MTI Film to Showcase Digital Restoration and Dailies Encoding Solutions at IBC

CORRECT DRS™, Version 6, Features Improved Restoration Toolset CONVEY Now Includes Support for Avid DNxHD

Hollywood, CA - August 31, 2007 - MTI Film, a world leading developer of tools used in digital film restoration, digital film mastering and digital dailies processing, plans to showcase the latest version of its award-winning CORRECT DRS™ technology at the International Broadcasters Convention, September 7-11, in Amsterdam. MTI Film will be demonstrating the product in Stand 7.418

"The new and enhanced features included in this latest version of CORRECT directly address issues that our customers encounter every day," said MTI Film Director of Sales and Marketing Linda White. "It allows artists to handle routine restoration tasks more efficiently and resolve complex problems with more power and flexibility."

First introduced in 1997, CORRECT DRS has become the world standard solution for digital film restoration. The new CORRECT Version 6 software marks a significant step forward in the product's development. Its enhanced toolset allows greater flexibility for complex restoration tasks and improved efficiency in its core dust-busting capabilities. Improved paint, flicker correction and image stabilization tools are among the many product enhancements.

"CORRECT is the only restoration package we use," said Bill Schultz, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Digital Film Services at Fotokem. "It is used on virtually every DI that we do and every trailer. Today, our clients have zero tolerance for dust in the picture and CORRECT is the best solution for dealing with that and more complex issues. That's why we use it." Fotokem has recently used CORRECT on such film projects as DEATH SENTENCE, ILLEGAL TENDER and SHOOT 'EM UP.

At IBC, MTI Film will also be unveiling a new module for CONVEY, the companion product to its revolutionary dailies processing solution Control Dailies. The new module will provide support for encoding dailies in Avid DNxHD format.

CONVEY works in tandem with Control Dailies, providing file-based deliverables for media ingested in the dailies processing system. As events are approved in Control, CONVEY works simultaneously in the background, encoding dailies media into multiple file formats. This streamlines dailies processing by eliminating the need to undergo a separate encoding process.

The addition of support for Avid DNxHD to CONVEY will be a particular boon to editors and visual effects artists who have begun to use the new format for HD post production. CONVEY makes it possible for editors to receive dailies on time and in the format they prefer.

"Avid DNxHD offers all of the benefits of standard definition offline with reasonable storage requirements and vastly better picture quality," explained editor and recent A.C.E. honoree Steven J. Cohen. "Because you can see better, you can make better editorial decisions. You can see your work on a large plasma display and you can project your work on a big screen without conforming. Once editors start working with 'offline HD' I doubt that they will ever go back to SD."

Additionally, MTI Film will be demonstrating CONVEY's AutoDVD module. It supports automatic encoding of dailies media in DVD format. As with the DNxHD module, encoding is simultaneous with dailies processing, saving time and costs in the production of DVD copies for review and post production use. Additional modules are being developed to support encoding in Windows Media 9, MXF, AVI and QuickTime formats.
