Bill Varley, VP of engineering at Deluxe|Postproduction says, "In a color
correction suite, the transfer ratio of film-to-tape is always being monitored
to find greater efficiencies. Deluxe|Postproduction already transfers more film
dailies than any other company in Toronto. Utilizing the MTI Control Dailies
Technology, we will be able to transfer large amounts of film in a more
efficient manner, therefore fulfilling our most demanding client's needs."
Canadian reseller Lor-tech Systems Group facilitated the sale.
MTI was at the IBC show with a new product called Convey.
The companion application to Control Dailies provides file-based deliverables
from media ingested by the Control Dailies system. Convey is designed to
provide multiple format file deliveries. Initially Convey will facilitate
automated, fully authored DVD deliveries. Future file formats will include MXF,
DNxHD, Windows Media 9, and AVI.
MTI also showed Control Dailies 2K at IBC in Amsterdam. The
newly developed version provides for generation and resizing of DPX 2K files to
HD and SD, and will feature Control Color, a fully integrated primary color
corrector with built-in still store.
