Licensing Model

For MegaMatcher Accelerator, please
see Licensing MegaMatcher Accelerator.

Product Development

An integrator should obtain either a MegaMatcher 13.1 Standard SDK (EUR 2590) or MegaMatcher 13.1 Extended SDK (EUR 4990) to develop a end-user product based on MegaMatcher technology. The SDK needs to be purchased just once and may be used for all projects and by all the developers within the integrator's company.

The table lists the biometric components and their quantities which are included in MegaMatcher SDK (the list can be narrowed with filtering by certain requirements based on the target biometric system):

Filter the list of biometric components:
Fingerprint components
Face components
Iris components
Voice components
Palm print components
Server-side components (multiplatform)
Windows, macOS or Linux client components
Android, iOS and ARM Linux client components

Integrators can obtain additional component licenses if more component licenses are required for the development process.

Product Deployment

To deploy their developed products, an integrator need obtain licenses of components for every computer or device, where component will be installed together with integrator's product. See Product Advisor and high productivity system architecture to find out what specific components will be needed for the deployment of your system. Integrators can purchase additional MegaMatcher component licenses if required at anytime.

License activation options

The components are copy-protected. The following license activation options are available:

  • Serial numbers are used to activate licenses for particular MegaMatcher components on particular computer or device. The activation is done via the Internet or by email. After activation the network connection is not required for single computer license usage.
    1. Activation by serial number is not suitable for ARM-Linux, except BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi 3 devices.
    2. Activation by serial number is not suitable for virtual environments.
  • Internet activation. A special license file is stored on a computer or a mobile/embedded device; the license file allows to run particular MegaMatcher components on that computer or device after checking the license over the Internet. Internet connection should be available periodically for a short amount of time. A single computer license can be transferred to another computer or device by moving the license file there and waiting until the previous activation expires.
  • Volume License Manager. Licenses may be stored in a volume license manager dongle. The license activation may be performed without connection to the Internet and is suitable for virtual environments. Volume license manager is used on site by integrators or end users to manage licenses for MegaMatcher components in the following ways:
    • Activating single computer licenses – An installation license for a MegaMatcher component will be activated for use on a particular computer. The number of available licenses in the license manager will be decreased by the number of activated licenses.
    • Managing single computer licenses via a LAN or the Internet – The license manager allows the management of installation licenses for MegaMatcher components across multiple computers or mobile/embedded devices in a LAN or over the Internet. The number of managed licenses is limited by the number of licenses in the license manager. No license activation is required and the license quantity is not decreased. Once issued, the license is assigned to a specific computer or device on the network.
    • Using license manager as a dongle – A volume license manager containing at least one license for a MegaMatcher component may be used as a dongle, allowing the MegaMatcher component to run on the particular computer where the dongle is attached.
    Additional MegaMatcher component licenses for the license manager may be purchased at any time.

Licenses Validity

All SDK and component licenses are perpetual and do not have expiration. There are no annual fee or any other fees except license purchasing fee. It is possible to move licenses from one computer or device to another. Neurotechnology provides a way to renew the license if the computer undergoes changes due to technical maintenance.

Licensing Agreement

The Licensing Agreement contains all licensing terms and conditions.

Note that you unambiguously accept this agreement by placing an order using Neurotechnology online ordering service or by email or other means of communications. Please read the agreement before making an order.

Disaster recovery licenses

Disaster recovery licenses for MegaMatcher server-side components are intended for using in disaster recovery centers (DRC). A DRC is a location which has the same equipment as the primary site, completely mirrors the data environment of the primary site and is on standby while the primary site is working. If the primary site fails, the DRC takes over operations.

Licenses for these MegaMatcher server-side components are available for disaster recovery centers with 40 % discount:

Other Licensing Options

VAR License

The above described licensing model is intended for end-user product developers. Integrators who want to develop and sell a MegaMatcher-based development tool (with API, programming possibilities, programming samples, etc.), must obtain permission from Neurotechnology and sign a special VAR agreement.

For more information please contact us.

Enterprise License

The MegaMatcher enterprise license allows an unlimited use of MegaMatcher components in end-user products for a specific territory, market segment or project. Specific restrictions would be included in the licensing agreement.

The enterprise license price depends on the application size and the number of potential users of the application within the designated territory, market segment or project.
