The new licensing models will better accommodate users doing
high volume encoding. Sorenson had found that a growing number of users were
attempting to use desktop versions of its Squeeze product to handle high-volume
video encoding. Desktop versions of the tool have a limit of 1,500 files
encoded per month. The new licensing models reflect pricing appropriate to
enterprise server-level software.
The Squeeze for Flash license, based on the company's product
for encoding video into Flash, enables users to efficiently encode in SWF and
FLV formats. The Squeeze Compression Suite license, based on Squeeze
Compression Suite, enhanced with additional plug-ins, supports all leading
formats, including Windows Media, QuickTime, Flash, Real, MPEG-1, MPEG-2,
MPEG-4, 3GPP and PSP.
The Sorenson Squeeze for Flash license is priced at an
annual subscription level of $1,238 per system in single-unit quantities. The
Sorenson Squeeze Compression Suite license is priced at an annual subscription
rate of $2,500 per system in single-unit quantities. Neither price includes the
On2 Pro Codec, which is available at an additional cost.
Both licensing models include unlimited encoding and are
applicable to large-scale users such as media organizations and video sharing
sites that encode up to thousands of videos per day. Customers for both
licensing models will receive all available Sorenson Squeeze upgrades. The
purchase of the Squeeze for Flash license and the Squeeze Compression Suite
license will include an upgrade from Sorenson Squeeze 4.0 and earlier versions
to Sorenson Squeeze 4.5, and to subsequent versions of Sorenson Squeeze
released by the company while the license is in effect.
