Digital Media Discounts
If you're looking for some holiday savings that won't have someone trying to beat you down in the aisles of a store, digital shopping might be your best alternative. There are a number of useful software apps offering discounts through the end of the holiday buying season, making it cheaper to either upgrade your existing applications or get the right tools for a given digital problem.
Top of the list in my book is Roxio's Easy Media Creator 9. The new and improved version of Roxio's all-in-one audio and video tool includes my favorite DVD authoring app, MyDVD, a video conversion tool for converting most videos for playback on iPod, Sony PSP, or other portable devices. The video editing app is among the easier solutions to use. The DVD burning app now supports HD formats like a champ and there are at least 500 other things you can do I haven't mentioned here. Using the Coupon Code SAVE10C9 you can save 10% on Easy Media Creator 9. If you owned a previous version of a Sonic or Roxio product there's also a $20 rebate.
For a serious digital video editing suite, Pinnacle is offering discounts off any of their products, which includes $50 off the amazing Avid Liquid. The software supports both standard definition and HDV video editing. For consumer editing, the
Pinnacle Studio is also discounted for the holidays. You can save on anything in the Pinnacle catalog using the coupon code PINN03. This one expires on November 30, so if you're in the market for video editing software, don't wait too long.
For converting your media files, Digital Media Converter remains a consistent solution. It converts most media formats with support for batch processing, including the ability to convert files like MOV. You can save $5 on Digital Media Converter with coupon code DMCOFFER.
You won't get any bruises while shopping for any of these apps, but you might just make your digital audio and video editing a little easier.
