In Depth

Copy, Verify and Track Media

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.

Generate and read CORTEX Manifest files to track and verify media between locations to alert you immediately to any files that are missing or corrupt.

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.

 

Edit

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.

 

MTI/Samsung Upres

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.
