Amped FIVE Update 15018 With Customizable Reports And Further Audio Support

Amped FIVE Update 15018 is now available with the highly requested new Report Template options within the reporting feature that now allows users to customize generated reports using pre-packaged templates or the creation of your own. This is fantastic for tailoring your forensic reports to suit your case or organization needs.

Also now included is playback and encoding support for multichannel audio, and audio support has also been added to the following filters:

-Change Frame Rate
-Video Mixer

We’ve also accommodated audio support when changing the speed of a video, either via Change Frame Rate or using the speed slider within the Player Panel so that the audio will speed up or slow down along with the video.

This update also includes a smarter audio button on the Player Panel, providing icons and tooltips if audio is unavailable and when audio is available but a decoding engine that does not include audio is being used.

As more video evidence is reliant on body worn cameras, vehicle cameras or mobile phone footage, we continue to work on developing and perfecting our audio support to make sure you have everything you need in one place for your multimedia evidence.

Other New Features

Video Writer

In this update, you’ll now also notice that using the Video Writer to save in H.264 now behaves slightly differently. Previously, this would create a large temporary raw video when writing to H.264 but we’ve now improved this function to avoid creating the raw video file, ultimately speeding up the process and saving you time!

We’ve also added a warning if the video has a variable frame rate, which could be an issue when the Timeline filter concatenates two videos with different FPS.

User Interface

We’ve now allowed for more intuitive behavior when dragging and dropping a single file or folder into the user interface, and we’ve also tweaked the History Panel to support using the CTRL key to copy filters.

Unroll Filter

The Unroll filter now caches its transformation map which allows for faster video playback when using this filter.

Windows XP Support

We want to thank our users for the feedback when we recently asked, “Should we kill Windows XP support in Amped FIVE (and our other products) or there is a reason to keep it?“ and wanted to inform you that since the overwhelming majority prefer we don’t keep it, this will be the last Windows XP compatible Amped FIVE release.

Finally, as always, we continue to add support to new video formats and variants of existing formats with a special thanks to you guys for sending our support team new formats to work on!
