LOS ANGELES — At NAB 2017, MTI Film (mtifilm.com) will launch updates to its family of Cortex applications designed to take media from set to screen. Unveiled in four editions, Cortex V.4 is MTI Film’s most comprehensive toolset to date. In addition to the tools and features that have come standard in Cortex for years — like a comprehensive dailies toolset, IMF & AS-02 packaging and high quality upres algorithms — V.4 adds DCP packaging as well as integration of ACES color support, a brand new extended edit tool and officially certified Dolby Vision metadata editing capabilities.
“We allow users to manipulate Dolby Vision HDR metadata in the same way that they edit segments of video,” says Randy Reck, MTI Film’s director of development. “In the edit tool, they can graphically trim, cut and paste, add metadata to video, analyze new segments that need metadata, and adjust parameters within the Dolby Vision metadata on a shot-by-shot basis.”
With the integration of the Dolby Vision ecosystem, Cortex V.4 provides a method for simultaneously QC-ing HDR and SDR versions of a shot with Dolby Vision metadata. For delivery, the inclusion of the Dolby Vision IMF-ish output format allows for the rendering and delivery of edited Dolby Vision metadata alongside HDR media in one convenient package.
The company is offering a subscription edition that starts at $95 per month, and is offering an NAB special price of $595 for the first year.
