High-quality Visual QC
A single tool that plays all your media and displays in-depth information about it ensures more accurate streamlined QC. Switch gives you frame-accurate playback of professional media files, with controls such as single-frame stepping, JKL navigation, and more. You can also view subtitles and captions.
Caption playback and verification
Switch lets you playback embedded CEA-608 & CEA-708 captions, as well SCC, DVB, TTML (iTT and SMPTE-TT captions) and WebVTT subtitle files to verify timing and accuracy. Switch is the only software player with full support for CEA-708 caption decoding, including advanced 708-only features like Unicode character support. See MacCaption / CaptionMaker for caption creation.
Deep file inspection
Backed by trusted Telestream technology and experience, Switch lets you see all the information you’d ever want to see about your media in one intuitive well-organized tool. See metadata (including DPP), bitrate, video essence and codec, audio channels and speaker assignments and much more.
The only player you’ll ever need
Switch began as an idea from our own developers and employees. We wanted a player that could open and play any file. We wanted to be able to inspect that file. And we wanted to be able to make changes to that file – all in one easy-to-use tool.
Listen to Shawn Carnahan, CTO of Telestream, talk about Switch and why Telestream is uniquely positioned to develop such a tool.
