Many Martin Professional customers will have received a showcase version of the new MSD MC Edition together with their newly purchased controller equipment.

It is a special version of MSD which visualizes the show you are programming on one of the many Martin Professional controllers.

Products which include the MSD5 MC Edition trial license are: M1, Maxxyz Compact, all MaxModules, M-PC and the recent LightJockey II (which now all come with a Martin One-Key).

Martin ShowDesigner 5 Membership

Dear MSD 5 user!

For many users the renewal of their MSD5 annual Membership is coming up soon. Here’s a reminder of how the MSD Membership works:

Once the Membership has expired, the current MSD version you have will still work as normal, but access to technical support, updates and fixture libraries will no longer be available. Therefore you will be missing out on support and some new exciting features that will be coming up over the next 12 months.

On your personal profile you can always check the expiry date of your current MSD5 Membership. When a new MSD5 is purchased it will always include one full year of free Membership.

As soon as it has expired, you will need to renew for another period of 12 months. There is no advantage in waiting with a Membership renewal as the renewal period starts the day after your last Membership expired. If your Membership expired on 30th of October 2009 and you renew on 2nd of December 2009, your new annual Membership will last again until 30th of Ocotber 2010.

Purchase your Membership now, before your expiry date, and get one extra month of Membership for free!
