we bought 2 FCP licences in 2005 as a result of landing a multi-cam series for a tv network -and as a result of the brain fade at Optibase pre-Boris.

this was a hard decision after being with m100 since vers 2.

so i would say that for straightforward editing without any greater needs than playing to tape with off the shelf components, media 100 wins easily and training new editors up is as easy as shooting fish in a bucket

however with a few days of persistence,plus time spent on personalisations of the keyboard and with playout requirements like OMF with handles, vhs and dbeta at same time (admittedly a card feature) with timecode display and sub frame audio editing and multi-cam editing fcp is a brilliant piece of kit.

of course there are way way too many options with fcp and you would be best to spend some time with a reseller who can set it up for your specific uses. and walk you thru the abilities.

i look forward to what NAB holds with the Media 100 Mac platform. Why not wait until then to make your decision?
