It’s really important to us that our customers are sure that CatDV is right before making a purchase. As a result we offer free trials of all CatDV products.

For our networked products or to trial our integration functions (including Final Cut, Media Composer or Premiere) …

Please contact us or one of our resellers or distributors who will be able to provide time limited, fully functional evaluation licenses.

For our stand-alone products …

If you’d like to give CatDV a go, first check whether your computer meets the system requirements (virtually any modern Macintosh or Windows PC is likely to be compatible, though under Windows you may need to download some additional third party software – all free!). You can then download a free trial of CatDV Standard or Professional Edition for your platform.

There are several versions of CatDV: the entry-level Standard Edition, and the Professional Edition with a number of additional features designed specifically for professional users are available for free trials. (You can also use CatDV with an optional server to support networked operation.)

These downloads are the actual application, but operate as a save- and print-disabled demo until you enter a valid registration code (you can request a temporary code if you want to evaluate all the features).

By installing the demo you can check to make sure there are no incompatibilities with your system or problems reading your media files before committing to purchasing CatDV.
