Sibelius launches new License Server for easier student access to music software
London, UK, 9 January 2008 – Sibelius Software has unveiled a major update to their License Server system, enabling schools and universities to easily move Sibelius music software licenses around their networked computers to offer greater access for students.
A new, non-technical user-interface enables music teachers and assistants – not just ICT coordinators – to easily assign and reassign ‘floating’ (concurrent) licenses to specific computers in ICT labs or computer-equipped classrooms.
“When schools have made the investment to provide their students with computer labs and network set-ups, we want to help by enabling access to Sibelius for as many students as possible,” says Jeremy Silver, Managing Director of Sibelius Software “Our network license server is a simple way to allow the installation of Sibelius 5 on every networked PC and Mac in the school and then easily enabling music teachers to move floating licenses between machines – without having to the pester the ICT coordinator!”
The Sibelius License Server is provided with a multi-user purchase of Sibelius 5 to help schools make the most of their investment in the world’s best-selling music notation software.
In addition to benefiting schools, the new Sibelius License Server also helps universities and public libraries manage their Sibelius licenses in the same way. Professional sheet music publishers running multiple copies of Sibelius on a network will also benefit.
