    What do bh say? It will be up to them to honor any deal they put forward. GV might have an agreement with bh, but bh might have a different arrangement with the customer. GV can't realistically be obliged to honor anything that they have not proposed. So you really need to find out exactly what bh will put in writing for your purchase.

      Regarding bundles:
      On the BH site, click on the "Edius 5 Video Editing Software" link inside the "What's in the Box" box. At the end of the description is the bundled software list. It is imprecise, but maybe that's enough?

      Regarding upgrade:
      I did email the San Jose office about something tangential to this, but mentioned this very deal just this past Friday. Their response was carefully worded to say "qualifying purchase" everywhere, but did mention that I should save the receipt if I do purchase. I do not see anything on the upgrade form that would limit applicability aside from dates and hardware bundles, and the HDSpark is on the list as a supported bundle.

      Wouldn't hurt to call to be sure, though -- I am not your guaranteeing third party! [insert lawyer speak]

      2950X 32GB Win10, Gigabyte GTX 970 (IXOC), dual EA275UHD, QNAP 873 (w/10GbE). Video source typically HC-X1 or Panny TM700; Audio DR-701D and Rode NT4. Edius 8.5 WG w/ Vistitle & TmpGenC.

        Price is good. The HD Spark alone is $329.00. ALso, with this bundle you get a free upgrade to Edius 6. Because you purchased Edius 5 after September 1st it should fit into that free upgrade to be sure.

          Yes, that $699 HDSPARK + EDIUS v5 bundle from B&H includes all 3rd party software plug-ins. Normal list price is $899, so that's a great deal!

          And, as stated at the top of the EDIUS v6 Free Upgrade Form, this bundle is a qualifying product if purchased between Sept. 1 and Nov. 30, 2010.
