    Re: avid and students in europe

    Job ter Burg:
    Dylan, do you have any idea how many cracked PC versions of Avid are out there?

    Nowhere near as many as there are FCP. It's lower profile, and given it's picky hardware demands isn't nearly as popular with hobbiests as FCP, Premiere, or Vegas, which is the darling of the home-hacker crowd now.

    Sure, cracked versions of FCP. Net result, Apple sells a computer. And now with V7 you need an Intel computer... throw out the G5s baby.

     

    Avid cracked version. Net result, Avid gets nothing, nada, zip, bobkes.....

     

    See the problem?

    Indeed, Apple's big silver dongle is definitely a benefit for them in that way. Although in most cases Apple will have sold the computer already.

    The benefit (if you can call it that) of widely pirated software is that people play with it and become familiar with it. Would it make a difference? I dunno. But I've certainly noticed it in the past.

    Re: avid and students in europe

    Frederic,

    Justin in our Europe office handles this and I know has been working on strategy and pricing in light of our recent changes in MC and the need to be more aggressive in EDU.  He is back Monday and I have asked that he chime in or at a minimum email you directly.

    HTH and wish I could be more help on this one....

    Frederic,

    i haven't really noticed any changes in the price range

    How is this not an interesting offer (295 USD incl 4 years of free upgrades)? You should be able to get the same deal in Europe, through a reseller and and educational institution.
