware one time, in order to start working on the PC you are
Once BEYOND is running on your computer, and the PC sees the hardware, you can then disconnect
the hardware and operate BEYOND without hardware connected and edit with the software. After 14-
days, BEYOND will ask you to reconnect your licensed hardware.
If you need laser output from BEYOND, the licensed hardware must be connected in the setup. You can
also connect other Pangolin hardware in the setup as well, to use as additional output devices. In this
setup, a license can never be moved from one hardware device to another.
Hardware licenses are great for Permanent installs, touring, or client’s who prefer a “dongle style” setup
as well as independence from the internet (offline).
What if my hardware doesn’t work?
- If your Pangolin hardware fails due to a manufacturers defect, you can send the non-working
hardware to a Pangolin service center, and we can work with you to replace the hardware,
and move your license to a new hardware device.
What if my hardware is lost or stolen?
- It is your responsibility to ensure you take care of your Pangolin hardware devices. If your
hardware is lost or stolen, and a BEYOND license is tied to this, that is your responsibility to
replace. In such cases, you can always contact us, and we will do what we can to help you
get operational again.
Internet License - When you choose this option, BEYOND software is licensed to your user account.
When you start the software, you will create your account, and activate your internet license. Then you
can use BEYOND software on the PC of your choice. With an internet license, you can also “move” the
license from one PC to the next. In order to move a license, you simply need to connect the new
computer you wish to use to the internet, and activate it with BEYOND. The previously used PC will then
be deactivated automatically. This type of license is great for client’s who prefer flexibility in their license
structure, and who may desire to move the license from one PC to another.
* NOTE, internet licenses require a periodic internet connection. Periodically, the software will need to
“phone home” to verify authenticity.
PCID License - When you choose this option, BEYOND software is licensed to PC specifically. This is
generally used for development and testing purposes. In rare cases, we approve the purchase of a PCID
license to a client, if the show situation demands it. This is approved on a case by case basis, and is at
the sole discretion of Pangolin. With a PCID license, the software is tied to your PC permanently. Then
any Pangolin hardware you connect in your setup, will work with BEYOND.
What if my PC doesn’t work anymore?
- If your PC fails, your license dies with it.
What if my PC is lost or stolen?
- It is your responsibility to ensure you take care of your hardware devices. If your hardware is
lost or stolen, and a BEYOND license is tied to this, that is your responsibility to replace. In
such cases, you can always contact us, and we will do what we can to help you get
