Telestream continues to refine and improve playback and indexing performance within Switch for macOS. Particular attention was given to the performance of caption decoding and making sure It is making efficient use of file system reads and writes, as well as only decoding the data that is actually needed.
The ability to open files and play them back while they are still being written to disk enables live capture workflows that include previewing the quality of live video captures, extracting portions of the already written video for use in social media promotion of live productions, and the ability to confirm the media encoding of content coming from live capture systems.
The app is now capable of decoding and displaying OP-47 and OP-42 Teletext captions. This support maintains format parity with Telestream’s caption authoring tools MacCaption and CaptionMaker and will enable users to play back their captions and view them to confirm positioning, styling, and sync accuracy without the need for expensive hardware decoders.
New collaboration feature allows users to create and view flags on the timeline that contain comments, errors, or feedback. Share these flags between team members using a sidecar flags file to allow collaboration to occur without making any changes to the video. Simple to understand formatting of the flags document allows for automation systems to be able to create reports that can be reviewed and visualized on the timeline!
