STOP PRESS!! We have almost finished updating the NLE Buyers Guide and will be sending out an announcement about the new edition shortly. Any manufacturers that haven't renewed their product listings should do so immediately.

The news this month is mainly preview information about what will be shown at the upcoming NAB Convention, but the headline announcement is that Avid Technology is to acquire Pinnacle Systems. This significantly changes the nonlinear editing marketplace and we look forward to letting you know more after NAB.
