Post Temporary Licenses for Creative Tools to Help Customers Impacted by COVID-19

Hello everyone,

Below are details on how Avid plans to assist our community in adjusting their workflows to accommodate COVID-19 virus precautions.

As you know, coronavirus cases (COVID-19) have increased around the world, more businesses are mandating employees work from home. With this mandate, many of our larger customers are asking about getting employees access to licenses for an interim amount of time, so that they can work from home, and continue to deliver on their projects/assignments/deliverables. As a result, Avid is making available to those organizations additional remote licenses for employees to use during this crisis. We have developed a process by which these licenses can be requested, and we will look to deliver them as quickly as possible.

Also, many educational institutes are closing down facilities and requiring their students continue their learning efforts from home. Any student enrolled in an Avid course at a qualifying educational institution who is unable to attend school and can no longer access school facilities may receive a temporary license to the Avid Creative Tools (see below).

How Avid is assisting
On Monday, March 16, 2020 through Friday, April 17, 2020 for those who are unable to access their systems at their facilities and thus must work from home, we will provide directions on how to access 90-day temporary licenses of Media Composer | Ultimate, Pro Tools, Pro Tools | Ultimate, or Sibelius | Ultimate subject to some restrictions which will be outlined later. In addition, any student enrolled in an Avid course at a qualifying educational institution who is unable to attend school and/or has no access to school facilities may also receive a temporary license to the products identified above.

The temporary licenses will only be provided to a user whose company or educational institution owns the same product being requested, and the product is either on an active subscription or under an active upgrade and support contract. A maximum of one license will be provided per one owned and the license will be provided for 90 days. If you are an Avid Learning Partner, (ALP) member, you should have received instructions from Avid’s ALP Program team directly. Please follow those instructions for providing licenses to your students.

On Monday, March 16,2020 the complete details of the Avid Creative Product FOC License Instructions will be provided at

Hope this helps, and as more details are available we will let you know.
