DTMediaWrite SDK


The DTMediaWrite SDK components include the same extensive, robust file write capabilities available in our MediaReactor product line.  The interface allows your application to directly write, or record, a wide range of industry standard broadcast and production file formats.  It is available for Windows 32, Windows 64, macOS and Linux 64. 


ossupport     Windows 7 or greater, macOS Version 10.14 Mojave and greater, CentOS/Red Hat 7.4-7.8  

supported file formats

Write directly to the most important formats used in today's production, broadcast and scientific applications, including all the metadata, multi-track audio, multi-track video, time code, closed captioning and other tracks.  All supported formats, including IPB MPEG transport streams and series of stills (that would normally require conversion) are directly available for editing in third party products such as those offered by Assimilate, Adobe, Avid and Apple.
