About Your eID

What’s an eID?
Your eID links you to your EDIUS Pro/Workgroup license key the first time that you use EDIUS Pro/Workgroup. This provides much greater license security, and helps Grass Valley to combat piracy and illegal software use.

Authentication of your serial number with your eID is necessary to launch EDIUS. The first time EDIUS is launched after installation, a serial number and eID verification screen will appear. EDIUS Pro//Workgroup will launch if they can be authenticated.

eID Online Functions
After successfully creating and registering your eID, you will be able to access your personal eID page online to do the following:

  • Check your serial number information (confirmed after EDIUS verification)
  • Receive a Trial Version license (a trial version license can be activated for each product only once)

How to create an eID
Follow the instructions on the eID registration page, enter the information required and then click ‘eID Registration’. You will then receive an email, with instructions explaining how to complete your registration.
