Choosing The Right FieldView Solution - Intelligent Light and FieldView

FieldView products are available in annual and perpetual licenses. Licenses are floating and available to entire team through your license server.

  • Annual license (A) - Product license and support for specific annual or multi-year term.
  • Perpetual license (P) - Product license is purchased upfront in perpetuity but support is paid annually.
  • Single system (SS) - A node-locked (non-floating) license that runs only on a specific system for a single user and limited to 3 processor cores. Using FieldView in client-server mode provides flexibility for compute-intensive tasks.
