BVE 2015: Telestream will showcase the latest version of its multi-format media player and inspection tool Switch at the Excel.

Switch 1.5 adds additional subtitle playback support, including support for SCC, DVB, TTML (iTT and SMPTE TTML captions), and webVTT subtitle files as well as 608/708 embedded captions. 

Switch Player can also be used to visually QC Digital Production Partnership (DPP) files. 

Telestream said it would focus on the impact of the DPP on the UK broadcast industry at this year’s BVE.

The latest version (6.3) of Telestream’s Vantage transcoding and workflow automation system adds new capabilities for assembling and encoding DPP AS-11 MXF files. 

The Vantage DPP Workflow Portal allows entry of DPP metadata and the creation of multi-part DPP packages from one or more media files. 

Vantage Post Producer automatically assembles the DPP timeline, including bars, tones, slates and correct multi-part spacing, Telestream said.

“At BVE 2015, we will showcase advanced technologies that come as standard features in the Vantage product line, demonstrating the highest video quality, the fastest video processing, and the broadest format support,” said George Boath, vice president of international sales at Telestream.

“Today, the UK is in a new era of open standards-based broadcast operations and we will use BVE to demonstrate how Telestream has responded to the challenge presented by DPP and evolved a range of customer-focussed solutions based around Vantage.”
