Steinberg CMC controllers get attractive new prices

Award-winning CMC controller system receives an immediate reduction in price by nearly 40 percent

HAMBURG, Germany — August 1, 2012 — Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH today announced a sizeable price drop for its CMC controllers. Effective as of today, the suggested retail price for the CMC-CH, CMC-AI, CMC-QC, CMC-TP and CMC-PD is now 99.99 euros including 19% VAT and 119 euros including 19% VAT for the CMC-FD controller.

While the CMC series witnessed a remarkable success since last year's introduction, an increase in efficiency of production was achieved in this year’s first two quarters, thus allowing Steinberg to reduce the prices accordingly and pass this immediate benefit on to its valued customers. The new suggested retail prices provide an even greater incentive to pick up on the system’s modular approach.

“With this price drop users have the chance to set up a controller console that fits their needs in every aspect without ever worrying about the cost,” commented Stefan Schreiber, product marketing manager for hardware.

Availability and pricing

The CMC controllers are available through the Steinberg Online Shop and authorized Steinberg resellers.

From today on, the new retail prices for the CMC controllers are valid in European countries. The suggested retail price for the CMC-CH, CMC-AI, CMC-QC, CMC-TP and CMC-PD now is 99.99 euros including German VAT and the suggested retail price for the CMC-FD now is 119 euros including German VAT.
