    "...and get the option to buy Symphony for an additional $99 USD..."

     

    sounds very good to me, buying meaning it will be mine to keep.

    however, on the videguys website, looking into more details, i see this:

    "You will receive an redemption code that will add Avid Symphony Option to your current account. You will be able to continue to use that Symphony Option for as long as you keep an active Avid Standard Support contract"

     

    so, that sounds to me more like renting

    Thats misleading on their end.  You own the perpetual license. So when you renew, that nets you another year and the Symphony Option for the added $99.  So say in a years time, you decide not to renew..... then you still own the license and the symphony option and will be able to use the LAST version you were entitled too prior to the plan expiring.

    thats not renting.

    I will get with Gary of videoguys.com on that

    Marianna,
    That's very exciting!  Any word on what the annual renewal costs will be to keep Symphony up to date in the future?  
    thanks, Darin

    So far none....  If we do add to the app, it will most likely be in the MC itself.  If by chance we update the Symphony Option, I would expect the upgrade to be minimal but this hasnt been discussed so... I have no idea.

    Re: Renew MC Supprt & Upgrade Plan - Get Symphony Option for $99

    >If you already Renewed between July 1st, 2017 and August 17th, 2017 

    What is the logic for perpetual users that if they renewed before July 1st they are not eligible? I thought it is irrelevant when i renew? renewal has to occur before the expiration date to get another year.

    Looks like I was a few days to early with my renewal payment. Transaction date June 28, clearing date June 30.

    I cannot see the offer in my account > My special offers.

    There was a special offer last 2 quarters that if you bought a reinstatement plan you got Symphony.  This is for renewals - i.e. people who kept their plans active.  email me with your System ID, My Avid and the invoice for purchase and I can see what i can do.

    Re: Renew MC Supprt & Upgrade Plan - Get Symphony Option for $99

    So to be clear,  If I renew my support ( which expires in Dec) now and buy the Symphony offer, I will get symphony now and then the support will renew when it expires in december for another year.  In other words, I wont lose out by renewing early?

     

    Thanks

    Re: Renew MC Supprt & Upgrade Plan - Get Symphony Option for $99

    That is correct. You'd simply be adding 12 months of support to your existing contract. That, and a perpatual license for the Symphony option.
