#1 - G-Tech G-Raid 4TB $299
What can I say about this promotion? It's simply the best deal we have ever offered on external storage. You get a whopping big 4TB drive for under $300!
How much video can you store on 4TB? How about 40 hours of ProRes 422HQ or Avid DNxHD 220; 68 hours of DVCProHD; 208 hours of XDCAM EX; or 300 hours of HDV 1080i or DV. G-RAIDs are capable of handling all of the footage mentioned above and they work great with all video editing applications. Just connect the G-RAID to your PC or Mac, desktop or Laptop via eSata, USB2 or FireWire and you're ready to edit. Of course, if you have a new Thunderbolt equipped Mac we now have those drives as well albeit at a price premium.
7/27 UPDATE! G-Raid 4TB are sold out! At $299 each we knew they wouldn't last long. We tried to get more from G-Tech, but we can't. So for everyone who jumped on this amazing opportunity - nice job. For those who missed it, better luck next time. Videoguys still has great prices on GRAID4s of all sizes including the new Thunderbolt versions.

By now, you've heard and read all about how fantastic CS6 is with all the new features, performance and power it delivers. Well let me tell you, this isn't just hype! Adobe has set their sights on becoming the number one post production tool and when you combine the new features in Premiere Pro, After Effects and Photoshop with the new SpeedGrade color grading and Prelude logging, ingest and meta tagging this upgrade is a no brainer. As an Adobe Platinum Partner we are one of only a handful of resellers offering Adobe CS6 upgrades which are now electronic downloads with licensing. We do have the installation DVDs available for just $20 more and, as an added bonus we're including Red Giant Magic Bullet Quicklooks ($99 value) with all Adobe CS6 Production Premium orders - full versions and upgrades!
#5 - Sony Vegas Pro 11 Master Suite - $899
For years Sony Vegas has been one of the best kept secrets in our industry. While it is affordably priced, it delivers a level of features and performance that lets you edit just as well as other NLEs costing much more. One of the requests we've been making to Sony is to offer the full suite of Sony software at a great price. Sony has delivered a ridiculous deal. Not only did they keep it under a thousand bucks, they threw in so many extra goodies in what is being billed as the "Master Suite". This limited time collection includes Vegas Pro 11,DVD Architect 5.2, Sound Forge 10, Acid Pro 7, NewBlue FX Titler Pro, Vegas Production Assistant, Bonus Acid Loops and the SONY Digital Video & Audio Production Guide. WOW! This is such a great deal that it pays to purchase it even if you already own any one of the titles included in the bundle. Heck, even if you already own a previous version of Vegas Pro, this bundle is a fantastic upgrade value!!

NewBlue FX and Tiffen DFX#8 - New Plug-Ins from
I love plug-ins. They are a great way to expand the power and performance of your video editing software. We've just added two new plug-in vendors to our product line that I am very excited about.
NewBlue FX makes GPU accelerated 3D transitions, Filters and Effects. The NewBlueFX Titler Pro is spectacular. I love Avid, Adobe and FCP, but let's be honest, the titling tools they provide are not that powerful. By adding Titler Pro for just $299 to your edit suite you'll be able to create awesome 2D and 3D animated titles with ease!
Tiffen Dfx filters are the bomb! Using their understanding of photography, film and video editing, and in particular visual effects, Digital Film Tools Dfx plug-ins are useful as well as easy to use for still and moving image editing. The Dfx Video/Film Plug-in for Premiere, After Effects, Avid & FinalCut lets you simulate 2,000+ popular award-winning Tiffen glass filters, specialized lenses, optical lab processes, film grain, exacting color correction, plus natural light and photographic effects for just $499!
COMING THIS WEEKEND ONLY! Call for an unbelieveable Month-End Special on the Tiffen DFX Photo & Film Bundle available exclusively at Videoguys.com through 7/30/12
#9 - NVIDIA Quadro 4000 by PNY Mail in rebates. Save up to $60.
If you are an Avid or Adobe editor, our top recommendation for GPU is the NVIDIA Quadro 4000 board by PNY. Avid only recommends Quadro boards for use with Media Composer and Symphony, and we have found that replacing a
non- Quadro GPU with one is our top tech support fix for stability issues on Avid systems. . While other 3D cards may give you the same level of Mercury Playback performance with Premiere Pro, the added Open GL of the Quadro 4000 is an added benefit to both After Effects and Photoshop.
Putting a Quadro 4000 Mac in your good old reliable Mac Pro is a great way to extend its life and improve your performance, especially if you are switching to Adobe from FCP. The NVIDIA Quadro 4000 by PNY is now only
$749 after $50 Mail-In Rebate and the NVIDIA Quadro 4000 Mac comes down to
$739 after $60 Mail-In Rebate. Hurry! These rebates expire July 31st.
#10 - Videoguys Bundles
Over the past few weeks we've been updating our bundle pages to offer you even more savings when you combine software and hardware. In June we sent out an email blast with some fantastic deals when you combine Avid Symphony and Adobe Production Premium with AJA or Matrox hardware. If you go to our main bundles page you can find links to even more great bundles with Avid, Adobe, Matrox, AJA, Sony, G-Tech, Pioneer Blu-ray burners and more!!
