Got an older version of Media Composer, Symphony, or NewsCutter—even as far back as version 3? Or maybe you’ve got a more recent version of Media Composer, but let your Annual Upgrade and Support Plan expire? Then Avid has some fantastic news for you…

First, if you haven’t heard already, ScriptSync and PhraseFind are back! And Avid has updated both of these new Media Composer options to be even better than ever. But you’ll need the latest version of Media Composer to use them. Luckily, Avid is also making Media Composer upgrades available once again, so those of you who let your Annual Upgrade and Support Plan expire, or never had one, can welcome these powerful tools back into your workflow again—or for the first time.

For a limited period only, you can upgrade to the latest version of Media Composer, which includes a 1-year Annual Upgrade and Support Plan that provides access to all future releases and expert help when you need it, for only $399. That’s nearly 70% off the price you would normally have to pay to get the latest Media Composer features if you don’t have an upgrade plan!

Why upgrade?
Depending on what version of Media Composer, Symphony, or NewsCutter you have, here are just a few highlights of what may be new to you:

  • Work with any media in any resolution, including SD, HD, UHD, 3D, HDR, 2K, 4K, and beyond
