In Depth

Copy | Archive | Verify

CORTEX is the secure start to your workflow on set.  Offload or Archive media to up to three destinations simultaneously, all in the background so you can continue to work in CORTEX. MD5 checksum generated and verified for each copy/archive.  Includes support for LTFS LTO tape archiving.



Full ASC CDL primary color correction available via panels, GUI controls, and keyboard shortcuts. ACES support for universal translation and reproduction of color decisions.

Import looks created via any third party LUT or CDL, or from other CORTEX Systems with CORTEX Stills or a CORTEX Manifest.

Save looks for reuse across multiple days with Still Stores. CORTEX includes easy search, save and recall options to keep things quick and simple.

Keep color consistent downstream in any application with export via industry standard LUT, CDL, ALE and XML files.  Export the CORTEX Manifest to pass on all color, checksum and other session metadata to other CORTEX systems in a single file for complete fidelity and file auditing



Automatic and manual syncing methods make fast work out of even the most difficult jobs. Embedded timecode and the Detect Clap feature automatically find the peak clap audio and allow for refining sync with sub-frame accuracy.

CORTEX automatically reads and applies camera, scene, take, and sound roll metadata to each clip, avoiding the need for manual entry.  All metadata is editable individually or as batches to ensure full accuracy.


Dead Pixel Detection

Early warning on-set for faults in camera sensors.  Then share the dead pixel list with Post for automatic correction in CORTEX Enterprise.


CORTEX Manifest - Track Media and Metadata

In addition to checksums, CORTEX generates a Manifest file to track all elements brought into the system, including files, checksums, LUTs, sync & color decisions, comments & notes and more.

The Manifest can be sent to another CORTEX system and used to verify that all media is accounted and valid, and all color decisions and notes from the set are duplicated exactly in the post system.
