    Symphony 'upgrade' path - Can someone explain?

    Have been using Symphony for a lot of years, and currently running MC 7.04 with symphony option.

    From what I understand, the recommended option is to get the $299 'annual support/upgrade' before the end of 2014, but I'm a bit uncertain what this means.

    Is this an upgrade to MC 8 WITH the symphony option, and exactly what is included in the annual $299?

     

    Thanks!

    If the perpetual license you have invludes Symphony then the $299 gives you the same options.

    The $299 deal is a good deal and earns Avid a lot less than the regular rental subscription. You'll notice that it therfore includes less of thre bundled options the rental scheme offers.

    Yes. You upgrade your MC7 to whatever the current version is, and you simply keep your Symphony option.

    The 299 includes 12 months of any updates or upgrades to Media Composer (any version released in that period) plus basic support (unlimited via email, one phone call per month) for those same 12 months. After 12 months you renew, or the license will be 'stuck' at whatever version it is on at that point in time.
