Avid Media Composer Editors: Upgrade your software and improve your workflow with these Top 10 hand-picked products from our Techs at Videoguys.com
If you’re an Avid Media Composer editor we have everything you need to update and upgrade your workflow. Obviously the first priority is to make sure we get you the best price on an Avid Support Plan that will renew your service from Avid and give you access to all software upgrades released in the next year. Then we can offer great deals on hardware, storage and software plug-ins.
Avid Support Plan Renewals - $285.00
Before we recommend any products for Avid Editors we need to emphasize how important and valuable it is to keep your Avid Support Plan active and up-to-date. Avid Standard Support allows you access to all upgrades and updates for the next year. You may purchase this renewal at any time and add it to the end of your current contract to avoid any lapse in coverage. If you let this support plan lapse your only choice will be to then purchase a new license or Media Composer subscription.
