Upgrade from MediaPro to Expression Media slated for June 1 release  
Wednesday, May 30, 2007 | by Rob Galbraith
Starting June 1, licensed users of iView MediaPro 3.0 and later will be able to download and receive a free license key for Microsoft Expression Media 1.0. Expression Media for Windows and Mac is the rebranded follow-on to MediaPro and the first version of the software to ship from Microsoft since the company purchased iView Multimedia in 2006.
 
To receive an email with upgrade instructions, MediaPro 3.x owners must register the software with iView here. Upgrade emails are slated to be sent out starting on June 1, 2007. The free upgrade will be available only from June 1 - July 31, 2007, after which time the price rises to US$99.
 
To upgrade from an older version of MediaPro to Expression Media 1.0 is US$99. A new license of Expression Media is US$299.
 
A 60-day trial version of Expression Media 1.0 has been available since late-April 2007 (registration required). We were unable to successfully download either the Mac or Windows trial versions using Apple's Safari browser, though Firefox for Mac and Internet Explorer 7 for Windows worked fine.
 
More information is in the press release below.
 
Microsoft Expression Media available in June 2007
iView customers are urged to visit iView site; make sure they’re eligible for free upgrade!

We’re writing today to let you know about the imminent availability of Microsoft Expression Media and the Expression Studio suite of tools. The product will be available in June 2007 for download (both Windows and Mac) as well as for purchase in participating retail stores. If you can’t wait until June, Amazon.com is now accepting pre-orders for Expression Media.

As promised, all registered customers of MediaPro (versions 3.0 and above) are eligible for a free digital download upgrade. On June 1st, registered users of MediaPro will receive an email with detailed download instructions for obtaining this free upgrade. To ensure timely receipt of this email, iView customers should register and/or make sure their e-mail address is current.  Go to: http://www.iview-multimedia.com/product/register. The free upgrade offer ends on July 31.

Also, to help customers learn more about Expression Media, Microsoft will be updating its Microsoft’s Pro Photo (www.microsoft.com/prophoto) and Expression Studio (www.microsoft.com/expression) community sites. Both sites will include information on future products and services being offered to pro and “prosumer” photographers.

The iView Multimedia Web site (www.iview-multimedia.com) and community Forum will be maintained for at least another year, so users may continue to collaborate with industry experts and former iView employees.
