Congratulations!

Now that you have downloaded SNIP, you will want to install it and register it on the target machine.

But do not register too fast…   The evaluation copy of SNIP you have just downloaded starts in the Basic mode allowing up to eight simultaneous data streams and operating for one hour each time it is started.  [You can restart SNIP as many times as you wish]  This allows you to evaluate more of SNIPs core features.  You can, for example, evaluate the NEAR functionality during the evaluation period.

Each time you restart SNIP, your prior settings are retained, so it is easy to build up or edit your first network.  When SNIP starts for the first time, a connection to one of our open servers is made to show you as few examples common RTCM streams.

If you encounter problems setting up SNIP for your own stream, please drop us note at:  support -at- use-snip.com (replace the -at- with @ of course).

When you decide to register SNIP, it will revert to Lite mode with fewer features, and the one hour time limit will be removed to allow for 24-7 usage.  If you have purchased another model (Basic, Pro, or Enterprise) then the key you were provided will allow you to unlock those features.

Need more features?

The Lite edition of SNIP is free for both commercial and noncommercial use, but has a limited number of connections to other data sources.  You can run as many copies, on as many different machines, as you desire.  The other models, with increased connection abilities and other useful features, are node-locked and can be purchased from the web site.  You can upgrade at any time.
