Hi all,

I'm currently in the market to purchase a few licenses of Deadline for a small farm at my university. I'm still waiting on confirmation, but I don't think we will be able to purchase directly from Thinkbox. University purchasing requirements prevent sales with international vendors. I've gone through the long list of approved vendors and came up with the 3 US based resellers and would appreciate any feedback or reviews on them from your own experiences.

RFX :: https://www.rfx.com/ [Premier]
Motion Media :: https://www.motionmedia.com/ [Established]
Cinesys-Oceana :: http://cinesysoceana.com/ [Established]

I'm currently leaning towards Motion Media, but that's mainly because I can easily tell what's going on when navigating their site. Could be a pretty naive perspective, though.

Cheers,
Mike

Thanks for the input so far, I really appreciate it! I don't think I could go wrong with any of the three based on the statements so far. University rules do make it a bit of a pain, as I have to get quotes from all three of them. Are there any pricing premiums I should be aware of ahead of time? I'm just looking for the flat $48/year per license, but I'm open to everything.

Also congrats on the Smedge 2018 release, Robin, it looks nice!

Cheers,
Mike

Long history with RFX and Motion Media, and both are excellent: try Andrew @ RFX or Fernando @ Motion Media.

We use RFX for all software purchases and they have always been wonderful to our team. Cliff and his staff are amazing.

Motion Media: smaller shop that i have only used for hardware purchases. Team is very attentive. I have dealt with Gina in sales.
