The Multi-Format Player is a free and widely applicable tool in file-based environments. Due to its extremely powerful decoding engine it can play the majority of SD and HD video formats. It supports camera, editing, archiving, video server, streaming and download formats. Thus it can be used for the ingest, for review purposes or for quality control.

The Multi-Format Player is equiped with the usual player controls as well as single-frame stepping and looping. Furthermore, a frame-accurate seeking and play back of video files is possible. It also displays LTC and VITC timecode. A special highlight is the ability to output the video through professional interface cards as HD-SDI signal. Another highlight is the side-by-side view. This allows a direct comparison of two video files for instance on two monitors. Thus, the Multi-Format Player is ideal for video quality comparisons.
