Consortium Links Media 100 Users

The Media 100 Education Consortium provides schools and colleges with purchase discounts, technical support and a communications network to encourage use of the Media 100 image processor in classrooms. With the system, students can create broadcast-quality video programs by dragging and dropping media files from applications such as Adobe Premiere and Macromedia Director.

Products purchased through the consortium will be fully supported locally by a group of specially trained value-added resellers. Customers also receive prompt telephone technical support and software upgrades. In addition, they can exchange information online via the Media 100 Education Consortium Network.
