What is your licensing based on?
OZEKI Camera SDKs licensing is based on the number of the cameras you wish to handle. For example if you wish to build an IP Camera viewer that can handle two IP Cameras, you need the "OZEKI Camera SDK for .NET - 2 IP cameras" license. If you build your IP Camera Manager with this license, your viewer can be used in many places at the same time to make IP Camera view.
What is the licensing definition of IP Cameras?
By a camera we mean the number of cameras you can connect to your system.
For example, if you install an IP camera into the Room 101 and an other one into the Room 102, and you want to view the image of them on your computer, this would count as two IP cameras. For this you would need the "OZEKI Camera SDK for .NET - 2 IP Cameras" license that allows you to build for example an IP camera viewer application that is able to handle 2 IP cameras at the same time. You can distribute this application to as many people as you want. For example if you are out of the office, you can view the camera image on your remote computer and you can ask your secretary to check the cameras on her own PC at the same time Both of you can connect and check and view at the same time, and you only had to buy one "OZEKI Camera SDK - 2 IP Cameras" license to build your IP camera viewer (or any other IP camera applicationa ccording to your needs).
If you want to make system, that can handle 100 IP cameras at the same time, you need the "OZEKI Camera SDK for .NET - 128 IP Cameras" license.
How do more IP Cameras in the license relate to IP Camera accounts?
Licensing is based on IP Cameras.
When you decide on purchasing an OZEKI Camera SDK license, you can decide how many IP cameras you wish to use, and we will find the most suitable license for your goals.
After purchasing a license, do I have to pay any royalties or license fees to Ozeki when I sell the copies of my product?
No, you don't have to pay any royalty or any other fee to us. A purchased license can be used to build a single product, which (along with its subsequent versions) can be freely distributed in as many copies as you wish.
Can I distribute my customized IP Camera product free of charge?
Yes, you can. After purchasing one OZEKI Camera SDK license you are free to distribute as many copies of this single product based on our SDK as you wish with no additional payment.
Can I get a proforma invoice prior to the order?
Yes, you can.
If you need a proforma invoice before you place an order, please let us know, and we can send you one. You can request a proforma invoice by sending us your billing information and your mailing address. You will receive the final invoice after you have purchased the product.
Will I get an invoice?
Yes, of course.
When you purchase the product please send us the billing information, and the mailing address in e-mail and we will send you the invoice by postal mail. If you have any special requirements, regarding what kind of extra information should be written on the invoice, please let us know.
Can I upgrade my purchased license to a higher level? If yes, how?
Yes, you can. In the future you can upgrade the purchased software license to higher capacity if you pay the price difference between the price of your license and the price of the higher capacity license plus some administration fee.
Is there a "maintenance" or "support" fee per year for the developer licenses?
The price of the product includes three months of free technical standard support and one year of free version updates. Support for additional periods can be purchased. We can provide technical support by e-mail, telephone or Skype.
Do you sell the source code of OZEKI Camera SDK?
Yes, we do. The full source code is available in the "OZEKI Camera SDK for .NET - 10000 camera" license package.
If I buy the source code, can I change the codes and should I release those modified codes to Ozeki?
After buying the source code, you can change the codes freely and you do not have to release those codes to Ozeki.
Why is there a limitation on the number of IP Camera views? What if I would like to handle unlimited number of views?
The limitations mentioned in our price list are licensing limitations, not
technology limitations. They are there, because we provide technical support
and assistance to our customers. It takes more resources from
us to support a system with several thousand IP cameras, than to
support a system that makes only a few IP cameras at a time and this difference is
reflected in the prices of the standard licenses.
Our SDK can be used to build systems that support more IP cameras. If you wish to build a high capacity, scalable system, please consult with us, and ask for a custom license.
How many copies of my product can I distribute with only one license key?
You can distribute as many copies as you want but only for one application or one service.
If I would like to create an application which will be used by a large number of customers, how many license keys do I need to buy?
A single license key is enough for a single product or service. The number of users does not affect the licensing of OZEKI Camera SDK. With an "OZEKI Camera SDK for .Net - Single IP Camera" license, all of your users will be able to handle one IP Camera at a time.
Do I need separate licenses for the build activity (e.g. for the builder machines or the installer builders)?
You can use a license code on one developer workstation only. If you have two software developers (two people) working on different developer workstations, you need to purchase two OZEKI Camera SDK licenses. In other words one Ozeki IP Camera SDK license should be purchased for every computer, that is used for development.
So if I purchase one SDK license can I use it in multiple client system or I need to purchase a license for each client system?
With one license you can use multiple client systems.
Do I need a license per development servers?
If you have a developer workstation and an independent build server, you will need two OZEKI Camera SDK licenses, one for the developer workstation and one for the build server. One OZEKI Camera SDK license code can be activated on one physical computer only.
Do I need a license per developer working on my project?
One license is required per application. It does not matter how many developers work on that application.
Do we have to buy a separate license for each version (e.g. 10.1.0.0, 10.1.0.1, 10.1.0.2, ...) of our product?
In case you develop the same application, you do not need a new OZEKI Camera SDK license upon each version (10.1.0.0, 10.1.0.1, 10.1.0.2, ...). You would only need a new license if you start to develop a totally new application.
If I want to develop Windows Service with the following requirements: display camera image, setup brightness, store video recordings, manage one camera - which license should I buy?
For this purpose you should select OZEKI Camera SDK for .Net - Single camera license. This license provides all the enlisted requirements.
I need your SDK only for a private development, not for commercial use. Do you have offers for me?
Yes, we do. If you would not like to build a whole IP camera center, for instance, only create something for personal purposes, you can choose from our standard licenses.
My trial has expired, how can I use your SDK for more time?
The trial version of OZEKI Camera SDK is freely available on our website. It can be used to test all of the features, however it has some limitations. One of the limitations is that it can be used the software in trial mode for a period of 20 days. If this trial period has expired, you need to purchase a licensed SDK in order to use it for unlimited time. When you purchase the OZEKI Camera SDK license, you will receive a registration code which helps you to activate the SDK and remove the limitations.
I am looking for a freeware license.
Our solution is a commercial Software Development Kit to quickly make IP camera applications for your company or distribute it to your customers under your brand. The OZEKI Camera SDK license cost is a one-time fee. You can use the purchased license for as long as you wish (forever) without paying any additional fee.
What do you mean by "single product". Does it mean that we can use it only once to design a single or first product.
We mean by 'Single product' that one OZEKI Camera SDK standard license can
be used for building one product (for example, an IP Camera viewer). A service that you
wish to launch based on the SDK can also be considered as a product. This 'single
product' or single service (along with its subsequent versions) can be freely
distributed in as many copies as you wish without paying any royalties or license
fees to Ozeki. The service can be operated on arbitrary places.
The professional licenses of OZEKI Camera SDK allow to build 3 products/services while the enterprise licenses have no limitation for the number of products or services.
