SabreTooth MEWS license process

Only the GV STRATUS server with role of Common Services requires this process.

The following MEWS license is installed on the GV STRATUS server with role of Common Services. Typically the GV STRATUS Core server has the role of Common Services.

These licenses are required for each MEWS Service software component in your GV STRATUS system. They are SabreTooth floating licenses, not restricted to a single computer.


The STRATUS-XCODECONTROLMEWSEXT license supports native format transfers between Avid and GV STRATUS, without transcoding capability. With this license, native format is the only supported transcode format for imports via the rules engine.

The STRATUS-XCODECONTROLMEWS license is optional for added functionality: it supports all MEWS transcode formats in import rules.

Note: Multiple MEWS licenses of the same type are not supported in a GV STRATUS system.
  1. Refer to the license sheet that you received with your GV STRATUS license. The license sheet has the Sales Order number that you need.
  2. On the GV STRATUS server with role of Common Services, run the SabreTooth License Manager, generate a unique ID, and send the email to Grass Valley requesting your license or licenses. Refer to this Topic Library for detailed licensing procedures.
  3. When you receive your license file, use SabreTooth License Manager and install it on the server.
