Default Media Station PT 2.7 is $495 ?!

So let me get this straight. After leaving PT7.2 my Media Station 1.8.2 software is unusable. I can no longer adjust color levels on my Mojo and use Media Station for laybacks, etc. Media Staion 2.7 finally comes out after a year and it's $495! That's a third of what I paid for my Mojo. Digi, is there a better upgrade price from 1.8.2??

Hi PilPro,

i think Avid didn´t see the writings on the wall. FCP Studio for $1299, Final Cut exp.4 $199 and Logic Studio for $499.

I owned MS 1.8 but why spend 495$ for MS 2.7 as an upgrade? Thats too much for me.


Regards

Jochen

The upgrade is 500$ but what about the computer hardware?
The HP XW8000 is not supported anymore so it seems we need a new system to run...
Anyone here tested it on XW8000 with Nvidia XGL 980 Graphix and 2GB of RAM? We don't need HD-Video on that system, just want to upgrade the ProTools-Software and have the Mediastation working in SD-offline-resolution, so it's hard to find a reason to spend lots of money for the upgrade and new computer-hardware...

I too am unhappy with the upgrade price and am looking for alternatives. Will FCP work with the Mojo?

Hi Richard,

we use PT and Mojo to do on air promos. They were edited with FCP and we get a DV QT movie to work with.
It´s a little bit buggy, cause the movie isn´t always in sync. Sometimes it is, sometimes it´s not. So we must find a better solution ,cause in the near future we will work with over 50 FCP and 7 PT systems with mojo and the same sync problems.

Thats not enough. Digi doesn´t offer a pci e chassis. So we have to buy new (old) pci accel cards, cause we need a fibre channel- and ethernet card for our video and audio server.

MXF video bounce isn´t supported in PT.

XSAN volumes are not supported in PT.

Thats a lot of homework to get this up and runnin in 2009.


regards

Jochen

Please post your findings here! I too will probably abondon the Mojo over this. Even if 2.7 is a major upgrade, I don't need it. I just need 1.8 to work with PT 7.4. Just a way to transcode QTs to MXF files. If it's too much trouble, then I also have to seek alternatives.
