  • Buy NX hardware without software?

    Hi all,

    I already own Edius 4.61 and the Storm card but I would like to upgrade the hardware to the NX board. Can you do that without buying the software again? So far I've seen nothing that indicates that you can.

    Thanks
    Brad

    Been there, tried to do that, no joy :(. The best hope you have is of selling on your old package which is the route I took.

      So, to upgrade your hardware you're forced to buy a second copy of Edius?
      Nice...

        Save for used car lots, most places won't sell you a car without tires just because you already have tires.

        If it makes you feel better, think of the second license as coming free with the hardware.

          Yes, but I could trade my old car in for my "upgrade." : )

            Maybe there will be a promotion again? Eg in 2006 customers here in Austria could buy a NX board with the HD expansion board. And yes, they liked it very much. Was our best year regarding NX sales.

              Nothing planned NX-wise that I'm aware of...

                I have 2 copys of Edius and 1 NX. I also have one upgrade to Broadcast.
                Actually, having the 2 copies helps out a lot. When the other machine is locked doing something I can go to the other machine and continue to work.
                It comes down to if you have a 2nd machine.

                    For Rokclimr I agree with Brandon, Edius just comes free with the boards (and two dongles can be handy if you use a laptop and desktop as well!)

                    Like Rando I am waiting for a new PCIe card with more modern I/O's, but I can't wait forever. A new CS4 suite is coming out around October (I've just seen a late beta of Photoshop CS4), and with lots of cost effective and capable PC/Mac Pro cards out there it's going to be hard to retain Edius as my primary cutter unless something happens soon.
                    If TGV do release new PRO Edius boards I hope they apply a more volume orientated pricing policy, as their current HD workstations have only sold a few units locally. I personally think they could have sold a whole lot more of these very well engineered products as board sets with BOB's at lower prices, and in reality have just seen their potential sadly wasted. A mistake not to be repeated.

                      I wouldnt say Edius is free with the boards if so then there boards are REALLY overpriced. Thats one of the things leaning me towards Premiere or FCP vs Edius is I can get a black-magic design board that does HD and works fine for $250-$350 where the NX/HDV boards are like $1,200 so I hope a large part of that money is for Edius.

                        I do have an Intensity Pro card in my second machine. It has all of CS3 and works great for capturing at 1920x1080 and then bringing it into Edius on both machines. I still use Edius for my main editor. It is not the hardware I am concerned with, but rather a couple of main features that are sorely missing from the first 4 versions.
                        As far as new boards, I doubt that any new hardware will debut at IBC but rather at NAB 2008. I hope I am wrong with that though!
                        As long as the current version of Edius at the time, still works with my NX, I will still use the card to Edit. I will continue to use my Decklink card to bring in what ever format I need.
                        If a new NX with all of the IO's is released, I would consider purchasing that card. Of course, it has to be reasonably priced.

                          Well I guess it depends on what market the hardware is targeting. If its a highend broadcastish card then NAB would be it BUT if its a cheaper intensityish card we may see that at IBC. personally I dont care much about Edius 5 in the areas it lacks I cant see how they can begin to compete (hope im wrong) I just use it for what it is THE FASTEST EDITOR OUT THERE. I just use other programs to make up for its shortcomings.

                            Just to correct this, IBC in Amsterdam is the same kind of show in Europe as NAB is for US. Booth are on the same level. Maybe you mix up IBC with IFA who is going on this days, IFA is a Consumershow, right.

                              oh I thought IBC was more the computer side of video where NAB is the video side of video? If that makes any sense.
