    Symphony upgrade option on perpetual MC licence

    As the title suggests, is this still available for a Media Composer perpetual dongle?

    I know this was an available option in December of last year (for the new price of around $90) when I was renewing my year's support. Looking at my account info, I can add another year of support, but there seems no mention of upgrading to Symphony.

    Yes, it’s still available.

    It’s not an upgrade, and not done from your master account — it’s an additional option you buy, which you then activate via Pplication Manager (or if you have a dongle, Customer Support can move that SY license to your domgle.

    You may find this interesting: https://www.videoguys.com/symphony-option-promo.html, but I’m not sure that’s still valid (but it won’t hurt to ask them).

    Normal pricing is quite a bit more costly: https://shop.avid.com/ccrz__ProductDetails?sku=9511-65550-00 or  https://www.videoguys.com/symphony-option.html

    Thanks for the info.

    The Videoguys page says... 'Don't miss out on this great opportunity—valid until December 31st, 2017'... so I'm guessing this offer has expired.

    Shame, at $99 (plus upgrade & support plan for 1 year) I would go for it, but not at $749!
