Copy | Archive | Verify
Whether near-set or in a post house, the integrated Copy Tool provides comprehensive support for media management. Copy incoming media from multiple cards, drives or shared storage to up the three targets simultaneously. Automatically verify files with MD5 checksums. Copy and verification happens in the background so you can color, sync and transcode at the same time.
Track and trace media throughout post with EDL pulls for VFX, assemblies and other deliveries. Easily consolidate media from EDLs, Manifests or any other grouping onto a new drive or storage location.
Color quickly and consistently, whatever your workflow may be.
Imported looks created on-set or in pre-production via any third party 3D LUT, CDL or a CORTEX Manifest.
Full ASC CDL primary color correction available via tactile panels, GUI controls, and keyboard shortcuts. Fully ACES compliant for universal translation and reproduction of color decisions.
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.
Automatic and manual syncing options, including intelligent auto-sync functionality for fast work even on difficult jobs. The Detect Clap feature automatically finds the peak clap audio and refines sync to sub-frame accuracy.
CORTEX automatically pulls and merges camera, scene, take, and sound roll metadata to cut down on manual data entry. All metadata is editable individually or as batches to ensure full accuracy
Create custom compositions via timeline editing with overwrite, insert, lift and extract functions. Import CMX 3600 EDLs for continuity assemblies of files found through the CORTEX database or relinking to media found on storage. Great for file auditing with report of missing media and VFX, and EDL gaps.
Custom Outputs and Presets
Define your deliverables presets once at the start of production - including individual custom burn-ins and framing - for each of your editorial and review deliverables. CORTEX automatically reads these settings, updating all relevant metadata, for accurate, consistent results… all while rendering in the background for maximum efficiency.
Full support for 4K/UHD pipelines, including ProRes XQ and DNxHR.
Dead Pixel Detection
Spot dead pixels at any stage of post...automatically. Remove the uncertainty that dead pixels have been missed. The detection and operational process can be run on OCN or assembled masters using a corresponding EDL or automatic shot detection.
Dead Pixel Correction
After dead pixel detection, enable this exclusive feature of CORTEX Enterprise for deliverables to repair dead pixels. The correction happens automatically during the transcoding step, adding virtually no time to the process.
IMF and AS02 Support
Generate high quality IMF deliverables fully packaged for streaming services like Netflix and Sony, and AS02 delivery for HBO.
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.
Dolby Vision Delivery
Create a Dolby Vision Jpeg2k deliverable using CORTEX’S Edit Tool. Edit media and its corresponding Dolby Vision XML into an IMF composition with the ability to make synchronized edits between the media and the Dolby XML. For versioning, you can edit a Dolby MXF file into a composition and copy XML metadata from the MXF to segments of new media located on a second video track; then render a Jpeg2k complete with new media segments integrated with corresponding Dolby XML metadata.
World class algorithm brings UHD quality to HD content. MTI/Samsung Upres is unique to CORTEX and has been used by major Hollywood studios to create UHD deliveries from HD origination content.
