Designed for video editors and post-production professionals, Telestream Switch 3 Plus allows you to efficiently play, inspect, and fix your media files.
Play an extensive list of files, including embedded captions and subtitles, with smooth frame-accuracy. After playback, inspect video properties, audio properties, captions, and subtitles. Make the changes you want, such as trim, scale, crop, and single file transcoding.
Note: Switch 3 Plus is a free update for current license holders who had a Premium Support contract as of May 16, 2016. For customers without Premium Support, Switch 3 Plus is a paid upgrade from Switch version 2 or 1.
More Publishing Options
Export your video directly to Vimeo, YouTube, or Facebook from within Switch. Select export, choose your destination, and Switch will publish directly to your destination while saving a local copy on your computer. Switch will create the appropriate files for your destination, taking the guesswork out of encoding and submitting content.
Support for export to MXF OP-1a and OP-Atom containers. This streamlines the workflows, making it possible to share MXF files.
Improved playback and improved indexing of files enable quicker spot-checking.
All "Play" Features
Extensive File Format Support
Switch Plus provides frame-accurate playback for an extensive list of professional media files, including embedded captions and subtitles.
Switch Plus has all the playback control features you'd expect in a professional player such as JKL navigation, fast forward and rewind, slow motion, as well as single-frame forward and back. The "Jump To" feature allows you to jump to a specific timecode, frame, or time in your video.
Full Caption Support
Switch Plus will play back embedded CEA-608 and CEA-708 captions, as well SCC, DVB, TTML (iTT and SMPTE-TT captions), WebVTT, SRT, and STL subtitle files. Switch offers full support for CEA-708 caption decoding, including advanced 708-only features like Unicode character support. It will also decode captions from virtually all wrappers and formats, so you can verify captions within your MXF or Transport Stream file.
All "Check" Features
Inspect All Properties of Your Media File
Check video and audio properties such as audio channels, speaker labels, aspect ratio, clean aperture, bit rate, frame rate, metadata, encoding formats, and more.
Use the audio meters to solo or mute audio channels, and inspect true peaks and loudness values.
Add Secondary Files
You can also load secondary audio or closed caption files to check sync.
Enough Information but Not Too Much
Switch displays all the relevant media information about your file in an intuitive, well-organized interface. The inspector is deep enough to be meaningful, without giving users so much information that it becomes cumbersome.
All "Fix" Features
Make Changes to Your File and Export
By switching to edit mode, users can modify settings and export a new file. Switch lets you specify a new file format, a new video or audio codec, trim/scale/crop the video, add metadata, and much more. Export to Apple ProRes, H264, MPEG-2 video, MP4, and MPEG-2 program and transport streams.
Switch includes audio and video pass-through ability on export, and also the ability to omit the video and export as an audio-only file.
In the audio tab, you can split or join different audio tracks, rearrange audio tracks, change speaker assignments, and change the audio format and sample rate. Switch also supports downmixing, taking a file with eight channels and mixing it down to stereo.
