MTI Film to Introduce Expanded Cortex Line at NAB 2013


At NAB this year, MTI Film will demo its newly-enhanced line of Cortex systems. The company will also be working with technology partners to showcase a host of new ways for productions to work smarter and faster.

At its booth in South Hall Lower (SL15510) MTI Film will demonstrate the full line of its Cortex::Control Dailies processing and post workflow management systems and Cortex::Convey transcoding systems. This will include the new Cortex::Control Dailies Free Edition, a starter dailies product with features for playback, synchronization, color correction and transcoding.

MTI Film will be joined at its booth by several of its technology partners. Among them will be Aberdeen, who will be showcasing Aberdailies, its custom-built server hardware designed to support Cortex::Control Dailies in on-set and near-set environments.

Bright Technologies will demonstrate Cortex::Control Dailies on its new Astella product, a SAN-in-a-box designed for smaller footprint installations requiring high-bandwidth shared storage.

CacheIO will be showing its high bandwidth FA140 flash storage array, which can be used with Cortex::Control Dailies to stream up to nine concurrent, uncompressed 4K streams, with no performance loss.

Fusion-io will show how its super-fast iofx flash storage device can be used in tandem with Cortex to accelerate encoding and transcoding operations.

MTI Film will also be showing (In association with Rovi Corporation’s Mainconcept) its forthcoming integration of the H.265/HEVC.

Additionally, MTI Film will be participating in technology demonstrations sponsored by Digital Vision (SL14518), Canon (C3628, C4325), 1 Beyond (SL07423) and Aberdeen (N4919).

Digital Vision will be demonstrating Cortex integration for its Nucoda grading platforms. It supports the setting of looks and exporting of stills with complete CDL and metadata for set-through-post coherency.

At the Canon booth, MTI will be demonstrating GPU debayering of raw Canon C500 footage.

1 Beyond will be demonstrating Cortex::Control Dailies on its turnkey 1 Beyond Super Wrangler on- or near-set workstation. It features a portable, rugged chassis with built-in 21″ screen and keyboard, and features a built-in raid array, LTO-6 as well as RED, Sony, ARRI and Canon card readers.

MTI Film CEO Larry Chernoff will conduct a technology session titled, “The Post Puzzle (And Solutions),” as part of NAB 2013’s popular educational series in the HPA Post Pit. Chernoff will discuss new options for the acquisition, postproduction and delivery of digital media, and share success stories from productions that have maximized opportunities for flexibility and cooperation. The session is April 8 at 11 a.m. at Booth SL15708.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
