CollectiveAccess can accept the following media formats as representations of objects (formats in italics are planned for Providence but not yet implemented):

Format Media processing backend Comments
Image
JPEG GD, ImageMagick, IMagick, CoreImage
GIF GD, ImageMagick, IMagick, CoreImage
TIFF ImageMagick, IMagick, CoreImage
PNG GD, ImageMagick, IMagick, CoreImage
TilePic GD, ImageMagick, IMagick, CoreImage
Camera RAW ImageMagick, IMagick Supports whatever manufacturer formats your installed version of ImageMagick can handle
Photoshop PSD ImageMagick, IMagick, CoreImage Derivatives for files with layer effects may not be rendered properly
JPEG-2000 ImageMagick, IMagick, CoreImage
DPX ImageMagick, IMagick Pixel values in non-Tilepic derivatives are adjusted for optimal viewing on computer monitors. More information on this format and its logarithmic pixel values can be found here
OpenEXR ImageMagick, IMagick More information on this format can be found here
QTVR (QuickTime VR) QuicktimeVR JPEG-format thumbnails are extracted; straight-QTVR is kept as "original" version. The QuicktimeVR plugin requires ffmpeg to be installed.
Adobe DNG ImageMagick, IMagick
Audio
MP3 ffmpeg ffmpeg must be compiled with libLAME
AIFF ffmpeg
WAV ffmpeg
AAC ffmpeg Requires ffmpeg to be compiled with libfaac
Ogg Vorbis ffmpeg

Documents
PDF pdflib (optional); xPDF (optional) PDFLib-Lite and the PDFLib PECL module will improve processing performance; CA will automatically use PDFLibLite if available. Otherwise the built-in (no installation necessary) Zend_PDF library will be used. CA can only generate thumbnail page images for display if Ghostscript is installed on your system. Can extract text from file for searchability if xPDF is installed.
Microsoft Word AbiWord (optional); Libre Office (optional) Both .doc (< 2007 file format) and .docx (XML-based format) are supported. Can extract text from file for searchability if AbiWord is installed. Can generate page previews if LibreOffice is installed.
Microsoft Powerpoint Libre Office (optional) As of version 1.2 XML-based format is supported. Can generate page previews if LibreOffice is installed.
Microsoft Excel Libre Office (optional) As of version 1.2 XML-based format is supported. Can generate page previews if LibreOffice is installed.
Adobe InDesign - Planned for 2012?
Multimedia
SWF (Flash) - Only compiled SWF files are supported (the files actually deployed to the web), not FLA files which are an Adobe-proprietary format.
