Avid MC5.5 info
With the announcement of MC5.5, there appears to be some confusion about upgrades. Here's some more info to help clarify your options:

Avid Media Composer 5 Owners:
Once Media Composer 5.5 is released a downloadable upgrade for Media Composer 5 users who purchased before Feb. 8th will be available direct from Avid for $149 or you may purchase a boxed upgrade that also includes the Avid Production Suite with 3rd party software from us at $395. The only change in the 3rd party software is that Boris Continuum AVX has been updated to ver 7.

Do I qualify for a free upgrade?
You’re eligible to receive a free upgrade to Media Composer 5.5 if you meet one of the following requirements:
