Discreet Kicks Off “Shock Your System” Campaign

Discreet, a division of Autodesk, Inc., announced its “shock your system” trade-in program towards the purchase of a smoke system, its award-winning creative editing, conforming and finishing solution. For a limited time, qualified non-linear editing system owners can obtain a credit for their existing non-linear editing system traded-in towards the purchase of a smoke SD or HD.

A significant amount of the most groundbreaking high-definition episodic programming is being finished on Discreet editing systems such as smoke, ranging from The Practice to The Sopranos. With world-class creative editing, conforming and finishing solutions, the smoke trade-in program offers post-production and broadcast facilities enhanced business opportunities for a fraction of the regular price of a smoke SD. Armed with Discreet’s smoke, professionals can experience increased earning power, premium billing rates, unmatched creative tools, speed, and multi-formatflexibility.

A smoke SD on Octane MXE base system can be purchased for $35,000 when a qualified non-linear editing system is traded in. A fully configured smoke SD system is available for US $62,200 including 4 hours of storage, a tablet and one year of support.

This offer is available until July 18th, 2003. For more information about this program, visit www.discreet.com/shockyoursystem or contact Discreet at (800) 869-3504 or (514) 393.1616.
