IMPORTANT - End of Support dates for Legacy Vantage Versions

Please be aware that Telestream support for the following versions will cease on 31st December 2018.

Vantage Versions 6.3 , 6.3 UP1, 6.3 UP2, 6.3 UP3,6.3 UP4, 6.3 UP5.

Recommended Product Migration Version:

Telestream recommends that customers upgrade to Vantage 7.1 or later as soon as possible. The current Vantage version is 7.1 UP1, released March 23, 2018. If you have a current maintenance and support agreement, you can download the 7.1 software at no charge. 

Vantage version 7 was released in July, 2016 and features a number of key architectural improvements that are designed to make Vantage run more efficiently, and to make the process of updating to future Vantage versions much easier and reliable.

Vantage 7 introduced Secured Version Control, which allows workflows created with an earlier version of Vantage 7+ to continue running that Vantage version’s workflow code. This allows you to upgrade to a new version of Vantage, but leave most of your existing workflows running under the previous Vantage (7) version(s), and upgrade the individual workflows whenever you are ready.

Further information including FAQ's can be found HERE.

Please also note : On December 31, 2017 Telestream ceased testing new versions of Vantage on Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008. All Vantage users, who want to install new Vantage versions released after January 1st, 2018, need to migrate from Windows Server 2008 to a supported Windows Server version, either Server 2016 or Server 2012. Additionally, customers who are still running Microsoft SQL Server 2008 should migrate to SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014.

This offer is only applicable to orders received and booked to take place before 21st December 2018, and excludes travel & accommodation expenses.
