I have been asked recently whether EDIUS will only be available on subscription when EDIUS 10 arrives. Grass Valley have just put a statement on the forums saying it will definitely carry on with a licence you can buy with version 10.
Here is the post in full:
“As you may know already Grass Valley was acquired by venture capital company Black Dragon Capital.
There are no immediate changes planned to Grass Valley’s operational management structure and Tim Shoulders will continue in his role as president.
What does this mean for you as an EDIUS customer?
You will be able to use EDIUS in your future productions and benefit from the continuing development. Our EDIUS team is still here.
As a valued EDIUS customer you don’t have to worry about purchasing EDIUS in the future.
Currently we already have subscription based services for some customers (broadcast, educational institutions) . There is also the floating license. These possibilities coexist with the license you here on the forum are familiar with.
So we give choice in our licensing model.
So again yes you will be able to purchase EDIUS and use it as before.
EDIUS 10 will be our next version.
Remember we have a promotion that if you buy EDIUS 9 now you will get EDIUS 10 for free.
Hope this calms everyone. 🙂
Thanks for all the private messages about this.

As it also says on the Forum is you buy EDIUS 9 https://forum.grassvalley.com/forum/showthread.php?t=44298now you will get a free upgrade to EDIUS 10 when it arrives which will probably be sometime this year.
