Cortex::Convey, is a transcoding application for both on set and in the editorial room after assemblies are completed daily, and Cortex::ControlDailies the fully featured application that in addition to all the above, allows you to sync audio to picture, apply color, add metadata, and create all the deliverables you need for dailies. 

The three Cortex products allow users to manage media from most popular cinema cameras, including those made by ARRI, Sony, RED, Canon and Panasonic. They support RAW, R3D, native DNx and ProRes recording , other high resolution imagery, as well as the latest color management workflows, and will include ACES support in the first release. Cortex also features an intuitive user interface that allows it to be operated with a minimum of technical expertise.
