Telestream Switch Supports ProRes RAW

The cross-platform playback tool includes support for ProRes RAW.

“Supporting Apple ProRes RAW in Switch means our customers can reap the benefits of powerful ProRes performance, in a format ideal for high-dynamic-range (HDR) content creation,” commented Shawn Carnahan, CTO at Telestream. “With the introduction of ProRes RAW our Switch customers have everything they need in a professional cross-platform production tool – whether in the studio, the office, or even in the field.”

In 2007, ProRes was introduced, providing a combination of real-time, editing performance and image-quality preservation at a reduced file storage rate for high-bit-depth 4:2:2 and 4:4:4:4 video. ProRes RAW builds on that same ProRes architecture, while increasing performance and image quality, enabling access directly from a camera sensor’s raw image data. ProRes RAW is designed to maintain constant quality and pristine image fidelity for every frame.

“Switch enables unparalleled QC tools to inspect and correct all your media files, including trimming, scale, crop and speaker assignments,” added Carnahan. “Then convert or publish your corrected media directly to Vimeo, YouTube or Facebook.”
