Olympus use a selection of licensing models to simplify the use and installation of products. Please see the sections below for more information on the licensing models available…
Standalone Single User
A paper license slip is supplied with each recorder and transcription kit, the license key is required at point of a Standalone installation. The license slip style varies depending on the product, but typically includes both Windows and Mac license keys.
Please DO NOT discard the license slip!
Replacements cannot be issued free of charge.
The license key used will determine the software module installed, either Dictation or Transcription.
Olympus Volume License (OVL)
A volume license (multi user license) is issued in exchange for paper license slip(s). If you need to purchase additional licenses then please contact your Olympus dealer.
An OVL can be used to install the Olympus software in Standalone or Workgroup mode.
By installing the Olympus software in Workgroup mode, you can benefit from an automated license distribution (via a central license manager).
Please note “ODMS for Administrators” software is required for central license management and virtualisation support (e.g. Terminal Services, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, etc) when installing the Olympus Software in Workgroup mode.
Note: Only the ODMS Release 6 licenses are eligible for exchange for a volume license any other software licenses won't be accepted.
