Dailies solution adds new
features to fill the gaps in digital cinema workflows; new on-set and
transcoding CORTEX products to be shown for the first time. 

HOLLYWOOD—March 23, 2015— At NAB 2015, MTI Film will unveil a major update to its
industry-leading CORTEX family of dailies processing solutions. CORTEX v. 2.0
will introduce new features and media support that will significantly expand
its scope as a post production workflow utility. MTI Film will also introduce
two new CORTEX products, CORTEX D.I.T. and CORTEX Transcode.
MTI Film will demonstrate CORTEX v 2.0 and other products at
Booth SL14616.

CORTEX v 2.0 will include a first-of-its-kind feature for
detecting and correcting dead pixels, a common problem in digital
cinematography. Dead Pixel Detection can automatically identify dead pixels in
the sensors of digital cinema cameras. Information about dead pixels is stored in
the CORTEX Manifest file for delivery to post production. Dead Pixel
Correction, included CORTEX Enterprise, automatically repairs dead pixel

Additionally, CORTEX v 2.0 will feature an editing tool that
offers a simple way to produce review media and other types of custom
compositions for delivery. The edit tool includes overwrite, insert and extract
functions, allowing the operator to carry out basic editing tasks without tying
up a separate editing system and expensive editor.
“As CORTEX has been adopted by more studio and facility
clients, our customers are finding they want to use it in ways that go beyond
its role as a comprehensive dailies solution,” explains MTI Film Product
Director Amy Hawthorne. “We’re responding by adding features that resolve
common issues or fill gaps in the digital post workflow. CORTEX is becoming the
Swiss Army knife of post production.”
CORTEX v. 2.0 also adds support for IMF, JPEG2000 and HEVC formats. Expanded format support
addresses the need to meet new UHD/4K delivery requirements from broadcasters
and streaming services.  CORTEX
Enterprise 2.0 continues to include MTI’s high quality UpRes to 4K algorithm
for up-converting VFX shots as well as or even converting entire existing
libraries for 4K delivery.
The new CORTEX D.I.T. is a free, on-set version of the
software that enables D.I.T.s to perform comprehensive media offload and backup
functions, apply color takes as basic looks or with full ASC CDL primary color,
and output color information and other metadata for use downstream. This
metadata can be exported in the form of a CORTEX Manifest file, for complete
media tracking and guaranteed color coherence in post, or in industry- standard
LUT and CDL files for cross-compatibility.
“Today, color pipelines are complicated,” notes Hawthorne.
“DITs need to manage many types of files and data, including stills, LUTs and
CDLs. The CORTEX Manifest provides an easy and reliable way to bring everything
into one system. It allows you to track your media and maintain color accuracy
all the way through post.”
CORTEX Transcode is a low-cost, transcoding solution,
designed to be used both by post houses and anyone else needing a fast,
reliable conversion tool, – whether for one-off projects or repetitive bulk
renders. “Facilities have come to rely on CORTEX because its transcoding engine
is fast and support all formats,” Hawthorne says.
She adds that CORTEX Transcode is also ideal for film
restoration operations as it provides a simple way to produce media used by
other departments in the process, such as audio, and to generate review and
archive media.
