MTI Film is offering three Cortex products, Cortex::Capture, Cortex::Control Dailies and Cortex::Convey, tailored to differing production applications.

Cortex::Control Dailies

is a complete solution for managing dailies from the set through delivery. It features a comprehensive toolset for real-time playback of camera media, applying and adjusting color looks, synchronizing audio and video, and transcoding media for editorial, post production and archival purposes. Complete color metadata can be exported with stills including ASC CDL parameters and any ACES transforms and 3D LUTs used for color management. The software can run on a number of hardware configurations and can be used on a laptop, on a DIT cart or in a post-production facility. Its intuitive user interface makes it easy to set up and operate.

Cortex::Control Dailies is available in three configurations, Starter Edition, Pro Edition and Ultimate Edition. The Starter Edition supports output to Apple ProRes Proxy, Avid DNxHD 36 and H.264. The Pro Edition adds DPX, OpenEXR and higher bit rates of Avid DNxHD and Apple ProRes. The Ultimate Edition adds DVD and Blu-ray authoring.

The Starter Edition, available from MTI Film at no cost, allows users to play back files from ARRI, RED and Sony cameras, among others, set looks and export stills with metadata for post.

Cortex::Convey

is a dedicated transcoding solution designed for speed and simplicity. Powered by a multi-threaded background engine that utilized the latest GPU-accelerated image processing technology, Cortex::Convey can create from editorial all required deliverables for review, editorial and mastering.
