MTI Film has unveiled its new on location image and data management tool, Cortex::Capture at NAB Show 2012. This simple and powerful application includes all the functionality needed by DITs and data wranglers with a price tag of only $95.
Cortex::Capture provides onset playback of a dozen common camera formats, including Sony SRMaster and F65, RED, ARRIRAW, DNxHD and ProRes. It includes tools for maintaining color decisions by importing and setting looks that can be exported as stills, ASC CDLs and LUTs. Its project management features include commenting on frame or clips and creating templates with color, audio and burn-in options for use in dailies and throughout the post-production process. All metadata, including color, generated in Capture can be exported and shared with other Cortex products at the post facility, saving time and ensuring consistency.
Cortex::Capture is designed to be flexible and portable. AT NAB, MTI film is demonstrating the software on a PC workstation fitted with external storage in a road case and on a laptop.
MTI Film’s new Cortex platform is a family of products that marks a major step forward in digital asset management for production and post-production. Based on MTI’s ten years of experience in developing file-based workflow solutions through its Control Dailies and Convey products, Cortex brings coherence and portability to the process of managing digital assets from the set to the screen.
At NAB, MTI is showcasing Cortex::Capture, transcoding solution Cortex::Convey, and dailies solution Cortex::ControlDailies at Booth SL14706. Visitors who complete a product survey or apply to join the exclusive beta program will be entered in a daily raffle for a free Cortex license. The Cortex family will begin shipping in July.
