Confused about Avid Media Composer options

Videoguys is an authorized Avid partner and we are happy to offer Avid Media Composer Software and are available to help answer any questions that you may have. There are now a few different ways to purchase Avid Media Composer and our technicians at 800-323-2325 can help you determine which option is best for your needs.

Avid Media Composer Software -

ATTENTION Avid Editors: Upgrade Today!
If you are already an Avid editor then you may upgrade to the latest version of Avid Media Composer before May 29th for only $699 (add to cart to see our special price). We would like to explain that you are NOT actually purchasing a software upgrade like you may have in the past. This purchase is an annual support package that includes free upgrades, updates and patches for a year. There are two flavors of this annual support contract, one for Media Composer owners and one for Symphony owners. The annual support package does not include any 3rd party software, but you can keep using the 3rd party software you already own, although you may require an upgrade from the 3rd party software vendor.

If you've already purchased a support plan and upgraded to Media Composer 8 but need to renew your plan we also have the Renewals available.

NEW CUSTOMERS: Buy or Subscribe - New Avid editors have two choices on how they can purchase Media Composer

BUY A PERPETUAL LICENSE - You can still own the software by purchasing a Media Composer Perpetual License. This includes the first year annual support contract as well so you will have access to all upgrades released for the next 12 months. The Support Plan and upgrades may be renewed annually with a Standard Support Plan Renewal. The perpetual license only includes NewBlue Titler Pro v1, along with trial versions to Sorenson Squeeze Lite and iZotope Insight.

SUBSCRIBE ANNUALLY - The new Avid Media Composer Annual Subscription plan is a fantastic value. For $599 you donít just get Avid Media Composer, you also get the Symphony option! The 3rd party software is much better as well. You get New Blue Titler v2, Sorenson Squeeze Lite, Boris Continuum Lite and a 30 day trail to iZotope Insight. You also get a year of Avid support which entitles you to all upgrades and updates.

Avid has introduced a new option for facilities called Floating Licenses. You can purchase these as a pack of 20 or 50 licenses. Each pack also includes floating license server software which allows you to manage and deploy your seats as you wish. With a floating license server you can install Avid on as many machines as you like throughout your organization. The server then controls how many people can be using the software concurrently.

We are proud to offer discounted Subscriptions, Perpetual and Floating Licenses for students, teachers and schools. Click here for all Media Composer Academic options.
