We're thinking about purchasing the Switch Player but I have a question before doing so:
Does any flavour of the Switch Players offer the facility of playing back, saving and opening a playlist of different video files?
Can you explain the intended use in more detail?
Switch can open additional media files for comparison purposes (Quality Control Evaluation) but that wouldn't be playlist.
Would your intended use be for sequential Quality Control or play out for client screening, playing out the same file in different codecs for visual comparison, etc?Reply
One of the intended uses (not the only one) would be to use Switch (together with a BMD or Aja card) as a playout machine in basic web broadcasts or when students are doing TV studio training (we're a university). It would be practical to be able to make aan save a list of video items for a 'show', like you easily can do in players like VLC or professional systems like Avid Airspeed which we use in our big MCR and studio.Reply
