Avid Xpress DV 2.0
As stand-alone software, Xpress DV has a list price of $1,699. Bundled with an IBM Intellistation or Dell tower, it can cost as little as $4,500. The compelling advantage of Xpress DV is that 90% of professional editing is done on Avids, and a low-cost compatible system can be very useful. It shares the familiar interface of other Avid products, and projects can be imported and exported between them.
