May 19, 2016

Telestream, a provider of digital video tools and workflow solutions announced the release of version 3.0 of Switch its cross-platform media player and inspection tool. This latest version of Switch continues its evolution as an affordable visual 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.

Switch 3.0 Pro 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.

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 simply 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.
