New KataData iPhone App Calculates Storage and Runtime by Camera Type or Codec


Emery Wells, founder of Katabatic Digital – a grading, finishing and VFX studio in New York City – launched the new KataData storage and runtime calculator iPhone app. With the plethora of digital cameras and formats hitting the market, Wells developed the KataData app to alleviate the pain in data planning and management for on set, postproduction and even non-technical positions.

The app supports an extensive list of cameras, such as RED 4K and 5K Epic, Phantom, ARRI Alexa, Canon DSLR, as well as a wide range of codecs, such as DPX, Open EXR, DNxHD and ProRes.

KataData enables users to enter the amount of footage they have by file size (MB, GB or TB) and the app will calculate the runtime or storage requirements.

“KataData is an incredibly graceful app that allows you to take the mystery out of all of these camera calculations and avoid the inevitable headaches that they come with,” said director/photographer Vince Laforet.

“For today’s apps, an intuitive user interface is a must have, so we’ve built in some cool features like swipe gestures to convert units and time code, and for RED camera users, it’s also easy to calculate stereo and HDRx options,” said Wells. “We’ll continue to add more features based on user feedback. If market demand is there, we’ll build it.”

KataData is available at the iPhone App Store for $4.99.
