HOLLYWOOD—MTI Film today announced that CORTEX Dailies has added support for decoding and encoding Apple ProRes 4444 XQ. Support is available in a new update, CORTEX v1.5.3.

ProRes 4444 XQ delivers a very high data rate to preserve detail captured by the latest digital cinema cameras. ARRI recently announced support for the codec in its popular ALEXA camera.

“The new ProRes codec is able to capture and preserve detail in high dynamic range imagery including log-encoded imagery from cameras like the ALEXA,” observed MTI Film Vice President of Product Development David McClure. “Its purpose is to encode greater detail in images that will later be used as a source for color correction or visual effects. For those processes, the higher bit rate helps.”

“The number of manufacturers who support this new codec is growing,” McClure added. “It is a format that can be interchanged with other applications while maintaining a high level of quality.”

MTI Film is committed to supporting CORTEX users by quickly adding support for new codecs. The product currently supports a wide range of popular codecs, including Avid DNxHD, Avid MXF, Cineform, CinemaDNG, DVCProHD, DPX, H.264, MPEGs/XDCAM, OpenEXR, RED R3D and Sony SRMaster.
