We’re very excited about the new release, and will be supporting it soon, but not yet. We’re still waiting on some 3rd party components to be updated, and still conducting tests. You may go ahead and download this new version, but Studio Suite X and Xi will not run on it yet. Stay tuned, we’ll send out an e-blast as soon as we’re fully 15 compatible!

This is the first of a series of user-requested webinars planned throughout 2015. If you’d like to suggest a topic for a webinar (we’re all ears!) just we’d love to hear about it in the comments!

In other news…

2014 had the strongest growth of any year in AlterMedia’s history, and we wanted to take a moment to share a few milestones we achieved:
Best Sales Year by 125% (over our previous best, 2013)
Best Sales Month by 135% (over previous best in 2013)
Best uptake on new release by 186% (over previous best – SSX)
Big Thanks to everyone who’s helped us build and grow the best Studio & Production Management Software in the biz!

We’ve attracted some attention from the press as well – read a few recent write-ups from VideoMaker, Doddle, NY Production & Post News and Randi Altman’s PostPerspective here.
