I recently found the following article on the Avid Page and am a little confused.
Empowering students to become creative the next generation of successful editors, Media Composer Academic is just USMSRP ® 295 for institutions and students. Beginning September 30, 2009, students with academic version of Media Composer software (; version 3.5 through 5.5 purchased on or after April 1, 2009) will qualify for complimentary upgrades for four years from the date of software activation.
As coarse as it is, which one the student version can upgrade to 5.5 or because I understand what is wrong?
I asked my dealer on the subject already, but first tell me who referred to the Download Center of Avid, where you can the 5.5 Loading down, but then if the license of the 5.1 does, I doubt it. Would be glad if someone already has experience with the topic and can help me.
Antwort von Filbert:
If you meet all the conditions described there, yes.
Here again in German: http://www.avid.com/DE/specialoffers/special-offers-Student-Pricing
Right way, is the link: "Free Upgrade". It says it still upgrade to 5.0, but my already 5.5.

The strategy usof Avid I find actually very intelligent. Students and Lehpersonal this software to make cheap accessible. For example, SAP has figured quite late, but now many students work in NC so. want as it is approaching future potential that will use this software synonymous later in their careers.

@ Filbert Thanks for the info, sometimes you do not see the forest for the trees :-) Läuter Unfortunately, the homepage does not really, but try again later s.meinem Avid Calculator.
A real cool thing is that the MC can upgrade free of charge as a student, which is really synonymous for universities. We spend time every year is a decent chunk of money for new Final Cut Pro licenses. MC6 will be synonymous with hopefully other AJA, Matorox and perhaps even supports black magic cards.
Antwort von Filbert:
No, probably not true for institutions. indeed had an Avid employee of the information to the institutions it give one years free upgrades, but to demand he has called me a link where to stand (I myself had never read it that is synonymous). I will contact with the information he gave me but again s.Avid directly.
From the reseller I got the info that it is synonymous exclusively for students.
PS. There is an Academic-FAQ, is as synonymous:
The free upgrade site on avid.com Academic is for academic students only and is NOT for Institutions.
