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.
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
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
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
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
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
I Stand by what I said.
You motherless assholes just can't take the truth.
By the way I'm completly out of this POS
But it is good fun to kick you in the nuts
allthough it's kind of hard to wack something
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?
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
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!!
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
Dummy, What makes you think i'm short on this stock!!!
Maybe i'm a long time long
Quess what my game is ?
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
was formed it was going to revolutionize
production (Didn't Happen) Dollar per GiG
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
Want to see this stock move-- KICK OUT MANAGEMENT or
are you still counting on softimage to
GIVE ME A BREAK
Hey boys and girls
The word I heard is that Avid is offering
super promo pricing to move some Media Composers fast or there Q3 is going to suck
I could give a rats ass about what you think
about the way I write or if I'm good at spelling or
I AM RIRGT ABOUT THIS COMPANY
AND ALL YOU
SUCKERS OUT THERE PRAYING THAT YOU
CAN BREAK EVEN
SOMEDAY WHEN THIS STOCK GOES BACK INTO THE TWENTIES KNOW
Looking for value is just plain wrong
be a $25 stock if their management
wasn't so bad.
No Focus,Too many products,Mature market
spent so much time,money and effort to
their true customers that AVR77 was
good enough for
broadcast Why should they upgrade now or ever!!!!
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
And it is a real shame to see this company
For every Avid Sold to an Internet
are hundreds of other systems
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.
last I heard Oxygen Network had 30 Media Composer
1000's and NOT 30 FCP set-ups.
Besides Pluto is Great
