ProPresenter 5 licensing is very simple as there are only two levels of pricing. They are as follows:
Single User License: $399 (NON-Concurrent use)Our Single User License allows installation on multiple machines of the same platform, but only runs on one machine at a time without the watermark. Concurrent use, such as during the main service and a separate Youth program, requires a site license. This license is platform specific (Mac or Windows, not both).
Site License: $799 (Concurrent use) - FOR HOUSES OF WORSHIP (HOW) ONLY!Our Site License allows you to run ProPresenter in multiple rooms at a single campus simultaneously (each campus requires its own license). This license works on both Mac and Windows versions. Non-HOW users are required to purchase single user licenses for every machine on which they will be using the software.
Software licenses cannot be transferred (sold or donated) to another organization or individual.
ProPresenter 5 has several levels of upgrade pricing from ProPresenter 4. A license can only be upgraded one time when going to ProPresenter 5.
A Single License of ProPresenter 5 can be converted to a Site License after the fact, but it costs $100 more than going with a Site License from the start as we have to disable the Single License and re-issue a Site License to replace it. In all cases a new Unlock Code will be sent when an upgrade is complete. Upgrade pricing is as follows:
Upgrade to Pro5 Single User License: $199.50Upgrade from ProPresenter 4 to a ProPresenter 5 Single User License
Upgrade to Pro5 Site License: $399.50Upgrade from ProPresenter 4 to a ProPresenter 5 Site License. Site License includes unlimited concurrent use for ONE campus, an extra 50 motion clips, and cross-platform (unlocks both Mac and Windows versions)!
Single to Site License Conversion and Upgrade: $599Go from ProPresenter 4 Single License to a ProPresenter 5 Site license. Site License includes unlimited concurrent use for ONE campus and is cross-platform (unlocks both Mac and Windows versions)!
Convert from Pro5 Single to Pro5 Site License: $500Upgrade from a Single User License of ProPresenter 5 to a Site License of ProPresenter 5. Site License includes unlimited concurrent use for ONE campus and is cross-platform (unlocks both Mac and Windows versions)!
Why the Discount Expiration for Pro3 users?
The discount for Pro3 users expired publicly on March 31, 2012. This represented a 6-month grace period that Pro3 users could get the same discount as Pro4 users for Pro5. Since we no longer do any more development on ProPresenter 3, our goal is to retire this version completely. We wanted to let as many customers as possible upgrade at the discounted price for a reasonable period of time and notified everyone several times about this opportunity. If you're happy with ProPresenter 3 and don't wish to upgrade, then no problem - you certainly don't have to upgrade.
Our licensing is based on the delineation between single use vs. concurrent use as well as Mac vs. PC.
Single User License
You may load the software on as many machines of the same platform as you want (all Macs or all PCs), but you can only use one copy of it at a time in a live environment (in front of an audience). All other copies using the same single license will run with the watermark as depicted below. This is best termed a non-concurrent use license and platform specific.
NOTE: A Single License is platform specific (Mac or Windows - not both) and good for only one campus. Software licenses cannot be transferred (sold or donated) to another organization or individual.
A Site License may be used in as many live environments as needed on a single campus simultaneously (multiple buildings is fine). Essentially, our site license is priced as a "Buy 2 get unlimited free" of our single user license pricing. It's also platform independent. So if you want maximum flexibility to operate ProPresenter on any platform in as many rooms as you like, the Site License is a great value.
NOTE: A Site License works on both Mac and Windows. If you have multiple campuses, then EACH campus must have its own single-user or site license.
Help files are available right within ProPresenter under the help menu. Or you may download any of the comprehensive PDF manual(s) below:
