Bare-bones Media Asset Management for simple file retrieval

With file numbers growing dramatically, finding the right asset can be a challenge. An efficient system for referencing and re-use of files becomes essential. P5 Archive’s integrated mini-MAM system provides a simple solution to find and restore archived media quickly and efficiently.

  • Customizable metadata fields
  • Cloning for offsite storage
  • Disk, Tape & Cloud
  • Option: Finder/FCP X integration

Optimized Workflows Using Metadata

P5 Archive allows each asset to be labeled using customizable metadata fields and menus. As a result, re-use and retrieval of files becomes extremely easy. By referencing file names, archiving date, description and technical characteristics, assets can be discovered and restored within minutes.

Search & Restore with Previews & Proxies


P5 Archive’s HTML5 previews and video proxies enable the required assets to be selected and restored from the archive. File types, such as images and videos can easily be viewed and replayed. 

Multiple users can browse the archive simultaneously. Additionally, P5 Archive provides configurable login areas for restricted or direct access to (selected) parts of the archive to browse, search and restore files. 

The automatic backup of Archive indexes at regular intervals provides maximum security for the mini-MAM system.

Offsite Storage

P5 Archive lets you move or migrate data offline to disk, tape and the cloud. You can monitor files, folders and the directory structure to archive files automatically. Fine-grained filtering can be applied to select or exclude files based on name, size, date etc.

Data can be cloned to a second tape for offsite storage. Encryption options protect data against non-authorized access both during the transfer and on the media itself.

FFmpeg & ImageMagick

For generation of previews and proxies, P5 Archive enables users to employ any external generator. By default, image and video file previews are configured using FFmpeg and ImageMagick.
