TS Switch can switch content from more than 20 HD or SD video services on a single sever

At NAB, Starfish Technologies is launching TS Switch, a new, software-based switching product designed for a range of transport stream switching applications, including upgrading legacy hardware based installations.

According to the company, the TS Switch is a flexible product that incorporates sophisticated algorithms and data manipulation to ensure minimal distribution to downstream devices. It has already been trialled by a multinational service provider.

TS Switch can switch content from more than 20 HD or SD video services on a single server. It processes MPEG-2, H264 and HEVC/H265 encoded media with audio encoded as AAC, AC-3 or MPEG-1 Layer II streams.
