    Blown opportunity

    You are 100 % corect.
    Their reseller model stinks.
    The profit is given away to order takers.
    Buying an Avid from a reseller is like
    buying a used car from a divorce lawyer who sells real estate on the weekends.
    They suck
    I'm telling you 5 Bucks

    A company called GVG
    you mean "Grass Valley Group"
    They made the best television equipment
    ever made. Their name was GOLDEN
    And you know what They Fucked up
    just like avid is doing now.
    The name only gives you a second chance.
    Avid is on chance # 3
    GVG was saved by the Profile Server- A true
    piece of broadcast gear.
    Avid does not have a "save the company" product
    I expect to see Avid at 5 bucks soon and then be taken over.

    Avid is all it's going to be:
    The market for their products is totally saturated:
    There is loads of great gear on the second hand
    market:
    They have made absolutly the worst aquisitions
    they could have:(seem to remember somthing about 27 thousand coppies of Softimage)
    Gonna run out and buy a "Trilligent" and I'll
    take a "Pluto to go"
    I have Bought my Last Avid !!!
    I have spent 1 million on their products during
    the last 9 years But now I don't see making an investment in their gear as wise
    I'm gonna check out a few TAXI'S Medallions in
    NYC.
    Also looking at Car Washes and Golf Ranges
    The editing and TV biz sucks right now and will
    from now on (wall street got it by the balls)

    All my systems are Meridiens, Asshole
    I use a 601 Chyron Maxine for Titles (Avid sucks for Titles-allways have and allways will)
    You missed the point entirly on the 495.00
    Thats Sushi money, it's just not the way to
    keep people happy.
    Avid make money You got to be kidding
    Just today fired 140 people.

    In typical Avid Fashion They want to charge
    and insult their clients by giving all 10.0
    users free upgrades to 10.1 and then releasing
    10.5 two months later for 495.00
    Just a slap in the face to people who shelled out for 10.1
    They have also discontinued promotions running
    for 18 months Thus what was free for 18 months
    is now a 10 Grand option = price increase

    My advice Buy in at 5.00 it will go to 3.5
    then be taken over. A string of shitty management has really hurt this company
    Their best asset is the name trade name AVID
    Now i'm going to "review and approve"
    GIVE ME A BREAK

  • electroflyer by electroflyer Jul 31, 2001 12:32 AM Flag

    After a long vacation I am back!!!
    Avid is F--KED UP Big time
    I have bought many systems from them over the years and just wanted to buy another and quess what? They are Raising Prices.
    Now Let Me See
    Stock in the Shitter
    Losing Money ( screw Ebitda ) and all their
    Softimage apologists
    Depressed Market for their Products
    And they raise prices JUST STUPID PLAIN DUM
    Now I will clue you idiots in why they are
    really in trouble
    There are just to many People who thought they
    could make a buck at this Video Editing Game
    and bought systems and you know what Now it's
    2 or 3 or 4 years later and they have found out
    it's just like driving a Taxi and want out
    The market is flooded with good cheap second hand equipment
    Don't beleive me check out Avidpronet.com and
    look at the classifieds
    This stupid shit company gives a free forum to people trying to sell their second hand systems
    I'm going to buy in at 5 because then it will be a takeover tarket
    It's their only hope

    You must be some kind of idiot
    CUSTOMERS ARE WHAT MAKE A COMPANY
    Avid isn't going to strike oil
    Avid isn't going to discover Diamonds
    Avid isn't going find a Gold mine

    Avid needs to sell PRODUCT to CUSTOMERS
    What planet did you learn economics on?
    ASSHOLE

  • electroflyer by electroflyer Feb 2, 2001 11:16 AM Flag

    Listen up you idiot's
    Avid reported 77% of revenue from Professional
    editing and effects sales.
    Most of those were from UPGRADES not new system
    sales and even those were discounted
    This company has artrocious relations with it's
    customer base. They don't communicate, They don't support stuff they sold 6 months ago because thay don't give a shit about the investment their customers have made in their
    equipment. AT BEST THIS COMPANY IS GOING SIDEWAYS.
    GET READY FOR THE SLEIGH RIDE

    You heard it here first!!!
    Avid has fucked so many people with

    would that a class action suit is in the wings
    Just wait!!!

    Absolutly right!!
    Check my post's of last year Avid needs a
    home run consumer product (even microsoft is
    building a consumer toy)
    Avid is mostly selling upgrades. The market
    is saturated with there product.
    The broadcasters are taking it on the chin and
    don't want to spend a dime. The professional
    editor's all have their gear. The rental houses have plenty of equipment. Where are
    future sales going to come from??!!

    HEY I got an idea maybe Avid Should buy FCP?
    Apple gets out of the biz and gets new customers for thier boxes. Avid shuts down
    the low end competion. Could work. Where are all the stock arbs when you need them?
    It can't turn out worse than buying Softimage!!

    Where is avid going?

    electroflyer electroflyer Jan 22, 2001 11:11 AM Flag

    Not into this stock anylonger but I do
    use and own many, many, MC systems.
    If you check my post of last year you will
    find that I said Avid needs new management
    and needs to revamp and kill off it's dealer
    network. They simply siphon off too much profit and really don't add anything to the pie
    My staff knows more about avid systems than anyone that I have ever met that works at a dealership (most of whom never worked on a system)
    Reconnect with their customers--GIVE ME A BREAK !!!!!
    Here is some news from the trenches
    1. some of the big dealers are laying off sales staff (I quess the stuff is flying out the door so fast they don't need a sales staff or they are just not selling. Take your pick)
    2. In latest software release they killed all
    ice boards and really pissed off alot of people
    No solution in sight. Nice going boys!!

    What a shame this stock SHOULD BE MUCH HIGHER

    Don't Hold Your Breath !!!!
    If there was going
    to be good news Why
    was,is Avid Discounting
    systems like crazy?
    Just UNBELEIVABLE they bought
    Pluto and not ICE
    For those of you who where around
    when Pluto
    was formed it was going to revolutionize
    post
    production (Didn't Happen) Dollar per GiG
    storage prices
    plumeted and left Pluto Beyond
    Pluto (REMEMBER NOBODY
    SELLS A PULLING MULE)
    IT'S JUST BEYOND COMPREHENSION
    THAT AVID EXPORTS SO MUCH OF THEIR PROFITS TO MEDIA
    100
    Want to see this stock move-- KICK OUT MANAGEMENT or
    are you still counting on softimage to
    break-out

  • electroflyer by electroflyer Sep 9, 2000 8:27 PM Flag

    Looking for value is just plain wrong
    Avid can
    be a $25 stock if their management
    wasn't so bad.

    No Focus,Too many products,Mature market
    They
    spent so much time,money and effort to
    convince
    their true customers that AVR77 was
    good enough for
    broadcast Why should they upgrade now or ever!!!!
    It
    seems that some of you have ignored my posts well all i
    can say is that you all must be in at 25 and can't
    take the truth!!!
    By the way I have been making
    lots of money off the many Avid systems I own (since a
    2030)
    And it is a real shame to see this company
    all
    fucked up!!!!

    Listen Up:
    For every Avid Sold to an Internet
    Co, There
    are hundreds of other systems
    sold.
    It's a numbers game: 4 seats or one seat for the same
    cash. You would have to be really
    stupid to buy a
    Media Composer to do 3" by 3"
    15 fps work.
    But
    last I heard Oxygen Network had 30 Media Composer
    1000's and NOT 30 FCP set-ups.
    Besides Pluto is Great
