Media and Entertainment Newsletter
Welcome to the NVIDIA Media and Entertainment newsletter. As the Campaign Manager for Media and Entertainment at NVIDIA, my goal is to share product updates, partner announcements, and tips and tricks to help professionals in the media space get their jobs done better and faster.

In this issue, I couldn’t resist telling you upfront about two great promotions you just can’t get anywhere else. Save 25% off a Sony Vegas Pro or get Assimilate SCRATCH LAB, plus the first year’s software maintenance and an NVIDIA Quadro 4000--all for just $5,990! Check out the details below.

We also want to hear from you! So, if you’re an end-user doing something interesting, or a sales channel partner running a significant community promotion, please email me at katieME@nvidia.com. Send me your feedback and suggestions of what you’d like to see more or less of, too.
