FAQ - Avid Media Composer v8.8 Upgrade and Reinstatement Offer

Attention Avid Media Composer editors and users: Media Composer upgrades are back for a limited time! We hope this article will answer your questions and help you upgrade your software with all of the great features in v8.8.

Who qualifies for the limited time Avid Media Composer Upgrade and Reinstatement offer?

Anyone who currently owns Avid Media Composer v3.0 or higher, Avid Symphony v3.0 or higher or Avid NewsCutter v7.0 or higher, qualifies for this special limited time offer (offer expires 3/31/17). Note:  Avid Meridien and Xpress systems do not qualify.

What do I get with the Avid Media Composer Upgrade and Reinstatement offer?

Avid Media Composer owners will get the upgrade to the latest Media Composer v8.8 software along with an Avid Standard Support Plan that will allow you to download all updates and upgrades for the next calendar year. Avid Symphony  and NewsCutter owners will be upgraded to Media Composer with the corresponding Symphony and/or NewsCutter options.

When I purchase the Avid Media Composer Upgrade and Reinstatement offer will I still have a Perpetual License or a Subscription?

The Avid Media Composer Upgrade and Reinstatement offer is for perpetual licenses.  If you own a Perpetual License now,  this upgrade and reinstatement offer, allows you to “catch-up” with the latest version of the Media Composer software.  Your license remains the same ( System ID )  but now you are adding Avid Standard Support with upgrade rights for the next year.  At the end of the next year, you may continue to renew your Avid support for $285/year and continue to enjoy the new features and functionality of the application.

Why is this offer so special?

Avid editors who are still on Media Composer v3.x thru v7.x  and aren’t on an Avid Support and Upgrade Plan can now get the latest version of Avid Media Composer v8.8 without having to buy a new Perpetual license or a new Subscription.  Media Composer v8.8 adds many new features to the editing application......[continue reading on Videoguys]
