Telestream has released Switch, a multiformat media player that provides users with the ability to play, inspect, and correct media in a single tool. Switch is built on the same technologies Telestream developed for its professional transcoding tools.
Switch supports high-quality playback for all major formats including MOV, MP4, MXF, GXF, MPEG-2 Program Streams and Transport Streams. It displays all the relevant information about a media file, and video track display includes codec, bitrate, frame size, frame rate, interlacing format as well as aspect ratio and aperture information.
By switching to export mode users can modify settings and export a new file. Switch allows users to specify a new file format; a new video or audio codec; trim, scale or crop the video; add metadata, and insert chapter markers. A complete set of audio tools is also available.
The new offering enables packaging and distribution of content to media platforms such as iTunes. With Switch it is easy to create packages ready for distribution to the iTunes store.
"Telestream is in a unique position to leverage our decades of experience in developing media-centric products to design a powerful, and simple, tool," said Barbara DeHart, vice president of desktop business at Telestream.
