Telestream has released version 3.0 of Switch its cross-platform media player and inspection tool.

telestream2Switch is a visual quality control (QC) QC tool and standalone media player with new features for comparing multiple files, previewing output through Blackmagic Design devices, and new one-step publishing destinations for Vimeo, YouTube and Facebook.

The solution enables loading of multiple video files in a single window for frame-by-frame comparisons. This is particularly helpful when comparing multiple versions of adaptive bitrate files or source files to the output versions.

“Switch is an innovative video player and inspection tool that allows us to quickly check technical metadata, bitrate, timecode and even GOP structure of the MXF files we create,” said Björn Adamski, originator and co-publisher of ScreenMux, screen to MXF recording software. “Switch is very easy to use and provides our developers and QA teams with quick and reliable file review. The GOP structure view in Switch is beautifully designed and clearly presents all relevant information.”

In version 3.0, Switch Plus and Pro now support direct exports to Vimeo, YouTube, and Facebook from within the Switch user interface. This allows users to easily export a compliant file to those services without having to research the correct encoding profiles required by each platform. Users select a destination template, fill in their login information (saved after the first time), and Switch will publish directly to the destination while saving a local copy on the computer.

“With our latest version of Switch, we’ve further enhanced the inspection and publishing capabilities to help media professionals do their jobs with even greater confidence,” says Barbara DeHart, VP of desktop and cloud business at Telestream. “With the latest security concerns around QuickTime for Windows, there’s never been a better time for people to incorporate Switch into their workflows.”
