Archiware has launched version 5.4 of the Archiware P5 product suite, including archiving to Amazon S3 cloud services and integrated preview creation using professional converter tools. Cloud services are integrated, with additional services to be added in future releases.

A second feature of Archiware P5 version 5.4 is the integration of FFmpeg and ImageMagick into the user interface. These converter tools for video and image files respectively are now configurable within Archiware P5. During the archiving process, a preview is created of video and image files in the specified format, bit rate, etc. and stored with the metadata.

Additional functionalities include support for operating systems macOS 10.12 Sierra and Windows Server 2016 and various checksum tests for verification of archived data. To facilitate cooperative workflows, archived assets can be sent as a link via e-mail for restore, approval or editing. Lastly, the user interfaces and the display of running synchronization and backup plans have been reviewed and adapted.

Archiware P5 Version 5.4 is available now from as an upgrade or as a 30-day free trial.
