At IBC, the trade show for the broadcast and media industry, the Archiware (www.archiware.com) product line P5 will be shown and supported by the largest number of partners ever.
This year, 25 hardware and software companies make up the list of P5 compatible products – with NEC Corporation and NEXSAN by Imation joining the ever-growing partner network. A list of all partners with a map of Exhibition Hall 7 can be found at http://tinyurl.com/pz3rr85 .
At this year’s show, Archiware presents version 5.3 of the P5 Software Suite, now running on Mac, Windows, Linux, Solaris and FreeBSD and including ZFS Snapshot capability. Also coming this fall is the new P5 Archive App. This add-on simplifies the Archiving process by allowing users to archive and restore files directly from Finder via the right-click context menu, without the need to open P5 Archive itself.
Metadata can be added when archiving. All jobs are listed in a monitoring window for verification. Archived files and folders are represented by a link which displays metadata and previews on double-click.
Final Cut Pro X projects are archived and restored including all media used in the project. The P5 Archive App will be available for Mac initially, with more platforms to follow in the future.
