Picture Head’s Post Workflow Kicks Off with Control Dailies from MTI Film

HOLLYWOOD, CA - Picture Head, a full service boutique post production facility in Hollywood, CA has selected Control Dailies from MTI Film as its solution for dailies processing, the starting point of their data centric workflow.

“Control Dailies was the smart choice for us,” noted Vice President Matthew Flint. “I was looking for a system that was truly turn-key, intuitive to use and could handle all the cameras we need to support. But it was the concurrent aspect of the workflow that convinced me. The ability to multi-task and take advantage of automation is the kind of efficiency we’re looking for.”

For over a decade, Control Dailies has provided a comprehensive workflow for processing dailies that combines a smart interface with simultaneous operations and background automation to enable facilities to deliver high quality results on even the tightest of schedules. With unique, time-tested methods for film & digital ingest, logging, audio-image synchronization, color correction, tape layoff, and automated background encoding of digital deliverables via sister application Convey, Control Dailies offers a single all-encompassing solution. Control Dailies supports a myriad of digital tape- and file-based cameras and can produce native editorial files for Avid and Final Cut Pro, as well as all popular review formats including DVD/Blu-ray, H.264, WM9 and more.

Picture Head selected the newer semi-concurrent configuration, which offers the full suite of tools for all dailies operations in a cost-effective package. With a small hardware footprint, users benefit from the time-saving, intuitive interface and can complete all necessary dailies tasks, with many tasks completed automatically in the background. The system can be easily expanded at any time to meet the growing needs of the facility.

MTI Film will be demonstrating Control Dailies, along with its new onset/near-set solution REMOTE Control Dailies at NAB 2011.
