HOLLYWOOD—MTI Film today announces that its workflow solution CORTEX v5.2 has been officially certified to support Dolby Vision™ Content Mapping v4. CORTEX can be used to apply Dolby Vision™ Content Mapping algorithms (v2 and v4) in preparing Dolby Vision™ IMF packages, and when importing, exporting or modifying Dolby Vision™ XML and MXF files.
“CORTEX includes the most complete toolkit for Dolby Vision™ packaging among IMF mastering solutions,” said MTI Film Director of Product Development Randy Reck. “It is the first mastering software to achieve v4 content mapping certification from Dolby. We continue to add support and features to make the process of fulfilling complex delivery requirements fast, reliable and accurate. Support for the latest Dolby Vision™ Content Mapping, version 4, is another important step forward.”
Content Mapping is a critical color process specific to individual monitors, ensuring the optimal appearance of an HDR title, in all its various versions. Support for Dolby’s latest Dolby Vision™ Content Mapping v4 in CORTEX v5.2 means that the creative intent of cinematographers and colorists is best represented across all types of consumer displays from tablets to HDR TVs, now including the newest HDR TVs released in late 2019, which will have Dolby Vision Content Mapping v4.
CORTEX v5.2 also now offers support for CUDA 10 (including Nvidia 2080TI cards), AJA Kona 5 and Blackmagic Decklink 8K.
