OriginLab® Offers New Option to Expand Single-User Academic
Licenses to Several Users
Academic researchers can now buy additional node-locked
licenses for $99 to share their copy.
NORTHAMPTON, MA, January 31, 2005 - OriginLab Corporation announces
a new academic pricing option that allows professors and academic researchers
to easily share their copy of Origin with others within their department. Origin
7.5 is a software application that combines point-and-click interfaces for scientific
graphing and data analysis with a powerful programming environment. For over
ten years Origin has been widely used within industry and academia. Now OriginLab's
new additional academic license option provides an extremely affordable method
of providing Origin for several users. Meanwhile, for groups larger than 10,
such as for department-wide licenses, Origin continues to offer custom license
Since Origin now uses license management software, one must obtain a valid
license file in order to run the product. The standard academic single license,
the price of which remains unchanged, permits three license files per serial
number for work, home, and a notebook computer. Now, at the time of purchase,
the researcher can also buy additional single node-locked licenses,
for only $99 each, to allow his or her copy of Origin to be used by others.
This new license option will make it easier than ever before to deploy Origin
within a small academic department. Fellow faculty and/or graduate students
can take advantage of Origin's wide-range of graphing and analysis capabilities.
Over 60 built-in plot types allow you to quickly create 2D, 3D, contour, and
image graphs. Advanced data analysis tools include statistics, signal processing,
curve fitting and peak analysis. The Origin C programming capability combined
with the numerical computation and graphing power makes Origin a robust platform
for routine data processing, analysis, and algorithm development.
The standard academic price of Origin is $489, which entitles the owner to
use the product on up to three machines. However, now additional node-locked
licenses may be obtained at the time of purchase for $99 each.
