Plays any file format professionals care about

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 Streams and Transport Streams, and formats such as MOV, MP4, WMV, and more!

Switch can also play HEVC and 4K files, DNxHD, and JPEG2000 (requires Switch Plus or Pro).

All the playback controls you expect

Switch 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.

“Jump To” allows you to jump to a specific timecode, frame or time in your video.

Check It

Inspect all the properties of your media file

Check video and audio properties such as audio channels, speaker labels, aspect ratio, clean aperture, bitrate, frame rate, metadata, encoding formats and more.

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.
