Europe’s BoneheadZ oversees
installation of the most comprehensive digital dailies system in Eastern Europe.

HOLLYWOOD—The Hungarian FilmLab (Magyar
Filmlabor), Hungary’s largest provider of film laboratory and post-production
services, has purchased MTI Film’s
flagship dailies processing solution, CORTEX::DailiesUltimate Edition. FilmLab will employ CORTEX::Dailies to service feature
and television productions working in Hungary and throughout Europe. The system
is capable of processing camera data from all popular digital cinema cameras,
including cameras made by Sony, ARRI, Canon and RED,  and creating media required for editorial,
review and back-up, with or without applied color grading.

Bratislava, Slovakia-based systems integrator BoneheadZ, an
MTI Film authorized reseller, assisted in the installation, providing pre-sales
consultation, workflow design, systems integration and training services. The
installation included one seat of Cortex::Dailies Ultimate Edition installed on
a Hewlett Packard HP Z820 workstation with fiber storage and a capacity of
24TB. Hungarian FilmLab has since added a second seat and a workstation to
boost capacity.
Engineers and support staff from MTI Film and BoneheadZ
worked together from product selection through full operation. “MTI Film helped
in solving of all the technical issues and answering all of the questions from
the FilmLab,” notes Ladislav Hodinka, General Manager, BoneheadZ. “It is a
wonderful example of cooperation between developer and authorized reseller,
leading to a satisfied customer.”

Hungarian FilmLab is using CORTEX::Dailies to build on its
core post-production services by providing digital dailies services to its
clients while they are in production. “We reviewed a number of digital dailies
solutions and chose CORTEX::Dailies, not only because it meets our technical
requirements, but also because of its reliability and the outstanding technical
support provided by MTI Film and its partners,” says Hungarian FilmLab General
Manager Laszlo Aradi. “CORTEX is also fully compatible with our new Hungarian
FilmLab web dailies service.”

Hungarian FilmLab is currently using CORTEX::Dailies to
process dailies for several productions. They include three features: Mancs, directed by Robert-Adrian Pejo for
Új Budapest Filmstudió; Coming Out, directed by Denex Orosz for
Megafilm; and Parking Lot. They are
also providing dailies service for In
¸   HBO
Hungary’s local version of the U.S. and Israeli psychoanalysis drama of the
same name. Hungarian FilmLab used CORTEX::Dailies to create LTO back-ups for another HBO
Hungary production, Társasjaték.
