The new

KataData storage and runtime calculator

is an indispensable iPhone app for on-set, post production, and even non-technical positions. Emery Wells, founder of Katabatic Digital (NYC) – a grading, finishing, and VFX studio in New York City – knows this first hand. With the plethora of digital cameras and formats hitting the market, Wells developed the KataData app to alleviate all the pain in data planning and management for their post artists and lab technicians, as well as clients. And now,

KataData

is available to the broad spectrum of filmmakers and post-production facilities at the iPhone App Store for only $4.99.

KataData was built for filmmakers and post artists, supporting an extensive list of cameras, such as RED 4K and 5K Epic, Phantom, ARRI Alexa, Canon DSLR, as well as a wide range of codecs, such as DPX, Open EXR, DNxHD, and ProRes. KataData’s ease of use eliminates hours of calculations and frustration: just enter the amount of footage you have by file size (MB, GB, or TB) and KataData will calculate the runtime or storage. Or enter multiple calculations and add them together.

“For today’s apps, an intuitive user interface is a must have, so we’ve built in some cool features like swipe gestures to convert units and time code, and for RED camera users, it’s also easy to calculate stereo and HDRx options,” says Wells. “We’ll continue to add more features based on user feedback. If market demand is there, we’ll build it.”
