Designed for broadcast and media QC professionals, Telestream Switch 3 Pro allows you to efficiently play, QC, fix, and deliver files. Play an extensive list of media files, including embedded captions and subtitles, with smooth frame accuracy. After playback, you can inspect video properties, audio properties, captions, subtitles, and loudness.

Make the changes you want, such as trim, scale, crop, rearrange audio tracks, change speaker assignments, and rewrap or encode your media. Then use the iTunes export preset to easily create an asset-only iTunes store package, complete with content and XML file. There's also support for external preview output via AJA I/O devices.

New Features

Compare Alternate Media
Compare Alternate Media lets you open additional media files to compare with your primary media file. Up to sixteen alternate media files can be opened. Once opened, all of the files are listed on the View > Alternate Media File menu where they can be shown in Full View, Split View, or Difference View. Great for checking your multiple adaptive bit rate files in ABR workflows or easy comparison of multi- format media.
External Preview to Blackmagic Design Devices
Switch Pro now enables HDMI/SDI output to an external monitor or device via Blackmagic Design capture cards. This adds to the output options already available through AJA devices.
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.
More Containers
Support for export to MXF OP-1a and OP-Atom containers. This streamlines workflows, making it possible to share MXF files.
Improved Playback
Improved playback and improved indexing of files enable quicker spot-checking.

All "Play" Features

Extensive File Format Support
Trust Switch for frame-accurate playback of all your professional media files, including embedded captions and subtitles. Multi-format playback support includes MXF; IMF; GXF; MPEG-2 Program and Transport Streams; and formats like MOV, MP4, and more. Switch can also play HEVC and 4K files, DNxHD, JPEG2000, and now WMV files.
Playback Controls
Switch Pro 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 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. Switch will also decode captions from virtually all wrappers and formats, so you can verify captions within your MXF or Transport Stream file.
External Preview to AJA Devices
Preview your files on a broadcast monitor or other devices. Switch Pro supports HDMI/SDI hardware output via AJA devices for preview and quality check. AJA devices currently supported include: Kona 4, Kona 3G, T-TAP, Io 4K, and Io XT. Switch 2.0 also adds the ability to view Vertical Ancillary (VANC) data on an external monitor.

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.
Audio Meters
Use the audio meters to solo or mute audio channels, and inspect true peaks and loudness values. Switch Pro adds a loudness panel that calculates gated (BS.1770-3) or ungated (BS.1770-2) loudness levels.
Add Secondary Files
You can load secondary audio or closed caption files to check sync.
DPP/AMWA Certified Player
Switch Player lets you visually QC DPP files on the desktop, playing back the files as well as displaying DPP AS-11 MXF metadata. Switch was among the first players to achieve DPP/AMWA certification as part of the DPP (Digital Production Partnership) Compliance Program.
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.
Rewrap Files
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.
Audio Editing
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.

All "Deliver" Features

Streamlined Creation of iTunes Store Packages
Choose the iTunes export preset to create packages ready for distribution to the iTunes store. This creates an asset-only iTunes package (.itmsp) file which includes the media content, secondary subtitle or audio files, chapter information, and an XML file.
