"The Windows version of PreRoll Post™ builds upon Imagine's expertise in easy to install and use archive software geared for the media industry." said Dan Montgomery, President, Imagine Products, Inc. "We're excited to offer this application specifically geared for demanding 4K HD RAW workflows."

PreRoll Post™ for Windows is designed for 64-bit operating systems (Windows 7 & 8). It has a 'single window' type user interface with all important functions readily accessible. Drag and drop files and folders into the queue for copying to tape while simultaneously browsing or searching tape contents for retrieval.

There's also an optional Backup Wizard mode to assist new or occasional users in easily creating archives. Imagine partnered with Discovery Channel to seamlessly format tapes and verify their contents to comply with Discovery's rigorous specifications.
