Good news for everyone who spends their spare time eyeing up Avid Symphony systems – Avid have introduced two new ways to save money when you make the move to Symphony 6.5 before March 15th, 2013.
Until then, they’re running a pair of promotions that give you up to 40% off your system. If you pair your Symphony 6.5 licence with Avid’s Mojo DX, it’s just £3999 ex VAT until March – a huge 40% discount. Opting for Symphony and a Nitris DX will cost just £5799 – 40% less than usual.
So which is for you?
Both Mojo DX and Nitris DX offer top quality I/O, and come with features for every part of your pipeline, from ScriptSync for when you need to find your best takes in a hurry to 4:4:4: HD-RGB support for when you’re finally ready to play out your footage. However, if you need analogue I/O as well as SDI or have to handle S3D footage, you’ll need a Nitris DX. It’s also worth bearing in mind that Nitrix DX can decode and encode DNxHD and AVC-Intra natively using Avid option boards, while if you go for a Mojo DX, you’ll have to rely on your computer’s CPU for these tasks, and that can slow down performance.
