Helix DNA Technology Licenses

The Helix Community caters to many constituencies, each of which has different goals in addition to a shared objective of extending the Helix platform. To allow individuals, developers and their respective organizations the maximum flexibility, we have multiple licenses, each tailored to a different constituency and their needs.

The Helix DNA and Real codec source code is currently available for R&D purposes under either OSI approved open source licenses or commercial licenses.  These licenses have differing obligations that range from code sharing obligations to commercial royalty payments.

In order to assist you in selecting the appropriate license for your needs you may visit the commercial implementations or the open source implementations pages for additional information.
