License Preservation When Switching Between Encoder & Decoder
This document explains whether additional licenses that have been added are preserved when switching the MPX Node between Encoder and Decoder mode.
Are additional licenses that have been added preserved when switching the MPX Node between Encoder and Decoder mode?
Q: If you have bought an MPX Node encoder with an additional 2 stream license, for example, and you switch the encoder for a short time to a decoder, will the 2 stream license still be there when you switch the unit back from decoder to encoder?
A: Yes. I changed my encoder unit (which has a "4 additional streams" license) to a decoder and back again. I could see that license in the System Setup screen even while it was in Decoder mode. And all streams were present once it was back in Encoder mode.
