As you’re aware by now Media Composer 7 is just around the corner! If you happened to have just purchased Media Composer v6.5 fear not, you may be entitled to Media Composer 7 at no additional charge…
As of April 7, 2013 new pricing has been in effect for Media Composer, Symphony and NewsCutter. Customers can take advantage of this new, lower pricing and still receive all of the benefits and features of Media Composer 7 and NewsCutter 11 through a complimentary upgrade (once they’re released).
Customers who purchase Media Composer 6.5 or NewsCutter 10.5 after April 7, 2013 and activate the “Download Code” before June 30, 2013 are “Protected” and entitled to a software upgrade to 7/11 (respectively) at no additional charge.
How the Process Works
1. Any customer that purchased a physical kit for Media Composer 6.5, Symphony 6.5 or NewsCutter 10.5 (either a new copy or an upgrade from a previous version) after April 7, 2013 must redeem the “Download Code” they received with their pruchase before June 30, 2013 to qualify. Customers who purchased from the online Avid store during this period will automatically qualify. All customers must also register their product, either through the Avid Registration website or the editing application.
2. Once Media Composer 7 and NewsCutter 11 are released and available, an upgrade license (Activation ID) and new installers will be automatically deposited in the customer’s Master Avid Account.
