As you all know due to the coronavirus the whole events industry is flat on its back right now. We’re now 3 months into this and it’s still unbelievable that something so catastrophic could happen to all of us at the same time all around the world.
Live-streams and virtual stages or even drive-inn raves are OK for now but it’s not the same. This is not why you became a VJ. You want to be at a show, big or small, in front of a live audience to enjoy the music and provide the live visuals. We were not born to stare at a little screen all day, we want to go out and experience real life.
Of course Resolume is also hit by this. Our software and footage revenue is at an all-time low, but, we’re all working from home and Resolume development is continuing. We know many of you are hit way harder and some of you have literally not done any gigs since March. This is why we want to share the pain and try to help where we can. We’ve extended all Resolume 7 licenses by 3 months for free on July 1st so you do not have to renew your license anytime soon.
We can’t wait for things to get back to normal. Let’s hope we all can start doing what we love again very soon.
P.S. You do not have to do anything to get the 3 months extra on your license. Just start Avenue or Arena on your computer with an internet connection and it will automatically refresh its license. You'll see the new expire date on the Register tab of the Preferences. This also works when you use a dongle to manage your license.
