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:
* You purchased and registered a full or upgrade version of Media Composer 5 on or after February 8, 2011 (register your full version or upgrade)
* You have a valid Avid Support contract/plan (just log in to the Download Center to get your free upgrade when available)

Avid Xpress Pro/DV or Media Composer 3/4 Owners:
The boxed upgrade to MC5.5 with the Avid Production Suite from MC4.x or older, Xpress Pro or Xpress DV will be $895.
You can save $200 by purchasing the Media Composer 5 boxed upgrade before March 8th for $695 from Videoguys (while supplies last).
Make sure you register ASAP, then download the FREE upgrade to 5.5 from Avid, when it is released March 8th. Avid Media Composer 5.5 is coming to Videoguys
