    MC doesnt include Symphony but MC Ultimate does.  They are defferent beasts there days.  

    which one are you really referring too?

    Hi Marianna, Telegram,

    If I may join in...

    This was included in the rebranding doument and I'm still looking for some numbers or clarification. I currently own symphony and PhraseFind.

    "Media Composer | Ultimate will come bundled with additional software: the ScriptSync, PhraseFind, Symphony and NewsCutter options. All of these options will also be available to Media Composer customers as purchasable
    subscriptions
    ."

     

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Thanks, M. I wanted to refer a potential new customer and saw the $199.US  Pay up front 12-month MC subscription offer but with no mention of Symphony as included. As I recall, in the past, the monthly MC subscription did include Symphony option, among other goodies.

    If someone wants the best current subscription deal that includes Symphony Option, is that the Ultimate subscription only?  and if so, what's the "Pay Up Front" price? (if available for Ultimate).

    MC and MC Ultimate differ in that they have afew fetures that set them apart now.  One that is the most obvious is using the MC Ultimate with shared storage, NEXIS etc. which you can't with MC now.   If a customer buys the 1,2 3 year subscription plan then they get Media Composer | PhraseFind Option, ScriptSync Option, Symphony Option, and NewsCutter Option  again this is included with Media Composer | Ultimate 1-, 2-, and 3-year subscriptions.  

    Thats the best way to go IMO for a new user.

    Media Composer | Ultimate will come bundled with additional software: the ScriptSync, PhraseFind, Symphony and NewsCutter options when a new MC Ultimate Subscription in a 1, 2 or 3 year plan is purchased.  

    Existing MC users who renew will get the MC Ultimate software ( which as you know has a few features that MC doesnt have now ) and can opt to add the options if they dont have them already at subscription pricing.

    Thanks for that! And someday they’ll sell a custom keyboard with your name replacing the HELP key!

    I currently have a Symphony perpetual license and I renew my support contract every year.   So next time I update, does it become "Symphony Ultimate?"

    It stays Media Composer perpetual, which still includes support for shared storage, and you keep the Symphony option. So nothing changes for you, really.

    ...but Symphony Ultimate had such a nice ring to it! Big Smile
